Other reviews... Nose: the whisky may be a little light and ‘generic’ here, but the rum is able to lift it without overdoing it. Cake, floral honey, light hints of latte. There’s a milky, creamy side to it. Vanilla and citrus sweets. Banana pie. That sweet, fruity side hints towards rum indeed. Mouth: nice apple pastry, vanilla cake. Hints of peaches. Then peppery notes, moving towards grassy notes and zesty grapefruit. Finish: medium, back to honeyed notes, alongside apple peeling and eau-de-vie. This is a nice whisky, even though I’m not the biggest fan of its simple, neutral and youngish style. The rum certainly made it sweeter and added candied notes. - whiskynotes.be
