- Aroma : malt, white bread, confectionery sweetness (apple pie with powdered sugar, nougat, caramel), flower honey, grass, cream, vanilla, wood with charcoal. The taste is dense: fresh rolls, malt, sweets (chocolate sweets, marmalade lemon slices, powdered sugar), fruit and berry tones, spices (vanilla, pepper), wood. The aftertaste is soft: bread (white crumb), malt, porridge, candy, spices. Conclusion . Smooth, good whisky. Pleasant, fresh, consistent. Bread. Fresh rolls in all components. Rating: 86 (n22t21f21b22).
Mineral, waxy, fruity (pineapples, apples, pears), almonds
Spicy (ginger, peppery), coastal, salty, citrus (limes, lemons)
Long, clean, citrus

- Fruity and malty aroma, apple, lime, roasted
chestnuts, heather honey and malt. Vanilla sweet taste, pepper, ginger,

Freshly cut grass and slices lemon dabbed in crystal sugar. A bit of
butterscotch and some roasted almonds. Absolutely fabulous.

juicy. I get oranges, but also plums and pink grapefruit.

It appears spicy on the medium long, nicely warming, finish. It dies a
