    Very interesting for a taste test. Not sure I'd buy a whole bottle.

    Nose: light, sweet, flowery, not smokey

    Tongue: special flavour - kind of intense, not in a bad way.

    Finish: not too intense. Kind of herbal. Not very smokey or peaty.

    A very light everyday Whisky. Gentle sweetness (butterscotch?), little bit of vanilla. In the finish you get a little bit of an alcoholic touch.

    Wonderful mix of honey lime and a hint of the sea with some light floral notes as well.

    Soft edged whisky. Not a special whisky, but it has some tertiary, earthy notes which makes it interesting to me. Aroma's of sourdough bread with some light fruity notes on the background. Soft attack in the mouth, and the taste goes on for more than 10 minutes. good whisky

    Since I like the new 12er clearly better
    • Nose
      Salt with honey
    • Taste
      Banana, honey, a bit of cereal
    • Finish
      slightly alcoholic with a short to medium-long finish

    A flat thing. I miss the character.
