Personal Comment
The nose is unusually expressive, very floral with very nice hints of fruit (coconut, banana, mango, apple). A real invitation... Very far from the discretion of lots of whiskies, and very far from the aggressiveness of many others. In the palate, a wonderful complexity, starting on slightly acid notes (citrus fruit) which are soon replaced by a kind of alcohol feeling, fading rapidly to make room for some very nice smooth malty notes combined to fine woody hints. A nice finish, lingering and warm, with a pleasant mix of nutty hints and citrus fruit, and finally coconut despite quite a strong alcohol feeling.

An exceptional nose. Some mix of coconuts with sweet spices, with strong medicinal hints quickly disappearing after a few aeration minutes.
In the palate, when the first alcoholic impression is away, a very nice complexity, allying fine woody hints to malty smoothness. Relative smoothness however, due to the high percentage of alcohol, and a bit in contradiction with some discrete citrus hints. The finish is amazingly long and rich. Coconut mixes delicately with wood and citrus fruit. Really a very nice bottle.

A nice fruity and slighlty smoky nose. Some spices on the background and some smells somewhere between musty ones and mushrooms in a humid undergrowth. In the mouth, a nice but paradowal impression of citrus freshness and old wood. The taste developes constantly between those extremes. This makes it rather complex. The percentage of alcohol does not hinder. The finish is nice too, warm and woody, but however a bit short.

A fruity nose with discrete hints of bitter almonds, unfortunately the obvious presence of alcohol works clearly against it in first instance. Good thing is that it quickly dims to make room for clear dry fruit notes and some touches of citrus fruit.
In the mouth, the first impression is quite similar to the one of the nose. Alcoholic aggressiveness, acid notes, citrus fruit developing after a while on a more bitter palette of tastes. Nice complexity, but clear domination of acidity.
A lingering and strong finish, very fresh despite the remaining memory of strong alcohol.

Personal Comment
A rather clear nose, mixing citrus and malt, slightly pungent. In the mouth, a mix of honey and acid citrus with a walnut taste on the background. A very nice balance between smoothness, bitterness and acidity gives this whisky a very pleasant complexity. A very nice finish, lingering and between cereal and chocolate.

A very nice nose, marked by a kind of freshness, somewhere between mint and citrus fruit. In the palate, a marvelous impression of complexity, with tastes simultaneously dominated by citus like acid notes and very smooth hints of honey, developing rather quickly on chocolate and malt with an amazing impressin of very fine wood. The whole is very subtle. A finish of great distinction, very complex and very long, but really very long, which brings pleasure to a rather unknown high level.
88/100
The first nose is marked by some floral notes and a touch of medicinal (ether) ones which fortunately quickly disappear before developing on some roasted coffee beans and some fruit on the background, Nice complexity anyway.
In the mouth a pleasant mix of slightly bitter hints (walnut) and some acid (citrus fruit) touches and the coffee notes are still part of the whole image. However, the acid character seems to dominate.
The finish is lingering and fresh, prolonging perfectly the mouth.

Personal Comment
A vegetal fresh nose. I would say some cut nettle, which smell is more spiced as that of grass. It is less acid too. Some pepper and may be some fruity hints.
In the palate, smoothness and chocolate notes. Rather straight, this whisky develops on a rather limited however quite interesting taste palette. Malt and sweetness.
The finish is warm and quit long, but rather straight too, which is coherent with the nose and mouth.
