    Fresh pineapple juice. One more point was given a week after the bottle was opened.

      Compared to #3522, this one had more golden gooseberries at the beginning. Yellow pluots, vanilla buttercream icing, bubble tea, followed by loads of green apples. Kept nosing, dried figs, jackfruits and a truckload of pineapples.

      Loquats, some yellow plum then completely transformed into pineapples. Juicier and juicier in the mouth. Hang on, it really was just pineapple juice, hmm... pretty interesting. I like it, but the problem is, it's way more expensive than the freshest pineapple juice you can find!

      Of course, it kicked off with pineapples, seconds later you'd get those little Japanese sweet potatoes, custard, sweet hay with a tiny bit of smoke and some pepper powder.

    wow, it was better than expected, I feel a big surprise. I haven't seen relevant information describing what it is, but I tend to think it is Balvenie, a well-balanced flower-fruit Speyside tonality. I think this one is great.

    Secret Speyside 27 year 1994-2021 by Le Gust

    =>Nose:
    Balvenie, vanilla

    =>Taste:
    start with honey chrysanthemum and the favor is disappeared very. quickly. I prefer the Speyside Single Malt 1989 by Thompson Bros for TWE which have a longer finish.

    =>Score: 84 [Recommend to try]

    nose:
    on the fruit basket cooked in compote, sweet, honeyed,
    on the wood of an old dusty armchair
    blocked:
    it causes, a basket of scents! between the sweet fruits, undifferentiated at this time, on the velvety white honey congealed, on slightly peppery spices (white pepper), it's intense and sweet at the same time, unctuous!
    final:
    long that juggles between fruit, woodiness, sweet honey and old polish oozing from an armchair backrest
    to let it rest a bit.
