      Mandarin, pear, malty, honey, Granny Smith, hay, pafrum, crème bruleé, pineapple juice, apple compote, hazelnuts and wet wood. Later, the scents come as raisins, overripe banana, squeezed cigarette butts and wine or sherry notes.

      Granny Smith, pepper, vanilla, creme brulee, wood, hay, raisins, ginger, malty, pear, pineapple, passion fruit, and mandarin.
    • Finish

      Actually not much difference than with the taste, only the tart sour taste, alternating with sweet / honey-bitter notes forms the finish.

  2. Noface83 scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    Give away a lot of potential. The nose is fantastic with tropical fruits, lemon, marzipan, light sherry and pleasant spicy oak. In the taste and Angang but then young, alcoholic and "bad" oak. The nice things like the fruit compote, sweet sherry and some herbs are still there but the negative notes can not be hidden.

  9. Snerik scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    The nose is a lot more expressive and engaging than the actual taste. But still a nice dram. 
    • Nose
      Some cacao, honey, cookie dough, raisins. Some hints of good quality tobacco. Pleasant. 
    • Taste
      Some cacao bitters (lovely), dates, tobacco and some smoke. It’s a really sherried whisky this one. 
    • Finish
      Honey, that bitter cacao note and bitter oranges.
