Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

Nose

Quite a fruity nose, a mixed bag and some earl grey tea, vanilla ice cream, IPA beer, straight off the tap, some kind of new wood, like a box, also their is definitely some sort of confectionery, not sure though.    



Taste

Full bodied and I've decided to drink this straight, swirl it around your tongue and you get some citrus notes, a little bit of lemon, a little bit of lime and definitely some grapefruit, it has that bitterness to it, almost like an Indian tonic water.   



Finish

The finish is bold and strong, with some spice and lemon.      



Comments

This is nice,but is it worth the price tag, no I don't think so, I had a Tobermory 17 which I paid £50 for and it was better than this.

Un Whisky qui ne vaut pas son prix. 

Préférez lui un Highland park 24 ans de Signatory vintage 1000 fois plus intéressant.

Good whisky for sure. But not quite worth the money.



You can get really good bourbon matured whisky for a lot less.


But it is a really elegant dram.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

First impression is light and fruity, tropical fruity, with pineapple leading.Citrusy freshness, and sweet on notes of honey vanilla, maybe a hint of some artificial bubble gum flavour.

Faint and lighter grassy notes in the background.
Quite complex, well ballanced and little indication of the high abv.
Taste
The name. as well as the presentation, the color and the nose may lead to the asumption it is a light and kind of "feminin" dram. Well,it's neither.

Immediate hot hit on the palaette with loads of white pepper, but not in an unpleasant way. It's warming and oily, and you get an instant feeling of a well matured liquid.

Big bold body with developing sweetness, almost on a liqoure level. Rich bourbon vanilla. Fruit comes along midway, still strong on pineapple but also more zesty notes.
Gives impression of a very well composed and "complete" whisky.
Finish

Long, with interesting development. Spice mellows a little, turning on ginger and a rich anis licorice note.

Comments

No doubt there's been some premium quality casks at work here.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Ricola, Menthol pur, feiner Rauch dahinter, Backaromen, Lakritz, Vanille, Heiderauch wie von HP typisch, die Minze bleibt aber am penetrantesten

Taste

Rauch, Moos, Pflaster, Menthol, Lakritz mit Hopfenmalz, Eukalyptus direkt vom Baum, Gemüsegarten, getoastete Eiche, Salz, später was Pfirsich/Kumquat irgendwo identifizierbar als einzige Fruchtnote

Finish

Lang, rauchig, Menthol, Heide, Hopfen bleiben penetrant künstlich im Mund zurück.

Comments

Naja, definitiv interessant aber einer der am künstlichsten wirkenden Hype-Abfüllungen aller Zeiten.
