  5. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Delicious and pleasing. Nice sweet and fruity with just the right amount of spices.
    Good all day dram.
    • Nose
      Very cute; a strong citrus note, in this case clearly orange; bright, ripe fruits; Vanilla and honey; light malt note and a well recognizable nut note
    • Taste
      Fruit; Honey and vanilla; the citrus note is clear; spices; a slight touch of oak; behind it the nut, which with time (when holding longer in the mouth) becomes more present and comes to the fore.
    • Finish
      First, citrus and fruit; after that, the oak starts to spread (it also gets drier in the mouth) and at the end it shows the nut, which also gets stuck.
