  3. Ing Tretti scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity, punchy at first, but also very young. Rhubarb, pears, yoghurt, barley, muscovado sugar, sawdust. No different aromatic layers and not very complex at all.
      Water brings out more fruits with a soapy touch and macadamia nuts.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sharp and alcoholic at first, with a short interval of yellow fruits, it quickly turns bitter on the palate.
      Water flattens the dram.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Relatively short, with oaky bitterness and a hint of pears.
      Water has no effect on the finish.

  4. HammerHead scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    A bottling with quite a decent nose but lacking development in taste and finish; the latter being flat and very dry.
    • Nose
      83 83
      A slight chemical glue like sweetness, floral, lots of peach, pineapple, mint, vanilla, honey and cookie dough. Does not take a lot of water as it mainly flattens the experience.
    • Taste
      79 79
      Peach, vanilla, mild bitterness and quite some white pepper. The water balance is tricky with this whisky, add some drops to subdue the peppery alcohol nip in the taste but not too much as it flattens out the nose.
    • Finish
      72 72
      Medium length due to a lingering bitterness: a little fruitiness but mostly dry and very bitter; way too one dimensional.

  5. andre8x8 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Pretty flat, sweet, vanilla, green fruit

    Taste:
    Sharp, bitter, greasy, in the background the sweet vanilla comes through

    Finish:
    Pretty short, bitter and drying, some metallic, wood and very far from vanilla

  6. Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Prima CS whisky van 10yo
    • Nose
      Kijk dat is lekker. Zoetig, perzik/nectarine. Een beetje aan de siroop kant qua smaak. Verder kandij en wat karamel. In de achtergrond zit ook een zuurtje wat ik eerlijk gezegd geen naam kan geven, als iemand het herkend, hoor ik het graag!
    • Taste
      Lekker zoet, afgelost door een prettig zuurtje. Hier zit inderdaad wat marsepein in en wat appel. Maar ook een zoetje en karamel zijn hier weer te vinden.
    • Finish
      Medium lengte. Zoet, duidelijk bourbonvat invloeden. Je proeft duidelijk de vanille, room en karamel wat karakteristiek is voor een goed ex-bourbon vat.
