Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonInitially a bit dourly styled maltiness. Bready.. but a buttery vanilla note hides in there also. With a little time it transforms completely into a dry pear bomb. Much more attractive than the initial closed maltiness. Pears all over the taste. Dry, fresh. Peppery aftertaste. Quite refreshing indeed.
Krishna NukalaNice & fruity.Lovely warm floral and citrous notes with a dash of water. The florals arrive as Lavender after some time. Bitter whisky with round and full bodied texture; finishes with some spicyness(Blind tasting notes MMA 2013)
