  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very entertaining whisky - smooth immersion from herbs and citrus fruits through minerality and oak to industrial depths; quite deeply and comprehensively, an interesting composition.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, old wood, dried hay, candy-citrus notes, tangerine, kumquat; some sharp mineral notes - stone chips, whetstone; light animal tones, wool; some butter; fried vegetables; textile.
    • Taste
      Thick, oily, oak, caramel sweetness, mineral-metallic notes, industrial shades - textiles, metal shavings, metalwork, oiled tools, welding spray; old leather goods.
    • Finish
      Soft, calm, oak, oily industrial notes, light metallic acidity, creamy shades - fondant, boiled condensed milk; mandarin peels.

  2. Whisky_Addicted scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Color: lemonade.
    Nose: vanilla, green grass, linden honey, freshly sawn wood, propolis, a little homemade sunflower oil, ripe flat peaches, fresh dried apricots.
    Propolis comes to the fore with water.
    Taste: fresh, green grass, wood, lemongrass, vanilla.
    Finish: medium, medicinal herbs, tree bark, tablet bitterness, apple seed.
    Conclusion: I really liked this whisky. Everything is much more balanced, nothing sticks out. This is probably the effect of being in the bottle for a long time.
