2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.71 points

  1. greg_0277 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A whisky full of finesse despite a feeling of opulence due to a rather oily texture and undoubtedly this earthy, peaty underlying impression.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Quite closed: A little nuts, slightly vegetal on the nose.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Quite mineral on the palate, on the chalk then a large block of wax falls on me. A little (shy) exotic kick in the mid-palate.
      Throughout, I find a slightly peaty or rather smoky weft on the cut and dried grass.
    • Finish
      92 92
      The finish is a continuation of the mouth. Extremely well integrated alcohol, it does not feel

    nose:
    fruit made, before rotting, musk, baked vanilla, the wet cardboard in the trash, mixed scents associated with the sap of finely cut plants, cod liver oil, greasy paper
    wax appears, then the cooked and candied fruits on the tangerine, the grape, the prunes with the dust on them, it opens, it starts on the floral and the vegetal, a little on the rose water too, on the frangipane
    mouth:
    reminder of the last OR still in memory, neither good nor sickening but between the two, a puzzled moment, on vanilla, the crushed banana which macerates,
    dry roasted oak, milk chocolate, a little custard, then crushed almond stones, acid lemon with and peppery spices
    final:
    this peculiarity of fruits macerated just before mold, dry woodiness, scent of organic garbage with hay, flowers and herbaceous stems, fragrant on one side, limit smelly on the other, personal the quality of scents before rot, strong and worked with a subtle mixture, like compost with herbs and earth before the work of Mother Nature.
