  1. whiskeen did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Serge Valentin from Whiskyfun.com:Colour: pale gold.
    Nose: powerful and rather more on the grassy/floral side at first nosing. There`s also more clear lemon and green apples, which makes it all very `responsive`, so to speak. It`s even quite mineral, kind of chalky on the nose, in a good way. With water: some pleasant sour notes, cider, beer, apple juice... A little fresh sawdust and vanilla too, as well as even more `yellow` flowers.
    Mouth (neat): absolutely excellent, with a fruitiness that I find typically Aberlour/Longmorn/Strathisla, in a way. I hope that makes sense! So rather western orchard fruits, apples, plums, pears, yellow berries (gooseberries and such)... All that with drops of liquid wax. Oily mouth
    feel. With water: became even fruitier. Some barley water.
    Finish: medium length, on the same notes. Even more apple juice, maybe?
    Comments: state of the art very moderately oaked fruity spirit. Extremely quaffable. SGP:641 - 88 points.
