    I'm typing on a Speysider at 10, 43%. I'm not likely to remember that for long
    • Nose
      - BLIND TASTING -

      fresh summer fruit, apples and pears, vanilla quark, vanilla milkshake, but also some windscreen wiping water, this turns into citrus notes, later still slightly butter biscuits
    • Taste
      some honey, cereals, balanced starch and getting drier over time
    • Finish
      rather short, subtle sweetness, without bitterness but with a little almond

    • Nose
      Vanilla, sweetness, honey, slightly leathery and maritime notes, minimal herbs

      Sweet, vanilla, honey and interwoven fruitiness, more light than red fruits, possibly apricot

  9. Ivynor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Please stop these NAS without any charisma. The bottle is very pretty, but the content is really too young.
    • Nose
      Caramel, a little heavy. Iodized background and green apple in large quantities. made very young. Inconvenient blend of sherry and bourbon
    • Taste
      Quite sweet, a little creamy, fruity, fresh, on candy sugar, green apple, iodized touch, and some dried fruits and wood. Alcoholic background, alcohol is moderately integrated
    • Finish
      Short. Wood, apple.
