  1. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Blind Notes! Super PLV and looks like a nice barrel - not like a blend - currently € 67 a bargain
    • Nose
      at first a bit stubborn with bitter metal - so we leave him - later super clean, really lots of vanilla, hints of flowers, orange, lemon with honey, mango, butter cream, lots of light oak, freshly peeled branches, fresh cut boards in the sun , sweet grass, the nose looks very noble - that is not only free of false notes - that has something
    • Taste
      slightly sour, dry oak, fresh - spicy dry and all with a nice splash of lemon, lemon balm and mint, pineapple, apple slices with custard, while chewing laurel, allspice and a hint of nutmeg, it has a certain power - the alcohol is pleasantly noticeable
    • Finish
      rather dry - astringent, pleasant tart woody, citric, mint, rosemary sharpness

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I had the two, three times "on the side" tried and so mentally in mind "jo, very nice, tasty, but for 80 ¬'s back and front not enough." I'm not so sure anymore - I enjoy the damn delicious, the mouse we always sympathize.
    • Nose
      Tropifrutti - grapefruit, pineapple, half green banana, lime, later a little vanilla, cereals, mild white pepper, also a bit salty-mineral - very nice
    • Taste
      creamy banana, canned peach, vanilla, white chocolate, butter biscuits, later milk chocolate, mild black pepper, very tasty
    • Finish
      medium to long, herbaceous-sweet (not quite Ricola, but so the direction), chocolate, slightly spicy so'n a mixture of pepper / clove / cinnamon in mild)

    • Nose
      Fruity. Who said “Aren’t you able to give more precisions, dude?” ???? Ok, we’ve got here sweet armoas of apples, apricots and prunes, alright dude? ????
    • Taste
      Still, logically, on something fruity, mainly with apples. And some gourmet pastry notes, rather biscuits actually. With a touch of vanilla and spices, like cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium lenght, remaining, with a great pleasure, on cinnamon and vanilla.

    • Nose
      Fruity. How can you be more precise, man? ???? Ok, we're on aromas of apples, apricots and plums, how are you, man? ????
    • Taste
      We remain, logically, on something fruity with mostly apples. And some gourmet pastry notes, rather biscuits actually. With a touch of vanilla and spices, like cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Average over its length, remaining, with great pleasure, on cinnamon and vanilla.

  10. Abadon05 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    So for me there is no difference to the TB without age. On the contrary. Clear alcohol notes. Too bad.
    • Nose
      Honey, flower meadow, grape
    • Taste
      The honey stays, but a light alcohol burning
    • Finish
      Lemon, seasoning, but strangely too alcoholic
