matured in first class bourbon casks. Wonderfully composed, extremely
fruity – and the gently throbbing mango finish with just a little
bit of wood spices is just sensational. Love it.
Rum raisin ice cream with a pinch of
cinnamon, glacéed apricots, passion fruit, mango, honey, caramel,
roasted almonds, some coconut, a touch of oak wood with high end
vanilla and some beeswax. Very fruity profile, in the background

meadow. Wonderful nose. Considering the age it's a beautifully
playful and nervous whisky with a fantastic balance.
A sweet and fruity whirlwind attacks
the palate with multi vitamin juice, raisins, orange peel and
honeydew melon. In the middle woody flavors join in and provide the
malt with backbone and a nice complexity. Curry, vanilla pod, some
ginger, a bit of cinnamon. In the back of the palate the whisky
changes to sweetness again and develops to a fantastic and vibrant
finale. A delicate waxiness equilibrates the oiliness and provides
It's the malt's strong suit. Breathe in
and out. While breathing out you get complex flavors of mango in
shoves, getting spicier over time: mango syrup, mango sherbet, mango
chutney. In the end the woody undertones of freshly cut mango. A hint
of vanilla and cinnamon. Great.
