  2. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    very round, but intense. Rarely drink something balanced.
    Great.
    • Nose
      very round, pleasant, orange peel, caramel, pear, vanilla, some sage
    • Taste
      very "smooth", then caramel with orange, the oak spice sets in, very tender tingling on the tongue. Mouth watering. Everything was very round and really time-honored. Very complex.
      Milk chocolate, yes, maybe some sage. a little vanilla. There's nothing scratching, a flatterer.
    • Finish
      very long. It leaves the oak spice with caramel and the sage-orangeate note hanging.
      Out of the throat comes chocolate with the sage.
