  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Especially the nose is awesome; a tropical fruit basket with a lot of pineapple and coconut.
    • Nose
      Lots of tropical fruit; pineapple, lychee and papaya. Coconut. Sweet candy stick.
    • Taste
      Juicy and oily. Pineapple again. Bananas, peaches and apricots. Also oakiness, vanilla and honey. Spices of white pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet. A tad bitterness. Even a bit salt. It'not very Multi-layered, more lemonade-ish.

    Pretty much a fruit bomb, not overly complex but easy drinkable - I like it
    • Nose

      Exotic fruits, pineapple, mango, peaches, overripe apricots, fried sugar banana, sticky honeycomb - great!

    Papaya coconut pineapple and banana why not? Very pleasant

  4. gango4 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Aftertaste pleasant but not intense
    • Nose
      In the nose a stench of an undefined fruit, laziness, modern, bad breath. Alcoholic sharpness (?)
    • Taste
      In the mouth good quality, not clearly definable in the fruit, light.
    • Finish
      Departure rather short for his age.

    A fruit bomb and a very good one at that.

    Well worth looking out for.
    • Nose
      Pear, melon and apple, its a white fruit salad with notes of rose blossom.

      It smells very light and there is now notes of lemon Terry`s All Gold plain chocolate (The miniature barrel one)
    • Taste
      Jesus I was not expecting banana, the nose did certainly not indicate that?

      Its gets creamier and sweeter the more you have and now its more like pineapple than banana.

      Very smooth.
    • Finish
      Medium/long (between the two), smooth and sweet.
