  1. Volanne scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    OK, this one will run down your throat easily, but I don’t feel there was enough risk taken in crafting this malt to help it standing out from the other competitors.Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
    • Nose
      A kindly appealing nose, marked by virgin wood (including acetone, carpentry shop, green banana, pineapple leaves…) Far from being unpleasant, if you don't dislike modern whisky.
    • Taste
      We stay in this modernity made of soft spices (nutmeg), warm sawdust, and not much more. Turns to be a bit drying and slightly weakish.
    • Finish
      Wood is still playing the frontman, along with a hint of soft violet liquorice at the very end.

    Whisky tasted in blind as part of the WDTS forum whisky distilleries: http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index.shtml#help
    • Nose
      exotic fruits (litchi), citrus fruits, a little camphor and chlorophyll.
      Confit with aeration; changing nose. A hint of mustard?
    • Taste
      the fruitiness follows roughly, some citrus, a little light in the mouth. A hint of salt?
    • Finish
      long on the fruit (peach)
