One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 92.03 points.

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    WATER: with a few drops of water, the whisky really blooms, the sweetness in the nose is much intense, even the tropical fruits are much better advantage, it is "greener", so especially the kiwi comes through.

    Conclusion: complex dream substance, especially in the nose. In the finish unfortunately a few tiny weaknesses, otherwise he would have earned even more points.
    • Nose

      closed at first, it takes time to open up. It starts with vanilla and biscuit, then comes many fruits, especially pear compote, passion fruit, mango, kiwi, gooseberry, also some old wood and very discreet leather and quite a bit smoke away. Wax (OBF?), A decent portion of salt with caramel, nice interaction between salt and sweetness

      Wow, very big cinema, first very oily, nice sweetness, then many tropical fruits accompanied by spices (bergamot and cloves), some oak tannins, again the salty caramel, the smoke is here a bit stronger, but underlines the flavors and will never even close to dominant
    • Finish
      88 88
      long and intense, fruits, salt, and tidy wood, maybe a little bit too much, that after a while it gets a bit bitter. There is also some soap here.
