  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I think that's really great. A great balanced, round whisky with a nice sherry influence, which builds up pressure in the mouth and does not hide its long maturity.
    • Nose
      90 90
      At the beginning sweet sherry and wine notes, then roasted aromas, vanilla, citrus and orange. In the course comes spiciness, some oak and finally pepper. All in a very nice, interwoven mixture.
    • Taste
      90 90
      It starts with pronounced vanilla and dark fruits and caramel. Then oak and moderately bitterness builds up. The alcohol is quite strong for the 43% and also comes over a bit peppery.
    • Finish
      89 89
      A very long finish with oak and Nussigkeit and it remains a long creamy mouthfeel.
