  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: Immediately extremely complex! Noble wood combined with tropical fruitiness and all Nut variations of this earth! In addition vanilla, fudge, honey, oranges, sandalwood, ancient Tokay with enormous and refreshing acidity! It's this acidity that gives the malt an incredible liveliness, and it's so intense that it threatens to leap out of the glass. I do my best to keep him in, and before I take the first sip, notes of marzipan, apricot jam, baklava, and exotic spices appear. A dreamlike nose!

    Mouth: Powerful and enormously citrusy, and again it reminds me of a sweet wine of the very first kind, in which the acidity dances on the tongue in the taste. But no, it is still a whisky, because the alcohol is clearly noticeable, if not too strong, then surprisingly soft and elegant, not as diverse as the fragrance, but still first-class! Silky, with fine tannins, fine wood, nutty, fruity, some marzipan, tea and raisins.

    Finish: Long, elegant, super silky, nutty, and now again with exotic fruits and minimal wood.

    Conclusion: A wonderfully elegant malt, excellent ... and this nose ... a dream!
