  10. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A start that brought high standards and a review going towards the 89. But the palate and finish was nothing like that and was an anticlimax. 85 
    • Nose
      Nice surprising nose! Quite the cameleon. It changes direction and very layered. 
      Nice sweetness from caramel. Fresh fruity with canary melons and nectarines. Then a meaty side with bacon or ham. Totally fun and highly enjoyable. Thick and sweet honey. White chocolate with coconut rasp. 
    • Taste
      And then the palate. After an adventurous nose I expected something from the palate. Sadly itś very easy going, very normal even a bit dull. So vanilla, creamy, buttery and round. Applejuice and other jammy fruit. A bit of spices like peper and ginger. 
    • Finish
      Vanilla, wood and apple. Also the same easy going nothing special what was lost from the great nose.
