  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Class whisky. Found the colleagues very tasty.
    • Nose
      Blind Sample:

      Colour:
      Shiny gold

      Nose:
      First come cooked, light fruits. Goes well towards apricots and peaches. With wax, vanilla and sweet honey. This waxy reminds me of Clynelish. The alcohol is very back. The nose after between 40 and 46%. With a little more time in the glass, the colleague becomes spicier. A pinch of chili and an Asian spice scent. Melon joins in addition. I like it.
    • Taste
      Very soft, yet neat spiciness. But no alcohol. Here again the chili. Then neat vanilla. I taste my light tobacco notes. In addition wet wood and light citrus notes. Grapes and again the apricots. Maybe some mirabelles. A light chocolate aroma prevails. In the taste again this beautiful waxy note with some salted caramel.
    • Finish
      Rather long and spicy. Then again the wax and honey. With some orange and chocolate.
