  1. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Beautiful fruit notes of green apples and ripe pears. Gooseberries are also available. A thick spoon of honey. Bright chocolate crumble, toffee sweets. The malt makes the nose overall a bright, fruity, airy impression, but also lets through a few flavors of wood. At the back, some alcohol comes to the fore, which then turns off in menthol. The scent of a shower powder with Waldmeister flavor pulls through.
    • Taste
      Dry, not too strong. An estimated 46%. Flourish mouthfeel, dry chocolate crumbs, rolled in honey. Slightly salty. The remains permanently dry, shows a lot of oak and now also herbs. Here comes the wax. But woody, he has a few years under his belt. Salted raisins.
    • Finish
      Medium long and still dry, with oak, raisins, honey and a fine layer of salt.
