      Mild, exotic. Fruits, coconut milk, cinnamon & light lemon.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Very mild and, in contrast to the smell, not very complex. Nutty with dry fruit.
    • Finish
      78 78
      Relatively long with a slightly peppery heat.

  3. Totoro scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Perfect sipping whisky. Goes from an enticing, fruity and floral initial aroma through a regrettably thin body and somewhat ephemeral development to end up with a surprisingly solid cocoa-slash-coffee-driven, European oak finish that lingers and provides some nice, dark warmth before slowly fading out. Nothing to go nuts over, but perfect in terms of easy entertainment, preferrably on summer nights. The nose especially is a serious treat.

    A slight bitterness runs through the entire tasting, and together with the fantastic spiciness results in a nice one
    Concept. I have rarely had such a tasty whisky in my glass. The only point of criticism is that the alcohol doesn't always seem particularly involved.
    • Nose
      86 86
      spicy oak with a good dose of sherry, nutty, sweet, malt with a hint of caramel and grape-nut chocolate, toasted aromas, vanilla, banana bread, soft smoke with dried rosemary, juicy boskop, apricot and mango, very well balanced
    • Taste
      84 84
      For 40% vol, relatively intense, pronounced spice, oak, a lot of malt, slightly sweet, nutmeg, cocoa, raisins, dates, vanilla, apricot, rum
    • Finish
      83 83
      a lot of malt, dark sherry and raisins, chocolatey cocoa, oak, spicy, dried dates, grassy
