  1. Jonathan Kleß scored this whisky 91 points Member Senior

    From a miniature, I assume 1980s, no further information.

    Intriguing nose and an emphatically fruity palate. Beautiful freshness for the age.
    • Nose
      Medium, starting off mineral and earthy. Wet limestone, fern, moss... Old varnish. A fresh, herbal side with orange mint and lemon balm, heather.
      Also quite some underlying sweetness: pine honey, dried figs, apple jelly and strawberries. Eucalpytus and a touch of camphor. Candle wax. A little bit of sooty smoke.
      Black cardamom and mustard seeds. Quite complex.
    • Taste
      Big, waxy, juicy. Now with tons of citrus fruits, sweet honey, chocolate fudge and the same herbal background. Black pepper. Cointreau, mead and calvados.
    • Finish
      Long and mineralic. Orange zest. Apple skins. Crushed walnuts and nutmeg. Linseed oil. One slice of cantaloupe.

    Needs a little time to breathe.
    This one has the closest Chamomile tea note on the finish I've ever tasted.
    Nothing spectacular, but interesting.
    Too much water will hurt it.
