    • Nose
      alcohol and aeration will not change anything. A little fruit, some spices including vanilla. The addition of water softens a little but does not develop the aromas
    • Taste
      alcoholic too. Asutère, few things, a little fruit, a little new make
    • Finish
      very long, slightly citric

    not complex, but without mistakes, can come as a good standard whisky, has almost overcome his youth. This NAS works on a rock-solid level, but does not only express its cheerfulness with the turquoise-colored bottle.
    My bottle: P / 132011 13/286, bottled Dec 10, 2013; Barcode: 5055807400312.
    • Nose
      Malt, figs, raisins, very light mint, some gum (but not at all disturbing), vanilla
    • Taste
      Wood, gentle herbs, vanilla
    • Finish
      Gum opens, but at the same time the fruit notes open, the alcohol warms the heart
