  1. tribe scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    It's OK, but found it very average, but doesn't tolerate long opening hours. Again, malt, smoke (from the barrel?), Sweetness and hazelnut or wood

  2. Malthead19 scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    - an honest, decent malt with rough edges
    - not really suitable for beginners, strong character
    - at around 40 € not cheap for a 10 year old standard bottling, but definitely worth drinking
    • Nose
      Sherry, light smoke, cedar wood, spicy note
    • Taste
      strong start, sherry, some smoke, clear wood note, oak, still slightly burning alcohol taste, very special. Aftertaste, towards liquorice
    • Finish
      strong, medium-long finish;
      long finish with spice and dry sherry

  10. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant, light spacer with unexpected smoky impregnations, on the whole quite harmoniously fitting into the overall picture, quite dense and saturated for its fortress.
    • Nose
      Warm, dry, sun-heated board, wood dust, salted fish, light smoke, lemon, flower tones, caramel.
    • Taste
      Bitter, cool, oak-peppery, smoky notes, coal, lemon, fruit candied fruits.
    • Finish
      Soft, light smoke, lemon, weak oak bitterness, lemon peel, little warming ginger, herbal sour.
