    If you let air and time work, your nose will develop really splendidly. A real fruit basket. The only problem is that once you take a sip, the shot backfires. The fusel alcohols really burn a hole in the train :(

  6. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Uncomplicated and solid beginner who neither disappoints nor delights ...
    • Nose
      Unripe pear, green apple, light citrus fruit, some honey sweetness and a light alcoholic stinging, clear vanilla after a while in the glass
    • Taste
      Fruity and slightly sweet, a bit alcoholic but quite good drinkable
    • Finish
      Increasingly dry oak spice with decreasing sweetness

  7. Noface83 scored this whisky 80 points Specialist

    Surprisingly delicious with lots of fruit and honey sweetness. but in the finish you should be prepared for a good portion of oak bitterness.

    What is on the bottle as T.notes you can believe this time quietly. ripe fruit - lemon - vanilla - seasoning. Not overwhelmed even a beginner.
    • Nose
      Yes, the nose says, a lot of sweet honey, with lots of nuts and with a splash of citrus, plus some pith from a vanilla pod. A fruity fellow who comes with ripe fruit and some spice from American oak. After cut grass and fresh leather Very complex.
    • Taste
      The same thing continues in the mouth. Like a spicy flavor.
    • Finish
      medium in the end a bit bitter.

  9. vojt466 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Interesting but maybe too sweet ...
    • Nose
      Vanilla, gingerbread, dark fruits - blums / plums, later growing (and dominating) tones of lemons / oranges and wax
    • Taste
      In taste a lot of sweet, to sugar - vanilla, chocolate cake, later harvested oranges / orange peel. There is a bit of a finish in the final but not unpleasant
    • Finish
      In the reverberation of caramel and slightly spices and little bitterness at the end, but nothing that could not survive ..
