Color
Old gold
Nose

Austere in its maltiness/huskiness… Quite green and floral too. It's very much on barley, husks, a little dust, grapefruit zest, lime juice, mint, and aniseed. After a while, it gives a trace of smoke, plus some mild woodiness. More earthy tones emerge too, with putty and humus. Very good in it's style of austerity.

Taste

Actually quite friendly, having in mind the austere nose. It's fruitier, with juicy peach alongside the citrus. Further, it's still green on fennel, aniseed and mint. The wood is detecteable in itself, but also delivering a mild vanilla tone. Hardly any bitterness is observed. The only critique I have is that it's not very intense.

Finish

The finish is earthier again: putty, wood, a trace of vegetal peat smoke, walnuts, liquorice root and aniseed. That works! It's balanced by the fruit and the mint, plus a solid backbone of malt. Very nice.

Comments

A rather earthy, but complex whisky. This is a style you don't come across too often (too bad). It's very well made.

Cheers! Paul

Color
Deep copper
Nose

C'est floral et ça sent bon le pamplemousse. Mais il y à une odeur de cave bien humide ou plutôt du carton à vin qui aurait trainé dans cette dernière durant des années.

Cire d'abeille, chêne, vanille et légèrement épicé. Avec de l'eau: une corbeille de fruits exotiques!

Taste

Un joli fruité exotique en attaque puis un sucré salé très sympa. Une amertume vient se glisser en fin de bouche.

Et malheureusement ce vieux carton mouillé est de la partie..

Finish

Moyenne. Fruits exotiques et peaux d'agrumes.


Comments

Quelques goutes d'eau le rendent vraiment meilleur.

Très fruité au nez. La bouche je confirme, que du bonbon haribo plein la bouche.
J'adore!
