Bottler's notes: "Aroma: Sweet, earthy notes of cream caramel, classic Glenmorangie vanilla and coconut and malt biscuits.
Taste: Soft, silky mouthfeel with dessert notes such as vanilla custard and pears. Delicious pineapple and citrus notes.
A hint of exquisite ginger followed by long-lasting, recurring notes of white chocolate and almond marzipan. "
Yeah, sure. I really tried, but the description is a fairy tale. And for people who are just fans of typical 1st-fill bourbon and virgin oak whiskys, that's nothing. And from treats such as Traditional 100 °, Cellar 13 or Astar from your own home far away.
Vanillekipferl, coconut, shortbread, but rather gentle and cozy, not as intense-crisp, as I know it from some other good 1st-fill-bourbon and virgin-oak whiskys, this clearly green apple and pear - I do not know yet , if I find that good - I did not expect it, it whispers something "I'm very young!"
Mouthfeel first nice and oily, then gets quite spicy, some green apple is back, but rather Hubba-Bubba-artificially, to bitterness, with goodwill one could say cocoa, but just before-just-bitter ... nothing vanilla, nothing Coconut, nothing pastry
short bitter medicine, then warm and spicy, in the end there is some cocoa
