  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Flowers, oranges with melon and the accent of bananas. some little bourbon notes.
    Taste: Along with the first sip, you can feel plastic sweetness with the addition of flowers. Slightly oily. Flavored notes are hidden but the addition of water, however, opens beautifully. Delicate in taste
    Rating: 89 | 100. Finish quite long with strong floral notes with the addition of a bourbon element. A fairly difficult whisky in terms of its assessment due to its delicacy in taste. good thing to me!

    At first, savoy cabbage, sulfur and rubber. It takes a lot of time and a little water, then a variety of aromas of orangeade, leather, malt, black tea open up. After a while, nuts and nougat too. Later still lovage (but a sherry barrel?) And wood, very slightly bitter.

    Old machine grease in the belly of a cutter. This malt evokes really strange associations. Great stuff!

    This dram is Powerful, water does not manage to dilute the soul of this dram.

    Very smooth, you simply cannot drink too much or too fast as you could get easily drunk.

    I could found alcoholic characteristic well balanced  but nothing really specific.

    Surely unique but in terms of notes a bit poor.
