  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    N: glue, fresh almond, some candied oranges, barley.
    B: floral sensation, then pastry spices with a little nutmeg, honey, we find orange and a little mandarin and lemon too
    F: malty, cooked orange with zest, a little cocoa for a feeling of sweetness.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    He is delicious, surprisingly good, mature enough, the cocoa-fruit combo pleases, tasty ... and with 40 € still quite cheap, even more for an exotic. This is a potential permanent candidate for the alien shelf.
    • Nose
      very pleasant, gentle sweetness (cocoa powder, nougat), with tropical-fruity freshness (physalis, blood orange, mango)
    • Taste
      Cocoa / milk chocolate, cinnamon, a little nutmeg - sweet, creamy and tasty ... there is still a green-tart fruity note on the back of the tongue
    • Finish
      medium long, some white pepper, milk chocolate ... and here again something exotic-tart-fruity

  3. Erikouh scored this whisky 83 points Newbie

    Very good and summery, buttery caramel. Quite one-sided, but sometimes it can also be an advantage
    • Nose
      84 84
      Sea, lemon, butterscotch, vanilla. High class
    • Taste
      84 84
      Butter caramel and summer. Mild and never spirited
    • Finish
      80 80
      Not so strange, but it holds up

    Entry level malt from paul john is a good sipper.

    I get wood shavings, citrus fruits, other sour fruits like gooseberries on the nose. There is also some cashew fruit juice.

    The taste is sweet and sour with tropical fruits, fresh wood and this freshly prepared dough note. Finishes with spices. A little ginger and slight bitterness

  8. maltaholic scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    He smells much more pleasant.
    Ripe, full-bodied, aromatic.
    Oak, slightly fruity.

    Tasty rather spicy.
    A nice wood taste.
    He is soft and round.

    I like him...

  10. AdelphosHume scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    It's lemony and spiced with some mixed grain and malt. A little more astringent and oaky than my last bottle. In my opinion, it's not a bad whisky, but not an overly impressive one, either.
    • Nose
      80 80
      Honeysuckle and orange blossoms, dry grains and fresh bread dough, lemon zest and allspice, malt and vanilla pod, and oak.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Honey and tangerines, dark chocolate and malt, slightly under-ripe white and green fruits (pears, guavas, and nectarines), nutmeg and allspice with a touch of vanilla, and salted candied lemon peel.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Bitter dark chocolate, espresso, and sandalwood and oak.
