Score
6,5 out of 10. It fades a bit quickly I find. Have tasted a couple of beauty’s from The Ultimate, but this one does not seem to give me a big smile on my face, just candy sweet. For a 17 year old one guess I expected a bit more depth to it. Nice, sweet and also a fresh citrus tone to it, but not something I would purchase quickly.

Tasted this one on 2 different occasions, one in the masterclass by Jan Beek and one came to us in a tasting from the Dutch Whisky Society.
