    • Nose
      Clementine, lavender honey, lilac. Gourmet but dry at the same time, very pleasant. It evolves towards orange blossom and a more acidic honey (lemon tree?)
    • Taste
      Lots of honey at the start, dry spices (cumin, cinnamon) and a little white pepper.
    • Finish
      On honey and white grapes.

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Frankly, a very nice surprise. The reduction is not felt, it's good, quite complex for a "small" whisky reduced.
    • Nose
      Apple, fresh white grapes and dry white grapes, some clouds of iodine. A pastry side too, in the form of cinnamon biscuits. A very nice nose. Some hints of paper glue, too.
    • Taste
      Oily in the mouth, and fruity. Slight bitterness of citrus peel. Sweet apple, a little white grapefruit, and light salty notes
    • Finish
      The dry white grapes are back, coated with grains of sea salt. This iodized air goes up in the nose.

  3. Toffie76 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    But what a nose! Magnificent! The rest does not follow unfortunately. Nice overall despite everything. Interesting starter.
    • Nose
      Very beautiful, clean, rich, stuctured, floral. Honey per kilo, vanilla, jelly confectionery, a nice wax. Pineapple gums coated with icing sugar. Yum. So greedy. Vanilla ice cream scented.
    • Taste
      Below the nose. Drier than the nose. We do not find enough the thickness, the complexity of the nose. The development is quite short.
    • Finish
      Bitterness rather pleasant, but becomes frankly invasive when you add a little water. So you know what you have to do (not do).
