    Strange whisky with rather unpleasant sour nose on my taste. White wine is easily recognizable but the whisky with a wine smell... weird, isn't it? Interesting to taste but I wouldn't buy a full bottle.
    • Nose
      Sour, white wine, green apples, grapefruit, lemon dessert, hints of honey and melon, sulphury notes
    • Taste
      Spicy, sour apple, lemon zest, vanilla
    • Finish
      Short, dry, nutty

    On the palate and the finish a terrible meaty-soapy touch.

  10. rb854 scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    It isn’t bad, maybe the palate is too light and the finish too short.
    • Nose
      At first sniff there is some leather and chocolate, but that becomes sweet and fruity. Apples, grapefruit, malt, cinnamon, some nutty notes, walnuts and something of butterscotch (“boterbabbelaars”)
    • Taste
      A slight prickle, watery, some spirity notes. Fruity, oranges, grapefruit,, some chocolate and coffee, nutmeg, grapes. It has a hint of white wine.
    • Finish
      Not too long, some woody notes, chocolate, nutmeg. There is a fresh note, gin-like, juniper and at the back there are some fruity notes, apples and peach.
