  1. Nosingbär scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Surprisingly fruity, fresh, with banana and lemon. Lemon cake. Pleasant in aroma, but not much in the taste and finish.

    N&T from 04/02/2022 (http://classicdram.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=105325#p105325 )
    Conclusions. Mysterious drink. There are doubts that blindly I could unequivocally recognize it as whisky. Organoleptically, it is more like a gin with an unusually silky texture. True, it also has something in common with Japanese whisky aged in Mizunara or Japanese cedar. Because of the potency, the best part of testing is the taste. For me personally, the drink lacks most of all the moderately spicy spices that are characteristic of a quality traditional molt. It is difficult to understand how to evaluate it - there is nothing special to compare it with. Perhaps it is worth proceeding from the fact that although this is atypical, it is still a molt. In addition, it is not so trivial - it is definitely brighter than most blends. I believe that in this case 78 points will be enough
    • Nose
      Aroma: Moderately intense and full-bodied, very soft and extremely distinctive. Both strongly spicy sweetish-sugary fresh herbs and roots dominate, as well as extracts from them with a specific medicinal bias. The bouquet is somewhat reminiscent of a complex mixture of scents of lovage, anise, valerian and marshmallow, complemented by light coniferous and juniper resinous notes, as well as floral and perfume motifs. Some kind of gin. From fruit mostly overripe peaches. Everything else is a weak background: vanilla, butter cream and modest woody motifs are barely felt. Well integrated, persistent over time, but generally shallow. A very unusual whisky profile.
    • Taste
      Taste: not too strong, silky, close to aroma. Watery at first. With the first sip, the same dominant spicy herbs and roots with a medicinal slant appear against the background of overripe bananas and barely sharp spices, covered with moderate sweetness. Subsequent sips add floral-perfumery and woody-resinous notes, honey, light creamy-cream tones, a little vanilla and citrus zest. Soft tannins at the end. Generally friendly and smooth with an irresistible lean towards herbal-spicy and perfumery themes. As well as aroma strongly differs from classical canons.
    • Finish
      Finish: between short and medium, moderately sweet in combination with a bit of medicinal herbs and roots, moderately spicy spices and light woody-resinous shades. A little bitter at the end.
