  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A nice aperitif style whisky with a lot of fruity freshness but also with some unexpected complexity.
    • Nose
      Malty and grassy. Fragrant. Sweet fruit (lemon, melon and pear). Floral notes of hay and heather.
    • Taste
      Lots of tropical fruit but spicy (pepper and nutmeg) at the same time. Also hints of smoke (?). Thin
    • Finish
      Quite long. Oaky. Cinnamon. Becomes more bitter at the end.

    Creamy and fruity nose. Very clean taste, with grassy notes. Long peppery finish. A very honest and straightforward malt.
