    • Nose
      85 85
      The nose is dominated by banana, with malt and oatmeal cookies, vanilla and floral, slightly perfumed notes. Gradually, other light fruits are added, but they remain in the background
    • Taste
      80 80
      Vanilla, and light, slightly sour fruits, even the perfumed is to be found again
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium long, initially sour-dry-fresh, then puts a gentle touch of sweetness about it. Vanilla predominates here, paired with a little light fruit

    The bottle is indeed an eye-catcher; I also had her in my hand and I can confirm that she feels what she looks like.
    But as you know, it depends on the inner values. And there it hapert then a little bit. Good, far from bad whisky, depending on what you mean by it. But nothing to have, and above all, not worth the money.
    In the smell I think somehow of banana cake with peanuts, of course, vanilla, light bright fruits, a touch of sweetness. There is nothing special about the taste, it tingles in the mouth, again light fruits with a touch of a touch of milk, after a few moments the sweetness comes out; in the cheeks it tastes a little better. Short to medium finish.
    Well then, checked.

    N- A child's dream dessert, banana splits with huge scoops of vanilla ice cream with abundance of white raisin, crushed roasted chestnut, violet, passionfruit and cola mix syrup, chocolate bites and chilled coco/coconut milk. (87/21)

    P- Basketful of tropical fruits, vanilla cream harmonized with bitter chocolate, soft oak phenol, floral and white fruit liquorice, rounded with passionfruit and juicy rose apple. (87/21)

    F- Medium, waxy rose apple strudel, raisin with passionfruit vanilla cream. Charming, naive, playful and enticing. (87/21)

    B/B- 88/22, very basic and simple flavours but well composed dram that take me down the memory lane when we were easily overjoyed by a simple treat.

    Cereal- 2, Fruity- 3, Floral- 2, Peaty- 0, Feinty- 1, Sulphury- 1, Woody- 2, Winery- 1, Spicy- 1

    Weighted Rate- 85pt

    Tried a number of early bottlings and wasn't impressed, whereas this one slipped down very nicely. Very enjoyable.

  6. regislefrancois scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    too expensive
    • Nose
      very complex nose
    • Taste
      a paradoxical linear, with respect to the olfactory complexity. the almond predominates
    • Finish
      nice length in the mouth

  7. malthead-sven scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    I bet on a German whisky, 40% and a maximum of 6 years.
    Unfortunately, I'm not convinced at all, there are a few points for the aroma that improves over time
    • Nose
      - BLIND TASTING -
      artificially fruity like cheap wine gum-apple rings, lemon buttermilk, vanilla and some gin, then it beats to really sour wine gum, later it catches up and becomes creamier and buttrich
    • Taste
      thin, alcoholic and sour again
    • Finish
      almost no oak is present, except for the alcohol note is not much

  8. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, Bourbon scent with vanilla! and floral scents.
    In the mouth, after vanilla (and cumin?), Soft exotic fruits arrive, then a little bit of spices and ovomalt grain!
    In the finish, vanilla always and fruit of brandy a little macerated!

    A good simple dram, fruity, fresh.
