praisethepasta gave this whisky 89 points

This was love at first dram and it quickly became one of my favorite sub € 100 whiskies. As my last bottle is nearing empty, I'm on the look out for a replacement while they're still around. They are being discontinued in 2017-2018, sadly...

Nose

An intriguing combination of salty tones, stewed apples and melon. After adding water the salty notes dominate some more, but I picked up  lovely elements  of apple cake, almonds, walnut and hazelnuts. Very promising

Taste

In the arrival the nose continues, with some nut oil joining the party. A party that only just starts after adding  water (and another 15 - 20 minutes of your patience): such a rich, well balanced combo of taste and flavours while at the same time being delicate in the way it presents itself. Everything just starts to blossom now. The balance between the salty and sweet notes is accompanied by some marzipan and almonds, all coated in a velvety texture which dances in your mouth.

Finish

medium long, a bit sticky with licorice (the chewing wood kind). With water it becomes less sticky but it lasts longer, with some oily notes (nut oil and a bit syrupy).

Comments

A beautiful, soft and a bit delicate whisky that needs just a bit of water to reach its full potential, resulting in a great harmonious balance of flavours. 89 -90 points

Excellent whisky, even better for this price. For me it is a bit too sweet, but still I do love it.

Nose

sweet & sour strawberries, little bit coastal/salt, herbs, light flower honey, little bit of grappa

Taste

In your mouth and when you swallow: honey, banana, pineapple/peach mix, floral, bit coastal. After swallowing the salty side grows with the sweetness hanging in.

Finish

sweetness fading away before the salt.

Comments

I prefer the nose to the taste, where I wish the salty side was a little more in the background.
