  1. DramALife scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Tasted Blind in an event. Sweet fruity malt, a great morning dram.

    81-85 - Another dram welcomed
    • Nose
      Light & delicate. Candied fruits. Whiff of citrusy. With water, it induces a touch of floral notes.
    • Taste
      Mouthcoating. Malty with barley sugar sweetness. A lot more peppery spices compared to the nose. Toasted oak. A touch of milk chocolate. Again, a touch citrusy.
    • Finish
      Mid, malty finish. Slight oak bitterness. Orchard fruits.

    • Nose
      Soft nose, with traces of citrus, but overall it's rather mineral. This whisky evolves in a genre that may, at first glance, seem flat. But which in general conceals beautiful things, however it will take time. Malty, buttery.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the texture is very oily, with a spicy, woody return, but not at all in the extremes. It is indeed overtaken by this minerality, this chalky aspect that I like. Vanilla, cereals, sweet butter cookie.
    • Finish
      The finish offers dried apricots, without the notion of sweetness. It's really a particular style, because we could miss its pleasure. There are beautiful flavors, but it is true that at first sight, it seems to lack relief, which is not the case... Finally, it is complicated to explain in two words, you have to taste it to understand. Vanilla and progressively more herbaceous, still mineral. Gingham pastille.
