  2. Achany scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    sweet, some honey, some hints of sherry. traces of malty cereals and it shows that there is complexity. a lot of oak, bitter, the bitterness takes over and at the end there is not more sweetness around. finish is short to medium long and rather bitter as well.

    N-
    Pleasantly complex, burst of creme caramel at first, then banana and starfruit drift by with dark fruits quick to
    follow and add to the depth. Hints of metallic and cool steel.

    P- Much spicy with more wood coming through, sweet caramel coated thin coffee. Hint of bitter-gourd at the tail. F- Long and smooth, light texture but hold up the rich flavours well. A
    return of honey fragrant with spicy pepper, curious vegetal of
    bitter-gourd appeared again at the end. Best in their core range.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    The nose is very good, I could smell forever. It is pleasantly complex, round and full-bodied and very harmonious, although the finish could have been a bit longer.
    • Nose
      very clear floral notes, hay, candied nuts, very pleasant sweetness and mild, the oak is beautifully integrated and holds back a bit; pickled cherries and chocolate complete the impression
    • Taste
      The oak and vanilla dominate at the beginning, then the floral notes come back to the fore as well as a fruity sweetness. The cherries and chocolate are also found and complemented by honey.
    • Finish
      A slight bitterness of oak completes the impression and you can still recognize notes of dark chocolate and cocoa.
      The finish is medium long.
