    Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1318
    • Nose
      Very generous on the caramel. Malta.
    • Taste
      Caramelized and juicy, not ultra-complex. Pleasure and intensity! Rich.

      fresh fruit, pear, apple, citrus, bit coastle/salty, grappa. with water; sweeter, a bit floral herbal.
    • Taste
      vanilla, sweet lemon, mixed spices. with water; sweeter, the development is longer
    • Finish
      salty, oak, a bit bitter

  3. Wtrstrnghlt did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: a whole lot of vanilla and toffee, but surprisingly for me its not to much this time.

    Some herbs, sage. with some water, less vanilla, more herbs. Grapefruit.

    Taste: Soft arrival, but gets spicy. Sweet. With water, sweeter, more pepers, but also creamier.

    Finish: Herbs, peppers, and sage. middle long

    This dram is better with a drop of water

  9. ThS scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Artisan yogurt, tangy, fresh, titillating. Strawberry, lemon, as in spray on it. The palate is fat, tart, greedy and light. Final more warm, round, easy to drink. Nice, but a bit simple.

  10. Torfding scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The alcohol is well integrated, barely noticeable
    • Nose
      Notes of lime and lemon (similar to dishwashing liquid, artificially effective, but with a slightly better effect), bubble gum, caramel, various fruits (peach), vanilla, rum, a bit salty; looks fresh, I think of dense morning mist on dry and green grass
    • Taste
      peppery, old (but not overripe) banana, yellow apples, citrus fruits, wood
    • Finish
      short and refreshing, spicy, fruity
