  1. Snerik scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Maybe this wasn’t my cup of whisky, but I must say, I am a little disappointed. 
    • Nose
      Neat: Some tropical notes, like mango and papaya. But it’s unbalanced, ”spirity” and wants to be everywhere.

      With water: Well, water balances it up. Some red berries finds it was in there, together with the tropical notes. And yes, some granny smith apples (maybe it’s just be because I think I feel it due to the calvados finish). 
    • Taste
      Neat: Just sweet, feels thin. Some honey and apple peel.

      With Water: Fresher, and gives it a little push in the right direction. Apples again and oranges. 
    • Finish
      Neat: Honey sweet, medium long and with wood sours (and not very pleasant ones) following through.

      With water: Cleaner, with the same appely and tropical notes you find in the taste.
