    Very well
    • Nose

    • Taste
      Medium sweet, medium bitter and light salty in good
    • Finish
      Long and balanced bitter and sweet with notes of juniper, heather and malt syrup. A bit acidic.

  4. cuhp scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Mediocre dram. If the complexity from the nose had continued in the taste/finish, this could have been a killer dram!
    • Nose
      Sherry mixed with licorice, light peat, mint and orange peel. Quite entertaining.
    • Taste
      The taste is more salty and unfortunately not as fun as the nose.
    • Finish
      Bitter as a consequence of too much oak influence.
