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

    This is a young, striking and boisterous Speyside single malt. A
    massive attack to one's taste buds. Only little cask influence with a
    powerful distillery character. Nonetheless enjoyable neat. The filigree
    fruitiness and vanilla sweetness bravely defy the massive load of
    alcohol and spiciness.

    I thank Caminneci - Wine & Spirit Partner for the sample!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with a gentle vanilla sweetness, followed by a
      restrained fruitiness of apricots and lemons. The alcohol is
      overpowering but not pungent. Behind that overripe fruity flavours
      emerge, mainly melons, accompanied by notes of freshly baked bread,
      ginger and a hint of oak in the back.
    • Taste
      Bold and intense on the palate. Sweet vanilla, ripe melons and apricots,
      complemented by a very warming alcoholic bite. Spiced oak, black pepper
      and caramelised ginger emerge, followed by subtle tobacco leaves
      (rather the green ones) and a metallic note towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish shows medium length. Still very warm with tender creamy
      sweetness of vanilla and melons. Becomes dry and subtle bitter on the
      tail with green tobacco leaves and spiced oak.

      WITH WATER: Water
      tames a bit of the alcoholic bite. The fruitiness is pushed in the back
      while spices and slightly bitter notes of grape peel come to the fore.
      Also significantly tamed on the palate leaving enough space for a
      delicate vanilla sweetness. However, bitter notes of grape peel,
      grapefruit and lemon also arrive. Still warming spiciness of oak,
      pepper, nutmeg and ginger. The finish is a bit shorter, less sweet but
      warm and very dry with oak on the tail.
