    declination sauternes!
    • Nose
      vanilla, caramel, malt, dry white wine
      a little lemon and mandarin associated with apple, it's cool
    • Taste
      malt, vanilla, spice there and feeling of floral freshness
      it's sweet, light, fruity
      Sauternes, yes if you find it a bit sweet, pastry chef.
    • Finish
      short, simple and without complexity
      good starter, but that's it !!

  3. HammerHead scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    A very flowery honied sweet nose with some vanilla and citrusfruit notes, actually quite nice.

    Tastes similar but lacks some subtlety, like all sweetness is coming from the previous cask content and not from the cask itself.

    The finish is on the short side with a little oak wood bitter... leaves me somewhat underwhelmed.

    Overall this is pretty ok.
