- Nose: Anise, yellow fruit, vanilla, also something green and unripe fruit, soft spiciness, complex, some old books.
Taste: Lots of yellow fruit, vanilla, some banana, sweet spicy, some leather and wood, old books, complex. A noticeable touch of old school whisky. Yummy.
Finish: Yellow fruits, vanilla, spices, something friendly wood, aromatic hint. Medium, perhaps longer.
- A fresh and fruity summer dram with plenty of oak influence, but never too much. Although they shouldn't have left this in the cask for another year.
Fruity and fresh with a slight sourness. Green apples, grapes, lemon and pink grapefruit, which brings along a slight bitterness. Some wood shavings and a hint of coconut. After a while a more vegetal note appears, some pine sap also. One thing is for sure, there's lots going one here.
Juicy and oaky with a hint of smoke. Some bitterness, but not too much. Pretty spicy with some white pepper. But also a layer of fruity sweetness. Pear and honey glazed apples.
Oaky and sweet (cotton candy). Medium in length.

- The last time I tasted this I wasn't too impressed, but I think I may have had a different whisky or two before that moment. Try this with a clean palate, make it the first thing you take after not eating or drinking for a few hours. You will not regret it.
So fresh! Fruity and floral, big malt and oak and really big sweetness. Vanilla sugar, icing, white chocolate and honey. Really great stuff, I can sniff this for ages.
A little prickle at first but that massive sweetness takes over quickly. Some spices, but all in the shadow of this apricot marmalade, sugary, flowery, caramel and honey sweetness. Big oak as well, adding that slightly sharpish note and making it a bit dry, but I just can't wrap my mind around that lovely sweet load of flavors.
Long, warming, mouth watering and sweet. The fruit jelly keeps going, as well as the burnt sugar honey aroma with an ever so slight bitter oaky note. This all lasts for a long time. Sit back and enjoy.
A hint of smoke/peat. Raisins, sherry and malt. Floral and very fresh.
Peppery and spicy, followed by a very pleasant sweetness. Honey ! Also white chocolate. Mouthfilling.
Longlasting. At first a little bitterness, after that sweet like honey.
