    A whisky that you can give some time for better yield of flavors. PLV is correct. I'm definitely positively surprised.
    • Nose
      immediately a lot of vanilla with cooling alcohol, behind oak and some caramel, slightly sweet to citrus, subtle smoky, wet leather and Nussigkeit in between clearly the bottom ten, wet slate, marzipan, a touch of yeast, later fresher and flowery with hay, honey Peach juice, gooseberry and physalis, floury apple, strong Galia melon, light nutmeg, malt
    • Taste
      Honey sweetness, slightly spicy nutmeg, slightly spiced barley malt, mineral notes with a fine sparkling acidity, vanilla, grapefruit, walnut oil, old oak barrel, distant aromas of salt, sweet sticky orange syrup with dark chocolate, hints of tobacco, creamy
    • Finish
      Spicy with hints of pepper, warming, rather dry, some malt, soft toffee, oak, hay, light chocolate bitterness, slate, minimal smoke, buttery, walnut shells

    After years still my reference single malt for rating other whisky's.
    • Nose
      Lots of flowery notes. Elderflower. Heather and hay. Fresh fruits (melon and pear). Also apple juice. A touch of marzipan. A little honey as well.
    • Taste
      Malty and fruity at the same time. Banana and coconut. Vanilla. Candy-floss. Quite chewy actually.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dryness. Soft spices of pepper and nutmeg. Gingery. Liquoirce at the end.
