  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This dram is a little too alcohol-driven, resulting in a pickering nose, very pickering body and some hints of bitterness in the finish. Which is a pity, because the other aroma's and flavors are very pleasant, a little less alcoholic would have resulted in at least two points more.

      Fruity, ripe apples, citrus. Floral, wahing powder, pretty some alcohol. Pretty stinging actually. Some yellow fruits, pineapple.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Very powerful, intense, pepper. Sweet and fruity, honey, orange, some blue berry. But a bit too alcohol-driven.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Very strong still, intense, a little bitterness now, and a warming feeling in the belly. Sweet fruits, orange, vanilla, some hint of berries, 'Xenos-association', pretty long finish.

    Tasting notes from Slijterij Vonk: Nose: Roasted red apple with a touch of sweet vanilla and coconut cream Taste: Caramelized orchard fruit with vanilla notes. Sharp, sweet, spicy oak combined with golden syrup and barley in a long, lively aftertaste.
