  3. hartist scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very nice dram but also a case considering the price / quality / age ratio. Thanks to Xavier for this sample.
    • Nose
      Intense freshness, on fresh and juicy fruits and citrus fruits; very very discreet presence of ashes (rather in the palm of the hand than really on the nose). It smells good and it makes you want!
    • Taste
      Confirmation of the nose. Rich blend of fresh fruits and some citrus fruits (yuzus?) And discreet grassy notes, ashy and aniseed. Fresh, lively and nervous mouth.
    • Finish
      Moderately long on sweet fruits tempered by a bitterness. Dies on cold ashes long after.
