    Pleasant, fruity and some vegetal notes, pretty smooth without being pale, enough character left.

      Pretty smooth initially with then some more pickering mouthfeel. Fruity, citrus, vegetal, plants. Pretty thick structure.

      Still pretty smooth, vegetal and citrus fruits, with a little bitterness now as well, grapefruits. Middle long finish.

  6. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Tasted in parallel with the 2022 edition. This one is much more to my taste.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Slightly rubbery, with strawberry, wood, camphor, very light passion fruit pulp. Very slightly floral with a nice complexity.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth it is a little closed, but there is smoke, a slight peat, red fruit and a nice dose of camphor.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Liquorice, camphorated and slightly smoky finish.

    Appearance: Medium amber-bronze.

    Nose: Spicy ginger, fruits, dried fruits, vanillas, persimmon, orange, interesting fruit nose.

    Palate: Malt sugar, citrus, raisin, oak, vanilla, ginger, stone fruit, biscuits.

    Finish: Sweet and spicy, creamy.

    With Water: Definitely needs some to tame it. Softer, sweeter, fruitier.

    Overall: Lovely and unique fruit and spices overlay creamy malt and vanilla.

  14. Kawauso scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    The nose is light, but lacking in character, giving the impression of youth.
    The taste is predominantly acidic, with hints of plum and apricot.
    The aftertaste is quite short and not extravagant.
    Somewhat disappointing, given the price.
