  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Fruity whisky, pretty some power but with kind of a thin structure. Pleasant dram.

      Pretty strong and powerful, spicy, fruity, grapes, oranges, honey. Winegums. Somehow it feels a little thin or watery.

      Still some power, fruity and sweet, orange, winegums, honey. Later on more powerful. Some bitter note underneath, orange zest. Middle long.

    So, in the nose there is a slightly cooling note of the alcohol, followed by a sweetness of light fruits, nectarine and peach. In the background there is a spice that reminds me of a sunny forest path (ie resin).
    The onset on the tongue is weak, despite the 50 vol%. I find only a slight touch of apricot.
    Later, there are also slightly earthy aromas, here is also some dryness (from the wine finish?).
    In the finish it reminds me of chocolate and apricot. The dryness becomes clearer, but I find it very pleasant.

    The tube is very beautiful, the price of (for me) 50 ¬ I find more than adequate!
