Independent Review from Whisky Saga:
Nose (22/25): A bit oaky and dusty at first. Then came citrus and vanilla. And then: Cinnamon rolls – the raw ones! Sugar and cinnamon and butter mixed with dough. After a while I found the smell of Champagne as well, the yeasty kind.
Taste (23/25): Smooth and rich! Quite complex too. Vanilla, salt and cinnamon at first. Then pears and a lot of different spices.
Finish (22/25): A long finish with dried papaya and pineapple. A lot of different spices in the end. Quite dry. Some caramel added some more sweetness beside the fruits.
Balance (23/25): I love it. A very rich and complex whisky.
