  1. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The nose is rather floral, evanescent, on slightly acid apple and lemon pulp. It's light, on the other hand, it's balanced, sunny, sunflower, wheat, daisy. At the end we feel the dry earth, sand, chestnut. The palate also lacks strength, but it is pleasant, suave, melting. Spices, zucchini flower, cumin. The finish contrasts because it is quite strong, relatively long, on the sponge cake, the meringue. Pinch of icing sugar.

    with water. No, no change

    Conclusion: The nose is good, but then it loses a lot, too pointed, woody inharmonious

      Intense, raspberry, slightly unripe red currants, then some spikes, and a decent amount of spice from the oak tannins, vanilla, roasted nuts, oranges, apricots, very subtle smoke

  7. holborndrinker scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    A decent dram - the finish gives the spirit an added layer of complexity.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Wine soaked raisins on the nose.
    • Taste
      84 84
      A full mouthfeel with lots of spice around the edges, honey roasted nuts, perhaps some dark fruit.
    • Finish
      83 83
      A decent length finish - leaves you wanting more.
