General description

Extremely fruity and original whisky, surprisingly light and satisfying. Pineapple, mango, lemon and pear give it an exotic feel, with oak and vanilla reminding of the classic taste of a single malt.

Nose

Extremely fruity: pineapple and lemon, with some hints of mango.

Palate

Sweet and very pleasant. Mango and lemon are dominant, with pear in the background.

Finish

A decent amount of oak, with vanilla sweetness and pear notes.

General description

Very impressed by this whisky. Tropical fruits (the bottle says mango, specifically), but almost dusty. Slightly sweet. I really recommend at least sampling this once.

Color: Russetmuscat

General description

Sweet, fruity, mouthwatering. Sharp contrast between the malt and alcohol, and the sweet tropical fruits of the distillery character. Nothing like scotch, irish whiskey, or bourbon. Amazing mouthwatering desert.

Finish strength: Short
Color: Burnished

General description

Starts with a nice but not too interesting nose and leaves you with bad composition and a thin and disappointing finish. Really good to smell in the winter and pour into your hot chocolate later...

Nose

Sweet fruit bread, winy, spicy. Dried dates and marzipan.

Palate

Not as sweet as the nose. Mildly bitter and a bit thin.

Finish

Cappuccino, some spices and a bit herbal.

Better than I was expecting. Fruitier than I prefer, but not unpleasantly so. A decent dram.

General description

A very beautiful expression of a nice and smooth whisky with slight complexity but yet it does not loses its fruity flavours and sweet honey and vanilla notes. Fabulous Dram.
