  1. 2ndSip scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    similar to the predecessor batches; I still like this one a little better than the 17, has more depth again (similar to the 16).
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get (second) bottle? Maybe...], solid again, no outlier up or down - compared to the predecessors.
    Let's see what the new batches will bring with a different composition.
    • Nose
      bright fruits, peach, young apricot. Slight icing sugar sweetness, relatively much vanilla aroma. Acacia Honey.
      Bit of acidity from green grapes and fresh lemon; but stays in the background. More spice than usual; the typical Nc'Nean herbal bazaar is back.
    • Taste
      full, spicy, fruity, herbal, creamy-viscous. Peppery spice follows, but is not as spicy as usual.
      2nd sip: sweeter, fruitier, herbs again, the spiciness is not quite as strong as in the first sip. The citrus notes come through better now.
    • Finish
      some fruit, the vanilla stays for a long time (when exhaling through the nose). Otherwise, as with all the other batches - due to its young age - relatively quickly gone in the finish.
