    Superb orange juice ... er ... Miltonduff!
    Simple, but very heartwarming.
    I will only blame him for a small excess of alcohol in the mouth.
    • Nose
      91 91
      We start with very pretty scents of ripe orange.
      Varnished wood, milk chocolate, cloves.
      Rusk, cereal (barley), a little warm bread.
      A little green tea, almost matcha, it's quite surprising!

      With aeration, we have a little exoticism that appears, still more on the citrus register. Kumquat, ripe papaya.
    • Taste
      91 91
      On the palate, we start with a slight woody bitterness.
      Alcohol surprises me, with a little ginger, white pepper.
      Then we go on to orange jam, clementine (Christmas is coming, it seems) and its zest. Gourmet at will.
      Always milk chocolate, with a bouquet of fresh mint and a little Greek sideritis. Very cool !
    • Finish
      92 92
      The finish is quite exotic, with papaya, mango and still a nice dose of orange / clementine.
      To accompany it, chocolate and always mint, and sideritis.
      Light smoke.
      It's fresh, and very easy to drink.

      We keep a herbaceous freshness and orange zest in the mouth for many minutes after finishing the glass.

    This is really spicy in a good way and if you add a few tiny drops of water it releases a nice sweetness, this is good stuff.
    The profile is simple but it works, really expressive taste wise this one.

    Orange marmelade, cloves, cinammon, candied fruits, papaya, sandalwood, varnish, tinned peach, chocolate and pear, very good

  6. SimonOHA scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    It is frankly superb.
    • Nose
      Intense and concentrated nose, little alcohol. Lots of creamy orange and precious woods with a light polish. I also feel an astonishing fresh and vegetal sensation.
    • Taste
      Vanilla, orange and some spices on the palate. A very nice taste of peach too. Very creamy feeling. The alcohol is there perfectly as it should, it is powerful but does not burn.
    • Finish
      On the finish, a very woody, very slightly smoky cereal sensation. Always that nice creamy feeling.

    Color: more or less pale mahogany, golden reflections

    Nose: great! A chocolate pear, magnificent!
    It becomes superb exotic fruits, always with that little pear-chocolate dominance.
    A well integrated alcohol.
    On the nose, the barrel has a good influence on the distillate.
    A citrusy acid side, with slight hints of pepper.

    Mouth: whoua!
    Complex, notes of exotic marmalades on a slice of toasted wholemeal bread. Magnificent !

    Overall: medium on exotic fruit and pepper.

    【First】: Amber which is dark reddish Amber High acidity of oranges from immediately after plug opening never Rose or viscous fruit feeling is not it Kyou raisin raised chocolate Planty feeling, but somewhat uma series ~ dried teriyaki rice It is a wonderful custard with wheat flavor and a good coupling time with sesame time 【Middle】: Body is somewhat roundish time and creamy vanilla smoked like rich tar · phenolic white peach 【Finish】: Even when compared with powerful Moswee, even with comparison with powerful Moswee, from the apricot, strawberry, cherry from Sherry originally feels like there is not much difference, the wheat spicy smoked with a lingering change to creamy is also strengthened In the end, the plant (especially stem sensation) http://www.whiskylink.com/?p=12346
