  1. wataya scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    The first malt, then butter toast with cashew and hazelnuts, a little caramel, grapefruit and lemon peel, sweet pineapple, willow grass, rocks (fresh bricks from the palette, building dust?), Nutmeg and yellow peaches, a bit earthy, musty but pleasant, a stack of rainy wood, plus lychee. Taste: Yellow fruit on grapefruit with honey, anise and fennel. After the first sip, younger pleasant woody notes unfold in the nose, paired with oriental spices. Refreshing with soft pepper notes to quince and apples in white wine. Finish: Exotic fruit blend led by pineapple; falling into an earthy peach, quince and apple mix, accompanied by pepper and wood notes. Pretty long finish. 90P

    • Nose
      Exotic fruits ! (Which unfortunately tend to faint) Woody! From yoghurt to peach! Aromatic and deep, initially, but it settles while opening and gains gently what it loses in intensity. A little grapefruit. Blindly, I could have bet on a Littlemill.
    • Taste
      We find all the fruits mentioned above with an incredible presence! A soft texture, sweet spices. Splendid.
    • Finish
      Festival of exotic fruits and sweet spices that swirl with a bit of bitterness that does not interfere for a penny.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 4/5 (initially, we were on a 5/5)
      Mouth and finish 5/5

  8. St. Pauli scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

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