    A dream whisky for a late summer sunny afternoon. Airy, light
    I think prolonged aeration should be very profitable to amplify its expressiveness (I could taste only a sample). The distillate is clear and pure. The footprint of the wood is minimal. Beautiful bottle, undeniably, and underestimated. His only fault is to bear the dilution very badly: no water, otherwise the whisky becomes bland and flat.

    • Nose
      Crushed almonds. A dash of lemon juice. A hint of vanilla powder. With aeration, all this amplifies and reveals candied fruit: pineapple, melon and papaya. Flushes of aromatic plants come and go. Estival. Air. Lightweight. Elegant. Attractive.
    • Taste
      Soft, round, full. The candied fruits are more marked, coated with fresh cream, sprinkled with vanilla. The almonds have turned into a light frangipane in the background. Very sweet spices of oak, and very discreet. Very little wood in this bottling from a second filling drum;
    • Finish
      Acidulated as a candy or fruit sorbet. Mango, orange. Notes of pink grapefruit and candied lemon. Refreshing, stimulating, sexy. Long and titillating persistence on the tangy mango-orange cocktail.
