  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Starts fresh, grassy, citrusy and remarkably mineral. Lime and soil and then increasingly orange, lime and flowering heather. Overall surprisingly powerful. Later also oily-oily flavors and yoghurt with passion fruit and peach.
      With water: fruity and zestiger.Wieder yogurt but this time with pineapple, peach and lime. Only later do grass and lime follow.
    • Taste
      Strong onset with sparkling minerality, citrus, oak, lime and pepper. Overall lush and quite tart. Only slowly follow fruity reflexes.
      With water: fruity and fragrant. Oily nuts, grass and oak.
    • Finish
      Grass, buttery aromas, roasted notes but also ripe citrus tones end in a long finish.
