  3. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It's very good, very easy to access. The complexity is clearly not at the rendezvous.
    • Nose
      It's a Coffey malt but it looks like a grain.
      Vanilla, wood, coconut. Well round.
      A little apple. Very good but simple.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, the profile is similar to that of the nose. We just have a touch of white pepper that adds to the initial bouquet.
    • Finish
      The finish is peppery, round, vanilla. Long.

    The aroma is thick, sweet: sugar syrup, caramel, burnt sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper, chocolate, fresh foliage, wood, gum, a little perfume (flower soap). With a drop of water is even sweeter (more confectionary, fruit). The taste is sweet, sated: spices (hot pepper, vanilla, cinnamon, nuts), bread, sweet confectionery, sweet fruit with sourness, wood with bitterness. With water more smooth, sweet. The aftertaste is sweet, rich, spicy: spices, toffee, condensed milk, candied fruits, wood. Pleasant, quite long. Conclusion . Very sweet. At first glance it is rough, but at the same time it is rich, sweet and tasty. I like these. Rating: 87 (n22t22f22b21).
