    I don't like it much on the nose because of the butterscotch but it is better on the palate

    N: Light. Honey, flower (pink, hibiscus), Mars bar
    B: Attack on smoke (very Yoichi in fact), honey, noble wood, toffee.
    F: Long, saline, some cardboard and tea too.
    C: Too bad it's a little shy on the nose. More interesting in the mouth.

    A nice summer dram

  4. Kumachan scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice, I expected much less, the result is pastry, fruity, fine and elegant but of good amplitude. Do not try to compare it to the fire 10 years. If you had to give it a subjective rating, it would be a 85
    • Nose
      The dress is golden yellow. The nose. A pastry ball: Marzipan, butter croissant and cooked butter. Confit, on the Ume plum, the freshness of the granny apple, depth of the khaki and the spices of the walnut and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      The mouth. A fat and smooth texture, on sherry, cake batter and buttered brioche, white fruit, pear, peach and a little currant. Spices.
    • Finish
      The finish is long on white fruits and cake dough.

  9. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Slightly salty charcoal smoke. A little body. Spicy honey sweetness. The colleague is more on the bright fruit side. These are already a bit more mature. Peach, lychee, some mango. In the background a subtle Essignote. Hazelnut. Has something from tree resin. Some glue. Vanilla is now working its way forward.
    • Taste
      But, spicy, slightly alcoholic start. Some pepper, the subtle salty charcoal smoke, earthy, tart, nutmeg, vanilla, some brown sugar. The bright fruits, only come through the second try. Some sour citrus notes.
    • Finish
      Medium. First something spicy, then sweet proving. Subtle bitter nut flavors.

  10. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A very drinkable copy, rightly had the top notes on WB's 5 today. The pear, the subtle smoke in addition, can do something without age. If he would then me directly worth 70 euros, I dare to doubt without giving anything.
    • Nose
      Leather, slightly charred notes like Holzbrickkets just thrown into the fire, hidden behind a certain tropics, melon, pineapple, papaya, beautiful vanilla, but also a few cranberries, honey, he has something mildly vegetable in a positive sense
    • Taste
      Mango, nicely distant incense sticks, a bit towards HP, but more woodsmoked, a forest clearing just off the Japanese coast, maritime sounds, pear, apple, oak with cinnamon, vanilla and caramel
    • Finish
      Pear, honey and slightly spicy oak remain behind, medium in length and delicious, as sweet, overripe fruit lingers on the tongue
