  3. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    From mltbarna waited for more and if the fragrance fully met the expectations, then went down the descending, the taste and finish, in themselves good, to the level of aroma still did not last.
    • Nose
      In the foreground there are floral and citrus notes, lemon zest, flowery honey, lemonade, rhubarb, juicy green grass, lollipops, mineral tones, in the background - dried fruits, carpentry, lacquered notes, processed wood, wooden furniture. The fragrance is open, fresh, spring.
    • Taste
      Lemonade, then a wave of red pepper, then dried fruits with ginger, oak, cream tones, condensed milk, grapefruit and orange peels.
    • Finish
      Woody-dried fruit (dried apricots, raisins) on sweet and sour lemonade background with barely perceptible ginger influence, orange and lemon crusts, burnt sugar, on the whole very short and rapidly dying out.

  4. Toffie76 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Scented and floral. chlorophyll, cologne. Honey, heather, wax. Clean precise and delicate. Vanilla, clove, benzoin, nutmeg, lemon
    • Taste
      The mouth below the nose for me. A little too much bitterness for my taste. Development is a linear nothing and a little short. The attack is the best moment. After, the bitterness 'fragrance' is invasive. A lot of lemon, also and dry aromatic spices
    • Finish
      Fine and persistent bitterness. A little too "alone" only to be nice. Malt goes away too quickly, lacks support

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Not complex, but very well done, balanced, fresh, and nice. It is drunk (almost) like water.
    • Nose
      Citrus in every way. Tart lemon, juicy tangerine, sweet grapefruit. These citrus fruits then calm down to reveal vanilla flower honey. Ginger and liquorice sneak up at times. A fresh nose as a whole.
    • Taste
      I was expecting a very acid mouth, it is not so. Of course, citrus fruits dominate, but they are sweet, juicy, and fresh. A rather monolithic mouth but easy drinkable and very pleasant.
    • Finish
      Citrus peels dry up the mouth, but I do not detect invasive bitterness (which is a good point for me). A little white pepper in the back of the throat, and a pinch of salt in the palate.
