    On the nose, it is sweet, creamy, vanilla, a little floral, woody and lemony! The creamy pastry side comes out even more after aeration! a sweet!
    • Nose
      the fruits are quite varied, but very fragrant and combine with the vanilla, the glue "old", the nucleus.

    Enthusiasm: Nose and mouth 4/5 Final 5/5 Whisky n ° 1573
    • Nose
      Woody and exotic fruits. Toffee and vanilla. It's fresh . With water, it evokes cream, honey and syrup.
    • Taste
      We find these aromas in the mouth with a beautiful fluid texture and lots of spices. Slightly bitter at the seams, but nothing troublesome, quite the opposite. With a little water, it is even more dynamic.
    • Finish
      Final that burst with force on exotic fruits, even more supported with water!

    Usually I'm not about grassy whiskies but this is a very interesting combination of very different flavours and balanced sweetness - pretty good
    • Nose
      Intense, green fruits, leafy, grassy, peaty, earthy, cigars, sea breeze - somehow dirty but not bad
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, farmy, salty, maritime, still greenish and vegetables, subtle sweetness, hints of honey, spices - good
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, more punchy, zesty, spicy

    It is very greedy, between fruit and pastry.
    • Nose
      Fruity, floral, new fruit ... with quite different fruit families: white-fleshed fruit (apple, pear), peach (?), A red fruit background. After aeration, it deploys another palette of flavors, more pastry this time: almond paste, sweet vanilla, caramel, cinnamon ...
    • Taste
      A lively attack that crackles pleasantly on the tip of the tongue, it is lively and round at the same time, always on the fruit.
    • Finish
      A beautiful woody bitterness supports the whole and makes the sip last for appreciable time.
