    I thought this whisky was younger. It tastes young, fresh, fruity and sweet to me. Nothing special though. A bit of a disappointment.

    Blind tasting of a sample from Kay Meertens.
    • Nose
      Light, green fruit, pear, young malty, bourbon sweetness
    • Taste
      Light, almost sparkling, pear, apples, malty, minty
    • Finish
      Short, medium dry, warm

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Thirst-quenching and spicy at the same time.

      A fruit juice with apple, pear and peach (Dubbel Frisss). Vanilla, honey and straw. A slight maltiness.
    • Taste
      Pear, apple, peach, fig, malt, honey, smoke and a tang of chilli pepper.
    • Finish
      Apple, pear, vanilla, chilli pepper, banana and a little mint.
