NOSE: At first I got a typical note found in dry red wines such as Cabernet sauvignon, Pinot Noir which is blackcurrants with some lemon zest in the background. Vanilla, raspberries, strawberries and bitter cranberries. Caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits toffee. And a touch of gentle fresh mint. The dominant notes, however, are mixed berries jam with brown sugar. Very nice. 22/25
TASTE: a very unique flavor experience which reminds me a lot of Pop rocks candy. A very sweet toffee arrival which quickly transitions into effervescent, fizzy sour and tannin-rich cranberry flavor which then promptly disappears in the finish. This is only true for a dram out of a freshly-opened bottle. But it's a very interesting sensation, so don't miss it! The more it oxidizes in the bottle, the less you'll notice this on the taste. It mellows out a lot. The body is very thin, almost watery, which I don't really like. Yet it's very pleasant with brown sugar and berry jam again along with some warm spices, vanilla and minerality. 21 /25
FINISH: more slightly bitter and sour cranberries, orange zest and toffee. 21/25
BALANCE: it's very pleasant and unique whisky with a relatively nice balance of flavors throughout the whole experience. 22/25
OVERALL IMPRESSION: a nice jammy whisky that your girlfriend will love!
