    Very nice whisky, very full yet not too hefty. Sweet and fruity.
    • Nose

      Very fruity, pear, apples, some peach. Grassy as well, and sweet, vanilla. Very fresh, hardly any alcohol detectable.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Some pepper, sweet, peach, honey, caramel as well. Full taste, some licorice far away.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still pretty strong, a little pickering. Sweet, honey, peach. Pretty long, more licorice.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Vanilla custard, honey, pear, apple. A little banana and peach, plus a slight grassy touch. Too much water kills the nose.
    • Taste
      Almond, honey, caramel, vanilla and a whiff of smoke. Water adds a little pastry. 
    • Finish
      Honey, vanilla, apple and banana.
