    • Nose
      86 86
      Butter / cake Sweet notes fill my nose at first. Flowery notes such as rose petals join in until apple and citrus notes get out of hand.
    • Taste
      83 83
      A little sharpness before the fruit notes appear
    • Finish
      83 83
      The finish is rather short but here I notice the Amontillado barrel most with its nutty notes.

    Fresh and light, nose is the best part, body a little thin, in the finish it recovers a little.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fresh and fruity, oranges, lemon, floral notes and some raspberry. Hardly any alcohol in the nose, vanilla, and some candy-like sweetness.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Light and pretty smooth, only a little pepper. Sweet, fresh, honey, vanilla, orange. A bit thin mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Still a little pepper remains, sweet and fruity, oranges, peach, vanilla and honey. Middle long.

    As already mentioned a good whisky ...
    • Nose
      82 82
      Sherry and honey sweetness in the beginning, some vanilla and wood, also a share of herbs is noticeable
    • Taste
      85 85
      Fruit sweetness and a little spiciness are tastable, a trace of caramel, a nice strong whisky
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium to long, peel in the finish and finally a sweet that stays in the mouth long

    Good whisky, you can definitely try. Another variant that you do not know from Glenmorangie. Very beautiful and medium-long finish.

    (Lot 60135, bottled 15.01.2015) Tasted 6 April 2016:

    Appearance: Light amber / light tea colour.

    Nose: Not very pungent, rounded, butter caramel (but still rather dry), wood, spices, some fruitcake. Even just a few drops of water seem to literally water down the nose of this whisky.

    Taste: Fruity, a bit spicy, initially quite dry. Fruitcake, wood tannins. Not very complex. Sweetness arriving in the finish, which is long. With a few drops of water it retains and even increases its wood spiciness and the finish seems less sweet.

    Overall: Nose and finish are its best features. Add no (or very, very little) water to this one. Overpriced.
