    • Nose
      Fresh. Cider, light grapes, limes. Sawdust, a touch of sulfur. Sprite, some mint.
    • Taste
      Green pears, apples, mild pepper. Bright honey. Lime juice, warm mineral water, a bit bland.

  2. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Horny part. I'm glad to have recommended the colleague!
    • Nose
      The first thing that comes to my mind is the fruity pretzel. Great cooked fruit notes of mango and peach. A nice lemon is coming. Fits great to the overall picture. With some time in the glass, the colleague smells something like whipped cream. I did not have that either. But cool...!
    • Taste
      Strong start. First slightly sour lemon with a little salt. This then makes room for a creamy fruit note. There they are again, the cooked fruits. Spices come after. Everything goes great together.
    • Finish
      Medium long and creamy. Some chocolate

  3. Whisky-in-Wiesbaden scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Aroma : Warm fruit cake, slightly iodine, a lot of ripe fruit. Taste : vanilla kipper with fruit compote, then fine milk chocolate paired with very profound maritime nuances (Springbank barrel?). Very round and balanced. A great drop ...... Departure : The vanilla passes slowly but steadily and the warm fruit cake with milk chocolate coating remains behind. Original Notes from Best Dram
