  1. Koning scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This one matured in an exhausted hogshead. The colour is very light, and 15 years of maturation don't show off. Still, it's a very enjoyable dram. It's very fresh and green, perfect for a summer day. The alcohol is perfectly integrated as well.

      Fresh and grassy with pine needles, vanilla custard and malt sugars. It's not far from new make spirit, but also has a more aged dustu/mossy note.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Starts nicely with green fruits like limes and greengages. It's rather oily, with some sage, coriander, rucola (garden rocket) and pepper. Maybe a pinch of salt.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Waves of fresh herbs (sage, dill) and lemon pastilles. It's quite creamy and oily, but a dryness with some surprising cacao lingers.

    [April, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in March, 2015.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no notes.

    Fantastic summer dram, light and fruity, well balanced. Worth every penny. Glad that I have another bottle in spare...
    • Nose
      First you get surprised by a Slivovitz note, followed by very aromatic apricots and almost overripe sweet pears. No oak, no spices, just fruit and sweetness that last for hours in the emptied glass.
    • Taste
      Same fruits as in the nose, with water even more intense. Sweet ginger. Well integrated alcohol. Big arrival, long developement.
    • Finish
      Long and intense with sweet ginger in the foreground.
