    Easy drinking stuff that’s quite perfect for a summer evening. Not cheap though (considering we don’t get much information).

    • Nose
      Almost entirely on green bananas. Light floral touches. Apples and gooseberries. Greengages. Not the tropical fruits of the 1991s though, more Western, so perhaps we’re wrong. Or maybe this is Cooley. Some fresh mint after a while. Lemon grass. Very summery indeed, just a little narrow maybe.
    • Taste
      Very fruity again, this time also slightly more tropical. It’s full of grapefruits, melons, bananas and honey. Subtle passion fruit sherbet. Then moving towards green tea and soft oak spices. Cardamom. A little vanilla. Grassy notes towards the end as well.
    • Finish
      Long, greener, with bittersweet touches and grassy notes.

  3. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A deliciously sweet and odoriferous dram. Velvety, smooth and
    extremely quaffable with lovely fruity elements and a creamy sweetness,
    well balanced with the oak of the bourbon cask. Like walking through an
    orchard in summer.

    I thank Dailydram.de for the sample!

    • Nose
      Lovely fruity on the nose with pears, melons, orchard fruit, and ripe
      bananas. Lively and sweet with lemonade, vanilla and a hint of ginger in
      the back. Soft and mellow!
    • Taste
      Silky and sweet on the palate with lively lemonade and a delicate
      fruitiness of pears, ripe bananas and orchard fruits. This is
      complemented by a bold spiciness of oak, pepper and crystallised ginger.
      Very warming with sticky notes of acacia honey towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows good length with a creamy vanilla sweetness and sticky
      orchard fruit. Lovely warming with fine ginger and a whiff of oak on the
      tail.

      WITH WATER: Water brings out more of a darker fruitiness with
      peaches and plums coming to the fore. Sweet vanilla with a subtle
      floral note in the back. Sweet and mellow on the palate with ripe
      bananas and peaches, accompanied by a slightly warming spiciness of oak,
      black pepper and ginger. Becomes slightly dry towards the finish. The
      finish is still long and subtle sweet with more spiced oak. Very dry on
      the tail.
