    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
      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. 

  5. Igor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    In Scottish terms it might be close to Lowland territories.
    • 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.

  6. detachedblue scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    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.
    • 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.

  8. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This whisky is just a little too young and powerful. I would love to see him again if he has been lying on a good barrel for 15 or 20 years in order to flatten his youthful strength and develop the complex tones and aromas further. Everything is present in this whisky, however, it is drowned out by the power in this dram. But certainly not bad whisky. The pepperiness reminds me again of the Talisker 10. 喝采!
    • Nose
      Pure and light. Vanilla, slightly floral. Lily, fennel, fruit. Hint of nuts (hazelnut / brazil nuts). Show pines. Mild sweetness combined with juicy, ester-like aromas, especially banana candy. There is also a very discreet hint to smoke. Sweet and refined with a nice level of complexity.
    • Taste
      Immediately tingling and spicy, clinging to the tongue it delivers a huge load of spicy fruit (raisins, plums) and citrus oils with a little salt. Beautiful oak tones that are not bitter, sherry, caramel and a hint of espresso. This is a robust dram. The power of alcohol seems to be much larger than the bottled strength of 45%.
    • Finish
      Long aftertaste with notes of cereals, herbs and oaks. Ends dry with a hint of peppermint.

  10. Akoo scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A very interesting nose, but a mouth too dry.
    • Nose
      Sweet, delicate and fruity. Anise, orange blossom, fennel, delicately fruity. An interesting creamy side, with vanilla, honey. Chlorophyll.
    • Taste
      Cool but drier than the nose. A lot of malt. It's powerful, but we lost the aromatic richness of the nose. With a little opening, pepper notes.
    • Finish
      Intense on spices and cereals
