  1. Kumachan scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    What a pleasure ! I took full mirettes! PERFECT balance, no defects, all round, never disgusted, superb complexity. A success ! Perfect in digestive or dessert. The Pantheon is reached. If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 92. Top 3 of the best whiskeys tasted so far!
    • Nose
      Golden orange color, many, tight, slow and thin tears. Big hangs. The drop on the palm offers scents of wax, black sugar, Yuzu and candied orange. The nose is masked by alcohol. The whiskey is therefore aerated more than two hours in the glass. The alcohol completely disappeared to give way to old agricultural rum. Sugar cane, bourbon vanilla is very well taken, notes of nutmeg, camphor, candied orange marmalade, raisin, but also nice notes of Yuzu, pineapple and creamy coconut. It is also pastry on the cake with dried fruits, butter and salted caramel.
    • Taste
      Beautiful explosion in the mouth. A tenderness in opposition with the 64 °. First sweet on these notes of vanilla bourbon, then around dried fruits, figs, grapes. Then big rise, mango and passion fruit covers the palate. Wax, honey. Melon, leather and mocha. Retro-olfaction opens the door to coconut, pineapple and caramel. Nutmeg and camphor close the ball.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long on drier notes of cut hay, fern cereals and licorice.
