    Tasted with Aby and JJ.
    • Nose
      Extremely fruity! Apple, pear, peach and apricot. Some liquorice and leather. 
    • Taste
      Fruity, liqurorice and cereals - corn flakes.
    • Finish
      Sweet and lingering soft spices.

  2. Snerik scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    It’s a very simple whisky, but enormous in it’s simplistic way.  
    • Nose
      The first thing that hits me is a very mild honey note, this gentle little whisky lady. Tropical fruits, like mango and papaya, And slight citrus notes. It’s very “simple” in a sense, but very clean. 
    • Taste
      There’s a lot of depth within these few, (simple) notes. But it’s still a very fresh dram this with the fruit and citrus notes. 
    • Finish
      Not a super long finish, but feeling you get from the first zip carries the whisky all way. Citrus, fruits, honey, all the same, but in a very good way.
