Jean-Marie Putz

A nice fruity nose with fresh green mango and apple followed by sweeter peach hints behind a light veil of smoke.
In the palate, a nice mix of green apples with fine and discrete wood developing slowly on ripe fruits and a kind of malty smoothness.
The finish is lingering, fruity with light hints of hazelnut.
An amazingly smooth whisky.

Jean-Marie Putz

The first nose is rather aggressive with however nice notes of acid fruits (green apple) before developing on something more floral. After a while the dominating impression is a great freshness. Hints of cut grass and hay appear.
In the palate, first impression is acidity but after a few seconds the taste develops on smoother notes, letting a mix of malty and fruity (plum) notes. The evolution in the mouth is really interesting even if the taste palette is rather limited.
The finish is smooth and warm, quite long and the notes of malt from the mouth are still present and some chocolate hints appear.
This bottle seems to need some aeration. A first tasting (not described) revealed a much less interesting whisky
