    • Nose
      Fairly discreet, light, clean, fresh. Well malted and harmoniously vanilla. A discreet, elegant vanilla. A fruity touch and a little confectionery in the background. Vegetable notes like moss and a little hay with smoke just evoked. Delicate!
    • Taste
      The mouth is a little more lively and nervous. Almost broken, but the balance settles on the development and the finish. Aromatic notes come to the fore in the attack. It reveals laurel and clove as well as white pepper. A small fruity flash takes over and the malt develops all its cereality (?) In balance with the return of spices initially detected.
    • Finish
      Controlled bitterness, aromatic spices. Rear taste a little austere but far from unpleasant. Beautiful length

  3. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A very good whisky from this distillery.
    • Nose
      Gourmand, apple, peach and mirabelle coated with mineral touches, vanilla, honey, acidulous candy.

      With water: more iodized
    • Taste
      Basket of candied fruits, then a lot of pepper, a hint of oak, a hint of iodine.

      With water: rounder
    • Finish
      Long enough, more bitter on peppermint, a little wood.
