    Simple and good, but really not much for a 40yo
    • Nose
      Fresh, malty, citric, honey, dry hay, some green apples and bananas
    • Taste
      Oily, citric, apples amd hay again, little oak wood
    • Finish
      Medium short, little zesty

  3. gango4 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Tasty at a very high level, but harmless, powerless.
    • Nose
      Sweet, light exotic fruits, raspberry pineapple, persimmon, dates and greenwood, no smoke. Hints of honey and caramel.
    • Taste
      Very oily, sweet and soft, very subtle salty note, takes a little until it explodes, then very late seasoning. Not very powerful. Something too soft
    • Finish
      The sweetness is left behind and the oak is subtly replaced by the sweetness.

    Nose: Salty sparkling freshness with sherry and orange notes, rhubarb cake, sticky honey, creamy tropical fruit (mango / papaya), Haribo fruit gum and oak.
    Taste: Soft onset, orange juice, salt, tart leather, now fruit gum without fruit, malty sweetness, then bitter; Resin, notes of glue and paste.
    Finish: Medium length, dry rubber, malt, caramel, salt and wet chamois leather. Remaining residues, but without fruit, bitter almonds and again resin.
    Comment: Did not something tune with this bottle?!? The taste is very disappointing. But even after a second tasting from another bottle the same notes.
    84 points (nose: 91 / taste: 78 / finish: 82)
