  1. ThorstenH scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Bene's description fits very well. The alcohol is too present in the mouth for me. Unfortunately, rum casks with whisky have rarely convinced me so far.

    Nose: fresh and crisp, tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, papaya, coconut), apples and pears, gooseberries, vanilla sweetness, some cowshed and pleasantly musty. Great nose!

    Palate: powerful and full presence, creamy, vanilla, apple, tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, papaya), gooseberry, cowshed, white pepper

    Finish: medium length, pineapple, vanilla, perfume note, some pepper, some cowshed

    Rating: sometimes the unpeated whisky and the rum cask are just right. I'm blown away by the nose, on the palate and on the finish it's unfortunately a bit alcoholic, but also there fully aromatic. Tropical fruits and cowshed play well together here and deliver a nice (albeit a bit weird) taste experience. With water, the tropical fruits and the cowshed come out more clearly, and the alcohol recedes into the background, but it loses some of its presence. Nice thing. I like!

    89/100 or 7/10
