Anmeldt: 01.07.16

Pris Vinmonopolet: Finnes ikke. Pris internett: 36,50 £

Alkohol: 45%

Farge: Lys strågul. Mulig amerikansk bourbonfat?

Lukt: Herlig snop! Mye fersken, tørket ananas, (skum)banan, kokos og noe lær. Med litt vann blir den mer krydret

Smak: Fyller munnen godt/oljete, fruktig og nøttete.

Vurdering: Absolutt en herlig whisky som anbefales sterkt! Og at dette er sommer er det ingen tvil om! Terningen er en solid femmer!
