    A predictable display by a 100 € whisky. Has many interesting elements to the nose and palate, but not distinct enough to score 90. The finish wasn't to my liking.
    • Nose
      Refreshing and juicy. Fruity. Creamy.
      Fruits, distinctively juicy wet apples. The perfect aroma to leave you just licking your chops for the liquid. Bread, wood, cream.
    • Taste
      Deceptively the juicy aroma is now gone. Citric and sweet.
      Lemon, chocolate, plum, honey, oak.
    • Finish
      Leaves a strong, spicy taste tingling for a long while. This whisky doesn't seem to be affected by the amount of water poured into the glass.
      Meadowy flowers. Hardly has even that mandatory pinch of peat.

  3. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Recommendable for the around €100 it retails for. Warning: the cork of the bottle snapped on first opening. 
    • Nose
      Butter, dry and varnished oak that reminds me of grand pianos. Wildflowers. Very summery, quite light, with just a dash of peat. Every now and then a very faint soapy note that never gets too loud to count as a flaw. With water: batter? 
    • Taste
      It felt too light-bodied on first tasting just after the bottle was opened, but it seems like even a day old sample is already more firm. A pinch of peat and then summery freshness: flowers again, rosewater, light honey, and old oak that's so refill it's mostly wood. By default I'd guess ex-bourbon, but it could as well just be a thoroughly exhausted sherry cask. With water the body gets better, and the taste becomes a little stronger as the peat opens up. There's also some ripe fruitiness now.
    • Finish
      Mostly on oak, then some grass with a lingering oily feeling on the lips, but here the whole could stand to be louder. Were the finish the same caliber as the nose and the palate, I'd be willing to go to 90.

    Pleasant nose, integrated alcohol. Very classic, well done. Beautiful length, a hint of woody bitterness, a touch of "metallic" and aromatic spices.
