Straw yellow. Smell :
A very delicate, floral, fresh and mild whisky with tones of earthy tones, wet clay, grass, lemon oil, sourdough, flowers, violets, roses, a hint of lavender, soft sherry, acacia honey, almond, green walnut, fresh herbs, dill, mint, hint to chives ?, a hint to putty, barley sugars, honey, orange, mandarin peel, fennel, white wine, ripe peaches, cardboard, candied lemon, hint to liquorice, vanilla, a hint to coumarin, good apple and Jasmin tea
A very delicate and refined whisky that takes a lot of time in the glass to give its flavors price. A small drop of water can help to release the aromas. When the aromas come loose it remains very delicate but has a certain depth, finesse and layering that makes it very interesting. The high alcohol percentage can not be noticed by the smell. Taste :
A powerful, rich, oily, round, balanced and complex whisky with notes of liquorice, ripe kiwi, papaya, a hint of mango, lemon oil, lemon juice, soft sweet sherry, a hint of raisins, cookie dough, violets, angelica, soft salty, sea breeze, icing sugar, lemon sweets, soft ginger, white pepper, soft bitterness, slightly drying, grass, roasted oak, Tahitian vanilla, cereals, barley sugars, a hint of spearmint, fresh bay leaves and licorice.
A very interesting whisky that is strong (natural solidified of 53.8%) but keeps the alcohol in check. There is a nice layering in this whisky that, surprisingly, tastes deeper, more layered and complex than you would expect. Give him some time during tasting because the initial aalcol hit can numb your tongue and taste buds. Let him roll quietly through your mouth to be able to perceive all tastes. A very nice whisky! Finish :
The finish is medium to long, slightly drying and oily with notes of soft bitter oak, salt, citrus, lemon oil, a hint of sherry and some white chocolate. I must say that I find this subtle whisky very interesting and he has more to offer than you might suspect. There is a nice structure in the aromas and with some water the fruity and floral tones are accentuated even more. And then the rarity: a closed distillery in a limited edition. Yes, you pay the main prize for that. The price-quality ratio is therefore totally out of balance. Beautiful whisky but I certainly will not buy it! Rating :
