  5. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This is a rather salty
    grain, something you do not see every day. Around 220 EUR, but not easy to find
    anymore.
    • Nose
      The first whiff is somewhat
      chemical (no surprise), but becomes fruity sweet immediately. Think unripe
      banana and coconut. Add some white chocolate. Vanilla. Touch of oak. Think warm
      wood shavings or freshly sawed planks. Becomes sweeter with time. Very
      pleasant.
    • Taste
      The arrival is slightly
      creamy and spicy. Liquorice and a mild saltiness emerge. Not as sweet as I
      would have expected. The banana trades places with pineapple.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy finish with
      loads of oak and a salty lining.
