  1. Ranek scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    it's really good, not outstanding but unusual.
    • Nose
      That's a little stinker! Smells of biscuits / cookie dough which has been placed next to a cheeseboard, but not unpleasant despite the strange combination. In addition matches, yellow fruits and subtle vanilla. The second one then smokes a bit smoke - but nice and discreet.
    • Taste
      rather mild. sweet and spicy-herbaceous, slightly astringent and again yellow fruits (so a mixture of grapefruit and gooseberry or / and white Johanisbeere).
    • Finish
      Great finish with subtle smoke and fruit
