    Nice nosing whisky and one on my list for quite some time. But the nose was the best part., the development is quite interesting, starts thin and watery but does improve. Still not what I hoped for and the nose promised.

      Honey, floral and a little bit sour. Somewhat of an offnote but that disappears. Empty cigar box, pencil shavings. Faint dusty note, almost overripe apples. Grassy notes develop, menthol.

      Thin and wattery, I could say delicate but it is just thin. A shame that it is not living up to the expectations created when nosing this. Apples and honey, musty, some fennel. More on honey after some time, some herbal and menthol notes. notnotesnotes

      Midlong finish on overripe apples. Tobacco leafs, little bit of spices. Some black pepper, honey and fennel again.

    An extraordinary great nose, such a pity the palate doesn't deliver on that promise. Not that it's bad, I just hoped for a bit more, after sniffing that beautiful old school scent for so long, almost afraid to drink it and loose it...

    A whisky for aniseed drink lovers! Really atypical as a profile.

  10. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    I never had so much salmiac and anise in my whisky! Very odd profile but a fun experience (tasted at the Witch 2014)
    • Nose
      Starts with soft melon and peardrops. Also bubblegum and marshmellows. Later on more salmiac and black liquorice (called 'drop' in NL).
    • Taste
      It's salmiac all the way now. Lots of anise as well. Pastiche. Could be ouzo! A light touch of oakiness. Whiff of smoke at the background?
    • Finish
      Not that long. Salty and a little pepper. Cadamon. Liquorice.
