    • Nose
      Quite fruity at first, yellow apples and tropical fruits like pineapples, kiwis and then it goes towards vanilla. Caramel fudge. Later also a hint of icing sugar. Water makes it less fruity so it seems. Bringing out pastry.
    • Taste
      Very drinkable at 58% ABV actually. Vanilla. Milk chocolate followed by a hint of lemons. And a little bitterness from pink grapefruit. Somewhat peppery and menthol in the background. With water: everything is still there but with more vanilla and grapefruit and somewhat creamier.
    • Finish
      Mid-long, mostly with vanilla and a hint of kiwi. Somewhat oaky. Caramel toffee in the end.

    A beautiful whisky with a steady delivery, you got on the palate whats expected from the nose and it is keeping the profile through out the finish.

    (Rating interval 85-88)
    • Nose
      Vanilla and caramel on the nose, creme brûlée, citrus and marshmallows. 
    • Taste
      It's warm and coats the palate with an oily texture. Sweet-bitter. steady delivery with vanilla, custard and lemon rind. Water bring some more sweetness but there is still fresh lemon rind adding bitterness to the profile. Also hints of table salt comes through with water.
    • Finish
      The finish goes from sweet-bitter to bitter-sweet with aromatic oak, wood spice and vanilla sugar. Water brings some more oak in the finish.
