Nose

Oh, this is nice! Flowers everywhere - I'm imagining The Sound Of Music in my head now! Some cinnamon, grassy notes as well, everything accompanied with a layer of vanilla beeswax. 

Taste

This is the good stuff. Clean and crisp yet full of flavors: vanilla beeswax sweetness with floral floralness (is that a word? Well, you get the idea). Faint touch of wood. 

Finish

Peppery spiciness kicking in, later on converting to sweet floral tones with some grassiness. 

Comments

Very nice stuff. Nuff said. Tasted on 13/11/2016 in a Japanese line-up (WB ID's 70236, 5443, 9252, 38412, 6016, 71248 and 20342, in that order).

Nose

First nose provides fine sourness, sour-sweet fruit - white apple like, apple juice, citron, juicy kiwi pulp, it is fresh, woodsy slightly, wood chips?, with hints of cut grass, mint leaf, eucalyptus and muskmelon.

Basically this is very summery indeed, warm, yet clear and delicate enough, with touches of field flowers, daisies, pollen/honeyed, anise, rosin, sleek (vanillic) wood, cashew, hazelnut. And after that: candied fruit jelly, gelatine, glucose, 

Taste

A trifle sweet beginning alters promptly by herbal bitterness of fern, leafage, bay leaf, licorice root and menthol - cool, fresh.

Mid palate: chamomile tea, broth?, herb tea, wild (mānuka?) honey, a tad earthy, salty even.

Medium bodied, oily. Being moderate on the palate, it's got a nice balance indeed - no edginess, no sharpness whatsoever, nothing is jutting out there, everything's in harmony - ah, so Japanese that!

Finish

Lemon zest, (salty) lemon-/orange rind, coriander, nutmeg, bitter tangerines flare up then, ginger sherbet fizz. Citruses galore.

Soft but lasting. With an exclusive balance once again.

Comments

In Scottish terms it might be close to Lowland territories.

Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one.

Nose

Very sweet without smoke, pineapple and stewed apple, banana and red berries.

Taste

Very smooth and mellow, banana and sherry, milk chocolate

Finish

medium finish, sherry and spices. 

Comments

This is very young and not that matured in my opinion. However, the casks they used were exceptional. This is a very decent sherries whisky.

Color

Nose
Puur en licht. Vanille, licht bloemig. Lelie, venkel, fruit. Hint van noten (hazelnoot / brazilnoten). Dennen tonen. Maltige zoetheid gecombineerd met sappige, esterachtig aroma’s, met name bananensnoep. Er is ook een zeer discrete hint naar rook.
Zoet en verfijnd met een mooi niveau van complexiteit.
Taste
Onmiddellijk prikkelend en kruidig, klampt zich vast aan de tong het levert een enorme vracht aan kruidig fruit (rozijnen, pruimen) en citrus oliën met een beetje zilt. Mooie eiken tonen die niet bitter zijn, sherry, karamel en een hint naar espresso.
Dit is een robuuste dram. De kracht van alcohol lijkt veel groter lijkt dan de gebottelde sterkte van 45%.
Finish

Lange afdronk met tonen van ontbijtgranen, kruiden en eiken. Eindigt droog met een hint naar pepermunt.

Comments
Deze whisky is nog net wat te jong en krachtig. Ik zou hem graag terug zien als hij 15 of 20 jaar op een goed vat gelegen heeft om zo zijn jeugdige kracht wat af te vlakken en de complexe tonen en aroma’s verder te ontwikkelen. Alles is wel aanwezig in deze whisky echter wordt het overstemt door de kracht in deze dram. Maar zeker geen slechte whisky. De peperigheid doet me wederom denken aan de Talisker 10.

Nose

Doux, délicat et fruité. Anis, fleur d'oranger, fenouil, délicatement fruité. Un côté crémeux intéressant, avec de la vanille, du miel. Chlorophylle.

Taste

Frais mais plus sec qu'au nez. Beaucoup de malt. C'est puissant, mais on a perdu la richesse aromatique du nez. Avec un peu d'ouverture, des notes de poivre.

Finish

Intense sur les épices et les céréales

Comments

Un nez très intéressant, mais une bouche trop sèche.

Interesting nose, probably because of the mizunara oak but all in all too expensive.

Pleasant dram.
