  1. Ingwaz did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Notes from blind tasting.
    It tastes really good to me (I would almost say even better than the 12yo OA).

    Beginning of 2018 still available for 44 € in neighboring countries. He is definitely worth this price.
    • Nose
      very pleasant and balanced, baked banana with some honey
    • Taste
      Sweet, intense forest honey and a little less banana, later becomes something like honey gingerbread
    • Finish
      fine dry, roasted hazelnut

  2. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    That was the brightest (undyed) whisky I've ever had and unfortunately it is also pale in taste. I would have appreciated him significantly younger than 10 years.
    • Nose
      Obstler, straw and a fairly clear alcohol note in the first nose, lots of lemon, lime, mint, it is more caramel in the direction of toffee, subtle vanilla, green apple, otherwise not much
    • Taste
      Alcohol, slightly pungent, noticeable oak, lemon again, Obstler, less caramel, creamy mouthfeel towards the end
    • Finish
      Oak spice, subtle hint of chocolate, rather short, buttery

  3. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Unfortunately for 13 years, he has not really got anything to offer, but he does not taste bad, rather boring
    • Nose
      Vanilla, lemon and light apples, caramel and toffee, with some spice and oak, the alcohol is clearly felt despite the "only" 43%.
    • Taste
      rather shallow and superficial, a bit of lemon and butter biscuits, oak and everything but well dosed, nothing stands out
    • Finish
      rather short, unfortunately again without any major abnormalities, a little lemon and vanilla, but nothing more
