  1. YD84 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Wet rocks, seashells, peaches, tropical fruits, lemon, earth, pepper, hint of smoke. Complex and intriguing.

    You can guess the distillate, but unfortunately it is overwhelmed by too much wood.

  3. 2ndSip scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    fruity on the nose, spicy on the palate; for me a good summer whisky with a few rough edges, but overall quite soft and pleasant to drink.
    Not much happens at the back then; it's too young for that.
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get (second) bottle? Maybe...]

      mushy peach and apricot. Yellow-red apple. A tropical fruit compote, but without being able to grasp a specific fruit (mango, papaya, pineapple, banana).
      In the background light, very light smoke, which also has something moss-like about it (towards wet peat); the maritime only comes with a long time lag.
      Citrus notes and also something floral are added. Seasoning from the rye casks comes through, but remains rather subtle in the background.

      sweetish-spicy, creamy-viscous. Peppery but not spicy. cinnamon spice. Light heather smoke on exhale. Honey and salty caramel.
      2nd Sip: softer, more fruit, creamy mouthfeel again. Peppery on the tongue, turning into spice; the rye casks are noticeable in the form of maltiness.
    • Finish

      dry on the tongue, very light (maritime) smoke. Some wood spice. Overall medium to long lasting. The maritime touch is coming back with a significant delay.
