  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: Distinctly smoky (Yoichi), sweet, reminiscent of underground tunnels and cellars, subtle adhesive notes, candied apples, peanut butter and honey. Exotic wood, fir green, the smoke integrates better and better. Waxy notes, honey, raisins and cake dough, all very appetizing and delicious, the alcohol in optimal concentration!

    Mouth: The smoke is even more intense, as it had suggested the aroma is at the beginning a bit outside, but integrates quickly very nicely. Sweet, earthy, honey, quite elegant, with fine wood, some wood polish and beautiful elegance. With time drier, although on the whole he is on the sweet side, then cocoa, coconut and mocha chocolate.

    Finish: Pretty long, ashen, phenolic, heathen and again with a certain sweetness.

    Conclusion: A very nice malt, which has fascinated me especially in the nose. The start might have been a bit more intense, but that is complaining at a high level!
