  1. rottendon scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I like it really well! Wonderful balance, great mouthfeel and the necessary complexity to not be boring. Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Juicy. Peaches immediately, are gone after a few moments, but now he is extremely mineral, bazooka gum and acid overtones. Very fruity after a while, apricots especially, a pinch of cowshed, krill and an idea of ​​garlic and a dash of lime. Warms up more lime, then yellow fruit and caramel, more cowshed now disinfectant. With more and more warmth increasingly maritime.
    • Taste
      Very oily, mild, yet not powerless, little sweetness in the form of dark caramel, pleasant acidity, citrus zest towards grapefruit. Also mineral and only very few tannins, which in the second sip to the rear but a little stronger.
    • Finish
      He walks relatively slowly, slightly warming, still oily. The already subtle sweetness is quickly completely gone, it remains oily, very tender tart ash. Overall, medium to long.
