  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Powerful dram, in the body even pretty hefty actually. A lot of sweet and fruity notes, very attractive for sure. Joyful whisky.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fresh and sweet, some vanilla sweetness, some banana, alcohol certainly not too hefty. Some grassy and floral notes as well. Later on some candy-like sweetness, foam blocks.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pretty some power now, pickering. Fruity, but much more with a sour edge now, citrus, sour oranges. Pretty hefty on alcohol.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still quite some power, fruity and sweet, oranges, some vanilla again. Even some hints of peach now, candy-like, and pretty long finish.
