    a DD of a not believed A!
    • Nose
      not much besides malt and white fruit
      then vanilla, a little lemon, fresh and cooked apples, banana, malt
      sweet sweet honey
    • Taste
      Pepper all at once!
      More cooked, more "overcooked" fruits, with the caramel that has overheated
      vanilla, wood,
      fine smoke and back a bit bitter
    • Finish
      vanilla and malt
      sweet pepper and sweetness
      a few herbs, late, but a little out of gear on the end!

  4. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Simple but does the job 
    • Nose
      Alcohol prickles on first nosing. Then some deeper notes of citrus comes through, a dustiness in there as well. Still the alcohol prickle persists. With time a smokiness begins to come through, wood / bonfire smoke. 
    • Taste
      Lots of oranges, citrus bursts, little on the sour side. Woody notes coming in, some soft pepper along with some sour oak in there. 
    • Finish
      Light smoke on the finish, burning wood coming through with a little of that sour oranges.

    • Nose
      Fruity, citrus, pear, hint of banana, later the smell is mainly sweet, honey, vanilla. Floral too.
    • Taste
      Light pepper now, sweet: honey, caramel. Also a hint of orange, and even a little bit of smoke.
    • Finish
      Reasonable pepper still, sweet, is now also something wood fire smoke-like in, somewhat bitter undertones too. Show wood.

  9. Thermidor scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A rare bird that goes through quite a metamorphosis with water, from cut apples and Hartwall retro label apple soda to smokiness and salmiak to faint sherry.
