  1. whiskynews scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This was a 100ml sample from my SMWS Welcome Pack. It was the second tasting after it was already open for some time.
    • Nose
      malty, touch of glue, herbs, after a while some fruits coming through, with water more fruits, mango
    • Taste
      oily creamy mouthfeel, little bubblegum, tropical fruits
    • Finish
      medium long at first, longer later on, some physalis notes

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Sunrise gold

    Flavour profile: Spicy & sweet

    We were served a soup of herbs and greens, sorrel, arugula
    and nettles with a handful of parsley and watercress topped with a generous
    dollop of crème fraiche. To drink we had fresh coconut water as well as
    sparkling mint lemonade. The initial taste was surprisingly hot; maybe some
    fresh hot green chillies somewhere in the soup and the beverage now a mulled
    white wine. Water released ripe apples, possibly in the Glühwein with cinnamon,
    cardamom pods and cloves. Much more approachable on the palate now, sweet and
    fruity like fine Belgian soft fruit nougat with sliced pieces of glace
    pineapple.

    Drinking tips: Before and/or after a meal
