    • Taste
      dry menthol herbs, vanilla, sweet fruit, creamy caramelized back.
      the woody is dry, but gives consistency, back more spicy.

    No crazy complexity, but what a wave of pleasure! I was picked! Enthusiasm 5/5 Whisky n ° 1288
    • Nose
      Flowers and coconut the most beautiful effect! Sweet and sensual. Cottony and buttered

      Light, fluid, evanescent, velvety. In short: dazzling!
    • Finish
      Easy, silky. Sweet spices, vanilla and coconut.

  5. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Fresh nose and tingling on honey, a hint of wax, strawberry and a hint of grass. The mouth is fresh too, floral, on beeswax, white flowers. The dilution makes the attack even more fruity and greedy (milk-strawberry). Final of medium length in the aromatic line of the mouth and without astringency. A good daily dram on the freshness and very easy drinkable.

  6. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Luscious sweet & sour summer whisky. Perfectly balances. I'ts almost like a tropical cocktail to enjoy on the beach!
    • Nose
      Extremely sweet, candied and syrupy. Vanilla cream, sweet pineapple, tinned peach, strawberry and icing sugar. All this sweetness is cooled by a good portion of mint. Later, there sweetness changes to honey, caster sugar, and the pure mint is accompanied by eucalyptus, chamomile and other fragrant herbs. There is some earthy note, on licorice root, but it fits surprisingly well.  
    • Taste
      Beautifully balanced between sweet and sour, with a right amount of bitterness. The vanilla, cream, icing sugar and lush fruits (even passion fruit!) are there. The sourness seems like the freshness of pineapple and a bit of lemon. The herbs counterbalance the fruit, pepper gives it a pleasant kick. 
    • Finish
      Quite long, medium-sweet, with a pleasant acidity and bitterness. It has papaya, peach, pineapple, banana custard (with vanilla), chamomile, Moroccan mint tea (including sugar) and pepper.
