    Nose: Prunes, dried fruits, creamy soft texture, forest berries. Taste. Sweet, Apple. The taste of alcohol.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The nose is beautiful, but the tartness and soap in the mouth and finish is too special for me today.
    • Nose
      Fruity few notes. Still citrus peel, orange, little oak. Sweet wine barrel that leaves the spirit still breathing.
    • Taste
      Tart notes, Campari, wine and something perfumed. More powerful than expected.
    • Finish
      Herb, Campari, oak. Something perfume-like, slightly soapy. Not uncomfortable, but striking.

  4. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice summer whisky
    • Nose
      Orange gold

      The first thing I encounter is sour blood orange. But really nice and clear. Behind it some marzipan and I find my peach. There's a fresh, lively note inside. Smells of such a summer wine cocktail. I'll let it stand…
      With a little time in the glass, the cocktail aromas become clearer. Lime, melon, berries and tonic water. In contrast, some dry wood and a slightly alcoholic tinge.
    • Taste
      Only soft start. Then there is a floral, spicy taste. Some honeydew melon, vanilla and again the blood orange. A hint of dark chocolate and subtle sour cherries. A pleasant alcoholic sharpness revives the whisky and churns up the taste again. The second sip I find the marzipan again. Add a few dashes of lemon and thickened grape juice.
    • Finish
      Medium. Freshly fruity and with a hint of licorice. It ends with a dry, sour lime aroma.

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    It is a very fresh and positive mole, very rich and varied for its age, tidy, well-balanced.
    • Nose
      Fresh, invigorating, flowery-fruity, lemonade, malt and dust in the background, nectarines, red sweet apples, lemon rind, caramel, weak lacquer notes, flower pollen, propolis, pruned grapes, dusty wood, koch-and-nor pencils.
    • Taste
      Sweet-citrus, a wave of lemon pepper, lemonade, triple-sec, very fresh and cheerful, then there is a light oak bitterness, lollipops, candied ginger, orange peel, kumquats.
    • Finish
      Sweet-oak, soft, bark, light grassy bitterness, thyme, orange and grapefruit crusts, confectionery notes - shortcake, jam, sugar icing.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: Orange, sugared almonds, blueberry, caramel, vanilla, lime, apricot and barley.
    T: Roasted almond, orange, caramel, brown sugar, lime, leather and a little mint.
    F: Toffee, roasted almond, orange, blueberry, brown sugar, smoke and nutmeg.
    Seems to be a mix of sherry and bourbon casks.
