  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Young, sparkling, fresh, fruity - beautiful spring whisky
    • Nose
      Ripe peaches, chamomile flower, quince compote, lime, vanilla sugar, rhubarb - with the addition of water, beautiful honey aromas dissolve
    • Taste
      Apricot, peach, sour kumquat, grapefruit, some cereals and behind it already noticeable oak - pleasantly mouth-filling
    • Finish
      fruity, fresh, short

    SMWS tasting notes:

    Like an expensive perfume it expressed a multitude of floral fragrances with a careful balance of soft and attractive fruits. Sweet apple blossom and wisteria harmoniously integrated with clementine, nectarines, black grapes and plum skins. There was a sweet and malty note like oatcakes and lemon sponge with soft icing but also with the tartness of marmalade and quince jelly. The palate developed this fresh edge into gooseberry tart and crab apple jam with the distinctive tingly warmth of fresh ginger. Then sweetness again as honey and toffee combined with orange liqueur before nutmeg and cooling menthol appeared on the finish.
