  2. Kensay scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    promising nose and rather boring continuation, the dominance of wood ruined the overall impression
    • Nose
      Fresh and open, honeycombs, some cinnamon, bananas, citruses and vanilla
    • Taste
      Green lemons and wood, alcohol does not stick out but young wood sticks out strongly
    • Finish
      continuation of taste, green fruits and wood, average duration

    Complex and well matured whisky. I like it.
    • Nose
      Wow! Intense fruity-sweet. First a lot of banana and honey. After the first sip he gets a bit haggard and shows oak. There are also subtle sour notes that remind me of tropical fruits. He remains very fruity throughout. Works on me mature and complex.
    • Taste
      Very fragrant but not overcrowded. Perfectly suitable alcohol strength. Again, I first taste the banana with honey before the tropical fruits come with more acid around the corner. The palate is then surprisingly creamy and slightly creamy. Delicious!
    • Finish
      Medium. Remains aromatic and is only slightly discreetly drier.
