    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=198 Color: straw yellow
    Nose: Thin, slightly unstructured flavor with low spiciness at the beginning. Vanilla, leather, lime, mango and papaya, but all discreet, as well as the accompanying honey sweetness. Subordinated then caramel and wheat bran, fresh white toast with wafer-thin jam. Not bad, just kept pretty decent.
    Taste: Soft, round and too sweet for our taste ! Too much sugar instead of honey sweetness, little fruit (lime and grapefruit), but again a lot of caramel, but again little spice. Tart herbs accompany the taste, and after the sweetness dies down, the peaty smoke first appears.
    Finish: Medium long - spicier and now with leather notes, grapefruit, creamy vanilla and some cream. Fresh mint picks up the finish.
    88 points (nose: 89 / taste: 86 / finish: 88)

    Beautifully balanced tropical fruit and smoke. Wonderful dram. 
    • Nose
      Tropical fruit city: kiwis, passion fruit, like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.  Strawberry tart. A waft of delightfully subtle smoke.
    • Taste
      The fruits remain strong, a little additional grapefruit adds some mild bitterness. Smoked tinned pineapple. Hints of old Bowmore in this. Water brings out some cream - strawberries and cream?
    • Finish
      Medium length, great balance of fruit and lingering smoke.

    There is no photo, it's good and fine; Very well done. Peat is discreet and delicate. I still miss some feelings for this whisky is '' waouw ''.
    • Nose
      Indeed, it is peaty. But it's very far from being the big peat comes in that stains. Here it is fine, chiseled, lemony, light and rather discreet; while still having a certain presence. She gets married with mainly fruits, apricots and pineapples.
    • Taste
      It is fleshy, mellow. Fruit compote is essential. Yet here I find peat almost non-existent. Small spicy tingling on the tongue.
    • Finish
      Long. A fruity dryness settles at his ease. A slight dry, salty smoke passes away.

    I am tempted to call
    this Connemara, but it is so fruity that it might as well be a Bushmills that
    matured on an Islay cask. Who can tell? Whatever the case, it is fantastic and
    rightfully praised. With a price tag of 180 EUR, it is unfortunately not for
    everyone.
    • Nose
      It is indeed peaty,
      but soft. I get more fruit than peat, which is no surprise in this case. It is
      Irish after all. The fruit translates into banana, pineapple and lime. Hints of
      white wine. Some earthy notes as well. Honey, vanilla and a touch of oak suggest
      a bourbon cask.
    • Taste
      It is quite oily on
      the palate. Fresh start on all kinds of tropical fruit. Yes, I also get some
      passion fruit, mandarin and mango on licquorice that results in a drying
      effect. The peat is more pronounced and develops some smoke, but the dram does
      not lose its fresh fruitiness. That freshness is probably also due to a bit of
      mint. Quite nice!
    • Finish
      The finish is
      wonderfully long, warm and spicy, but remains fruity until the death.
