Nose

Un nez superbe des fruits jaunes a gogo , de la cire , du miel , top !

Taste

Attaque sucré et onctueuse sur les fruits jaunes , puis l'amertume du bois se fait sentir , tres tannique dans son developement

Finish

Seche , trop seche , le miel et les fruits sont quand meme toujours present en fond de bouche .

Comments

le nez est sublime, dommage que la finale soit si seche . Tres bon whisky by the way !

Gin clear
Nose

Säcke voller Füchte (Apfel, Mirabellen, Rosinen, Banane und Birne). Dazu Gewürze wie Zimmt und Muskatnuss. Im Hintergrund etwas Lösungsmittel.

Taste

Würziger Antritt, dann süsser werdend. Lakrize und wieder jede Menge Früchte. Leichter Rauch. Für 43% ziemlich kräftig.

Finish

Wärmend und langsam ausklingend. Die Gewürze bleiben vorhanden und klingen langsam aus. Leicht bitter.

Color
Gin clear
Nose

musty, old malt, nice mixture of stewed fruits (persimmons, papaya, yellow apricots & peaches as well as some red/berries), some vanilla pods, some beeswax, some faint rubber. (91)
Later: turns a tad greener, and a bit less diverse (89)

Taste

cool, alc a tad sharp despite the low alc, stewed & fresh fruits (less than on the nose), white chocolate, old malt, musty, some spices. (89)
Later: develops some (soapy) bitterness and some cosmetics/powder notes next to the above, weird. (85)

Finish

more malt & fruits, turning more exotic, but all quite timid/shy, hints at some mango & passionfruit, faint mint, very faint smoke occasionally. (92)
Later: bitterness continues into the finish & echoes seem less complex, less fruits, more white chocolate.. (89)

Comments

This probably would have been mind blowing at vatting strength... as is, it suffers a bit and feels a tad thin.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Nose

fruit, fruit, fruit... plutôt fondu, mais on ne se lasse pas. Un peu de cire et de savon qui picote les naseaux.

Taste

Un peu trop léger. Des fruits (jaunes, exotiques) genre " oasis ". milieu de bouche légèrement austère (boisé peut être), pas désagréable, qui le rend un peu plus complexe

Finish

Longue. Sèche, un peu épicé. On salive et on reboit une gorgée

Comments

Top. Fruit-bomb.
