    A very enjoyable Single Malt. Very fruity with pineapple dominance. The leading note, however, is dark chocolate with hazelnuts. Alcohol well hidden.
    Water drop...
    Aroma ... much more delicate with even more anansa, sugar syrup, juicy mango. Traces of alcohol, completely gone. Here at +
    Taste ... smooth, creamy, sweet, more nuts, less bitterness, no chili. Black cherries came. Also here on +
    Finish .. no longer warms up as in the original version, but it is good, bitter chocolate again, but the bitterness has completely subsided, an old oak plank protected with wood polish has arrived. +
    To sum up, for me, the original version needs a drop of water to emphasize its qualities.

    Quickly rated. With water, much finer aromas will definitely come through and will definitely be tried.
    • Nose
      Intense, as you know it from a soloist. Exotic fruits and nice barrel flavor.
    • Taste
      Spicy. Light fruit. Passion fruit, great seasoning. Has a hint of cinnamon. Now comes orange or citrus fruit. Could also be lychee
    • Finish
      Lychee, citrus, now comes a nut. Again orange and a fruit basket with light fruits.
