  3. penumbra scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      High-impact cream cake, snake fruit with a shiny surface, white paint on the outer layer of the wooden fence, freshly baked red bean filling dessert, bright apricot and banana filling, warm and moist cinnamon, toffee, vanilla, char Sugar, cream pudding, coconut milk.
      The smell of paint is weaker than that of conventional Meiwei. There are more soft and wet red bean fillings, and some coconut milk makes the whole look less greasy.
    • Taste
      Chixiaodou ice cream, vanilla, caramel, spices, unexpected orange flavor, ginger juice, hard bread.
    • Finish
      Long, silky ginger, slightly burnt, oak, vanilla.

  5. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    As a very nice drink. On the positive side, I do not find it as difficult as it is with Bourbon.
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, fresh oak, old leather, present alcohol, resin, wild honey
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly slow onset, sweet but dry, dry wood, licorice, honey
    • Finish
      Pleasant oak, short heat, very thin and barely smelly, very fast away

    Balance: ( 23/25)  Well put together, alcohol seems  a little strong the whole way through, but not bad.

    Overall: (81/100) Well put together, interesting orange flavors, and nice blend of spices.
    • Nose
      Nose: ( 20/25) Oddly I think I can smell the wheat,
      almost like a freshly baking wheat bread.  Yet its also got a good bit
      of spices, and yeasty baked goods in the aroma.  The dominant fruits
      seem to be oranges with a touch of apple to round it out.
    • Taste
      Taste: ( 18 /25)  Cinnamon buns, and orange juice, with a good amount of wood flavors coming later in with a lot of vanilla and even more spices.
    • Finish
      Finish: ( 20 /25) Lots
      of oranges, and spices, some of which are cinnamon, and clove.  Then
      there is just a huge wave of vanilla coupled with a nice sweetness.
