  1. Lorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Wow. I am impressed. A masterpiece. Unfortunately in Germany only indirectly. 90 points.
    • Nose
      First, I have sweet nuts. The nuts are sautéed with sugar. In addition there are fruits, chocolate raisins, dates in the chocolate coat and cherries. The barrel shows itself subtly with a wine-soaked wood note. Sweet herbs, some resin. Milk chocolate. And now warm, fresh, light cinnamon rolls with hot plum jam inside. The chocolate becomes more and more intense with time. Something Almdudler (which are probably the sweet herbs) can be seen and marzipan. Fantastic. More time brings cooling roast apple in the nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet, juicy, soft. That's how the whisky flows into your mouth. The cherry is already fermented a bit, slightly mellow leather is added. Seasoning spreads in the mouth and fills it. Chocolate with spicy oak and scattered cherries and chocolate raisins. In the after-taste comes with the swallowing a wonderful pipe-tobacco note, as if one smelled on an old pipe or on a pipe cleaner. The second sip is spicier and brings Christmas spices. Gingerbread.
    • Finish
      Long remains a leathery cherry with tobacco in the mouth, a little further back the chocolate. The tobacco evaporates slowly, leather and remains of a cherry remain longer. It is getting drier towards the end.

  2. wisekycourse did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Elegant, intoxicating, mouth-watering, long-lasting, but above all a base for Blosso at a lower price, and a 250-liter botta media breeding. originally!
    On the nose, dried fruits a little toasted, spices, leather and wood amalgam, blackcurrant sherry for me, cooler than the blosso!
