    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet, fruity, light.
      There is a clear sauternes, grape, white wine note to it.
      Although unusual. I've had several other brands with sauternes finish, which have been a lot more caracter defined.
      Some yellow fruit, honey sweetness, very little spice.
      A weird but not unpleasant MDF/chip board note.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Sweet and acidic.
      Arrives soft with a build up of spice.
      Oak and coconut.
      Bolder than I expected from a Sauternes.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Coconut flavour lingers.
      Nutty, sweet.
      Medium+ lenght

  4. Bosi scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    I did not expect this spiciness and spiciness. I rather started from a light summer dram. The corners and edges are not well balanced, therefore, this filling me, if not bad, not completely convincing.
    • Nose
      In conjunction with a strong honey note, the whisky smells a bit musty (which is good). The musty flies unfortunately in favor of Granny Smith, a touch of white wine and marzipan. Unfortunately, there is also a sprightly undertone.
    • Taste
      The taste is also dominated by apple and honey. Add to that a lot of chili and seasoning, nutmeg and milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      The sweetness of dark chocolate dominates the medium-long finish. This is followed by a light acidity and the sharpness decreases, leaving room for some oak.
