  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very fruity, balanced whisky. A little sparkle, but very thick and smooth as well. A lot of tropical fruits. Some drops of water open things up a little more indeed.

      Very fruity, citrus, a lot of tropical fruits, pineapple. Pretty smooth nose, present but not punching. With some drops of water, some more fruitiness and sweetness open up, with some caramel and powder sugar, sweet waffles and more grassy.

      Smooth,with a little sparkle. Very fruity, tropical fruits, peach, orange. Thick, oily structure. With water some more sour citrus notes.

      Still a bit sparkling, but thick and smooth, with a warming feeling in the belly. Very fruity, tropical smooth, with a far whiff of licorice. Pretty long finish.

    Tasted some great "Tauchers" lately. All nice and fruity; some more robust like that "beast" bottled by the Whiskydudes.
    • Nose

      Incredible nose, which as Hvdree correctly put down here, improves with some drops of water. Tropical fruit basket on vanilla.
    • Taste
      87 87
      I had expected to be hit hard by spices, and pepper in specific. But that attack does not come. The taste remains in the area of floral, tropical fruity and vanilla notes.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long long finish. a slight attempt of peppery notes to step up, but they loose the battle.

      Conclusion: very nice dram but it lacks complexity en depth. But hey, the world is complicated enough so let's enjoy this fruit-basket on alcohol.

    Just collect this bottle. In the beginning, it doesn’t give very pleasant smell, butter, fruity. The palate is very interesting, the floral and peach flavor did make me drool, but the finish lower the score again, bitter. Maybe after leave it for 1month this bottle will be more joyful

  24. Hvdree scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Just opened the bottle, outside the kicking label. Plenty of tropical fruit, marzipan, white pepper. Now let the bottle breathe for a while and taste it again in a week. But wonderful dram.
