    A fine Sherry wrap in the exotic fruit basket. Spicy! I love such young-bubbly things, already equipped with a character!

    Lack of balance in my case. Too sweet for my personal taste. Still, the whisky is rather well done and surprising in terms of the integration of alcohol despite its young age. (sample whiskybase, thanks!)
    • Nose
      first nose very fruity, on banana too mature, exotic fruits candied. A little disgusting from the start. A lot of yeast, too ... Brown sugar, cane sugar, maple syrup. One side not clean., Too much.
    • Taste
      really fruity attack, candied candies. A small spicy passage in the middle of the mouth.
    • Finish
      short, a little bitter. Many fruits, always. The development is quite linear. It's young. With time, I perceive a lot of pear.

    • Nose
      young, fudge - caramel, spices, chocolate - praline, a bit sharp, orange, citrus - lemon, reminds me of the young Tamdhu van Wees - the Ultimate range of the last years
    • Taste
      nuts, oily, spices - pepper, fruits - pear, citrus and wine gums
    • Finish
      medium drying with pepper, orange and coffee

    With a few more years of maturation, this could have turned into a great whisky. Now it's just good.
    Small sample from Whiskybase.
    • Nose
      Orange, caramel, creamy vanilla, Turkish delight and almond.
    • Taste
      Orange, caramel, vanilla, red berries, eucalyptus and a whiffs of smoke and spice. With water it gets creamier with a more prominent role for the caramel, turning into toffee even.
    • Finish
      Toffee, orange, kiwi and almond with a little spice and smoke.

    The kind of sweet and chemical sherry that I do not appreciate, but very good integration of alcohol.
    • Nose
      very expressive, on brown sugar and dried fruit, Christmas cake, orange, I immediately feel that this is not a style that will please me.
    • Taste
      sugar, orange, dried fruits, exotic fruits (papayas? bananas?) but chemical (like small aperitif cubes), caramel, coconut, wood. Alcohol is perfectly integrated, it is quite sweet and very easy to drink with the sweet side.
    • Finish
      medium length, sugar, a little spice now.
