    after the first sip, i had to put aside the rest of the sample
    for quite some time.. a very well-defined, muscular-, imposing whisky!

      Citrus, camphor, grass, spices, honey and pine resin.

      Creamy. Peat, salted caramel, orange peel, prune, honey and cocoa.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet, dry.

  10. Malinois scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Technical well build.

    Good build whisky: salted lemon with smoke and some cloves? The tast is best with a few drops of water: first a big salt attack with lemons whereas the salt tames down and the lemon and smoke can play. The finish is very very long, first very salty which goes quick away and makes room for smokey lemons. The taste of lemony smoke keeps up all night long!

    No complex dram, just a very good build whisky!
