    It's sublime, on the fruity and the freshness. No flaws, could it be just could have dreamed of more than watt?
    • Nose
      Absolutely sublime nose. Exotic bomb. Passion, pineapple, peach with syrup, white grapes. Bays.
      White flowers. Elderflower. White pepper.
      Very light wood wrapped with cocoa powder.
      Light vanilla.
      Light dried herb Pine.
      With aeration a little green apple.
    • Taste
      On the palate it's a fruity sweetness to fall.
      White flowers, elderberry, peach, apricot, plum, quince.
      Light wood and light camphor.
    • Finish
      Final shower on the exotic fruit wrapped with fresh mint. Fresh pepper. Aromatic herbs.

  3. Malinois scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    I really love this style, one of the best things I tasted until now.. 
    • Nose
      Very fruity, unripe bananas, fresh, something papaya/mango/pineapple mix alike: so tropical in a way I never tasted before, bit sweet, after a while the earthy peat shows itself on the background 93
    • Taste
      Fresh fruit attack on the papay/mango/pineapple mix and then boom!: becomes heavy on the taste buds, like it clammed them out of nowhere: creamy coastal, very soft mineral peat 94
    • Finish
      Long, unripe bananas getting pushed away by the tropical mix which get driven away by some soft peat, very juicy oak in the background, just lovely 91

    Tasted at Infinity of Spirits 2017 11/16

    Very glad I could taste something like this. Taste a 1976 Benriach Kinko 47.4% with passion fruit etc. This was just the same and some extra's like: light coastal elements and some soft smokey peat. THIS IS WHY I LOVE WHISKY! Took a sample home. Going to put it away for some time. This one is going to blow my mind again!
