    This is one of those whiskies that makes the hobby of whisky so much fun. Is it a very good whisky? No, not thát good. But it is totally different, a whole new experience, and that after having tasted over a thousand different whiskies.
    Never before I had a whisky with such a nose... only pure fresh honey, no alcohol or anything else. Really amazing. And then in taste it prooves it is real whisky though.
    I cannot rate this too high for it is not an outspoken good whisky, but still I would advise everyone to try this one if you have a chance. This is benchmarking to the extreme.

      Honey, honey and honey. This is so funny, you really wouldn't believe this is actually whisky. No alcohol or whatsoever, just: honey. Full sweet honey, You almost feel like 'be very careful' for a bee-attack is very likely.

      And once nipping it, it suddenly turns into whisky! Still a lot of sweetness of course, but now some slight tingling mouthfeel, still a bit of honey but mixed with a little pepper, some vanilla-like sweetness, a bit of fruitiness as well.

      Finish got the same tastes as the body, but doesn't stay long.
