  1. Toffie76 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      fine, delicate, clean, quite greedy and fruity without being disgusting. Mega-vanilla (clove freshly crushed), crème brûlée.
      A fresh vegetal / floral touch. Jasmin / mandarin. Red sugar / bourbon. Cereals / white grapes. A touch of smoke straw very discreet. It's chiseled.
    • Taste
      The mouth follows the nose. Nice length, biscuit and malted to perfection.
      The alcohol is superbly integrated and is almost forgotten despite its impressive abv. Slight, fine and persistent bitterness with a touch of "crisp / menthol". The scale is just perfect. There is a small side of grain whisky in there.
    • Finish
      nice, always with a nice little bitterness.

    Not my style, and I do not stick more on this whisky.
    • Nose
      Relatively austere! Rifle stone, mixture of cereals, malt. Pretty "acid". After 10 minutes it's still not so sexy ... Let's wait longer. Maybe a little more fruit after a good 30 minutes but these are just apples not very mature, nor sweet. Not stunning.
    • Taste
      Relatively lively. We feel the 60 and some degrees. Delicate fruity (mandarin apple), cereals, glue and a bitterness. Maybe even a little too much.
    • Finish
      Moderately long and always this bitterness in addition to touches of solvent.
