  1. SimonOHA scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A little ovniesque for my part, was unique. Difficult to know on which foot to dance, both very pleasant and barely passable depending on the sips.
    • Nose
      Versatile nose really complicated to analyze (not negative). Mineral on a damp moss near the cliffs, wood in the middle of a light drizzle which masks a slightly heavier smoke. Sweetness of overripe tropical fruits diluted in dried and stone fruit juice. Cinnamon caramel.
    • Taste
      Exuberant mouth in the same vein, very aromatic. Green and ripe banana, oranges, cherry brandy, plum alcohol, wet wood, tiny smoke. It still stings a little, it does not make you forget its age...
    • Finish
      Final which keeps an impressive aromatic length. Warm on dried apricots and iodized caramel.

  3. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Light and vinous nose, greedy, red fruits, clafoutis, fruit salad, between papaya, mango, pineapple, kiwi and lychee. Soy sauce, discreet smoke a little charcoal. Noble wood, orange and quince marmalade, polish. Mineral, fruity palate, peaches and pears, then the spices rise, black pepper, nutmeg, ginger. More wood, hint of salt and mint, gingerbread. Fairly long and juicy finish, slight bitterness, heather, cola, bark. brown sugar.
