Nose

Pear Drops, Wine Gums, Ripe Strawberries, a slightly spirity nose but not unpleasant. After about 30 minutes and a drop of water - some lemon and still the acid pear drops. Very big and slow legs.

Taste

Acid pear drops. Fresh and sweet with some pepper. Wine Gums. A hint of licquorice and some lemon.

Finish

A dry finish. Lingering acid drops and lemon with a pepper after taste. Most pleasant.

Comments

Bottle just opened. This is a remarkably good whisky. I give it 89. What a beauty. Now on second day.

Nose

A pile of hay in summertime. Fresh fruit like apple, apricot and peach. Vanilla sweetness. Cookies, something quite grainy. I liquorice note in the back. Almost a bit waxy too. Some spice, sharp in the nose. Slightly dusty. 

Taste

Oak on arrival, with a dusty, musty note. Then spice, quite peppery. Vanilla sweetness follows with heavy malt. Drying on the gums, sticks to the mouth. A different sweetness now, maybe gumballs or jellybeans. 

Finish

Really warming going down, nice spice and sweet combinations. Vanilla and pepper, oak and malt. Tongue tingling. Lovely sweetness at the end, where the candy comes back again. Crisp, sweet, delicious. 

Comments

A very good whisky. Light in flavour profile, but really full in taste. The spice and sweetness harmonise very well.
