    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=260 Color : pale gold Nose : Fat, malty, heavy caramelized aromas of brown cane sugar, hazelnuts, nut nougat cream, salt, vanilla sticks and some honey. Taste : Soft and salty-spicy. Wood, dried herbs and a fruit sweetener with some soap and a slight perfume note. The salt is always present, but bitter notes dominate the second half of the taste. The still slightly soapy notes go into the finish. Finish : Medium length - malty honey aromas, dry wood, herbs and in this combination too bitter. Green tart notes in a soapy, light sweetness stick to the tongue. 85 points (nose: 88 / taste: 85 / finish: 83)
