    A great whisky.
    • Nose
      Shiny gold

      Oh nice. A balanced, ripe fruit aroma comes straight from the glass. Cooked pear, mirabelle plums, ripe banana and cherry liqueur. With a little more time in the glass comes a cooling menthol note and cumin. He really smells like some kind of relaxing tea. In the background ne track plastic, wood and what juicy, fresh ... that reminds me of cucumber. Vanilla, caramel and yeast dough. The aromas are very ripe and set. And these fresh, cooling notes complete the thing very well.
    • Taste
      Surprising start. This relaxation tea comes first. Then there are cloves, herbs and a subtle menthol note. Lightly salted caramel and bright redcurrants. The second sip is clearly more nut and a delicate chocolate flavor. I have to think about conifers in the taste somehow. Ripe banana and herbs again. Followed by a very nice fruit sweetness.
    • Finish
      Only medium ... then the noma comes but very long. Honey, tea, something warm chocolate-vanilla pudding, before it ends tart and cool.
