  1. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Like opening a basket of white fruits. Grapes. Apples. Pears...lots of pears. Not so much wood/cask going on. The fruits are refreshing though. An honest whisky. Good for summer nights.

    • Nose
      Surprisingly dense, oily and citrusy. Is getting fruity after candied lemon, lemon drops and Swiss water pear. In addition, some grass. Behind it come malty aromas, roasted oak and white currants and gooseberry.
      With water: balsam, tiger balm, lemon and bourbon sweetness. Later also currants, white peaches and melting pears.
    • Taste
      oily citrus tones, lemon cake, grass, oak, white pepper and again Swiss water pear and maybe spoon biscuit.
      With water: oily, a lot of lemon, malty heaviness and balsam-like spiciness.
    • Finish
      long, grassy, lemony and very fresh. Later also roasted malt and very much after cooked pears.

    • Taste
      Most elegant pear i had so far, with wild honey
    • Finish
      Hint of nuts very well done.

    Wonderful, fresh pear, elegant and sweet opening,little bit of wild-honey,finishes with a hint of nuts flavour.

     Wins a lot with a minimal addition of water.
