  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=292 Colour: maisgelb Nose: Very dull and leathery. In between, sweet and salty aromas of lemon and Chinese grass are pressing. Generally rather behaving with cardboard, sweet lemon liqueur, delicate herbal notes. After a little longer "air pulling", a little "Farmy stinker" of wet animal fur is added. Taste: Sweet, salty, creamy and SPICY spicy. Limes, lemons, grapefruit and avocodo. With honey, vanilla, liquorice, peat, cocoa, tobacco, creamy peaty yoghurt and leather. Careful, extremely delicious! Finish: Long to very long - dull spicy with tart chocolate and tons of smoky peat. "Dark" aromas of licorice, coffee beans, some caramel, honey, wet ash, cardboard and leather. 93 points N: 91P / G: 95P / F: 93P
