  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose: White pepper! . Here is not so much to get out without water, stimulates the nose properly. Slowly but surely, beautiful bourbon notes are revealed. Reminds me of Clynelish because of the waxy notes. Furthermore, fresh flowers, vanilla is of course also. With water: Everything above it but then also a small valpon smell, which happily went away quickly

    Taste Look that comes in nicely! Delicious vanilla, butterscotch, soft pudding, cream / cream, toffee, and that waxy happen again! Can use a little water, but not much. With water: More vanilla and waxy notes! Absolutely a nice mouth!

    Body: Full and creamy!

    Finish medium-long. Vanilla icecream! Hint of wood, Furthermore, it is vanilla and cream what the clock strikes
