    It's not the most profound whisky now, but fits in perfectly with the sunny day today. The spring can come ;)
    • Nose
      clearly sourish note, limes, lemon butter biscuit, dry white wine, some green apples, slightly grassy
    • Taste
      surprisingly a delicate sweetness and lemon, reminiscent of a sweet lemon sweet, some fresh wood, a hint of pepper
    • Finish
      here again dry, fresh and fruity, a stronger woody note than in the mouth, rather short and in the end comes a little almond to light

  3. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Well made, yet a little boring. One sure has to like that typical refill-bourbon taste.
    • Nose
      Very expressive citrus fruits. Lemon. Sour fruity. White pepper. Behind that quite some spiciness. Oak becoming more dominant now. Yet hardly any vanilla or caramel. Maybe a hint of sweetness in the back. 
    • Taste
      Pungent start. Initially sweet with some vanilla and caramel now. Orange zest. Spicy oak.
    • Finish
      Short, disappointing finish.

    • Nose
      Citrus fresh, pepper, hmm marzipan yummy, vanilla, has a bit of Christmas cookies (vanilla kipper), the third time smelling I find something hay.
    • Taste
      starts peppery and then becomes very sweet, but also a tart fruit tinge, again vanilla, oak in the background, which becomes more dominant over time,
    • Finish
      pity, very short, almost nonexistent

  5. Noface83 scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    Very nice whisky that knows how to surprise in the mouth with its pungency and bitter spiciness. Great PLV!
    • Nose
      Fresh, grassy, ​​a mixture of light fruits and a tropical fruit mix, slightly sourish note - the whole thing is reminiscent of multivitamin juice, in the background is some vanilla and wood in the aroma
    • Taste
      Sparkling and fruity, spicy yellow curry in multivitamin juice
    • Finish
      Malty and caramel-like go on until then the oak strikes, with the spice and bitterness the beautiful fruit note has only little space. The finish is short but interesting (if you like wood)
