  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    great whisky, alcohol is super integrated
    • Nose
      Spicy smoke, tannins, resin, sweetness of wine finish, cinnamon, slightly chocolaty (whole milk), caramel pieces, initially with a lot of fruit, but then covered, roasted nuts
    • Taste
      creamy in the mouth, noticeably fruity, cherry, slightly sour, bold, a touch of match, roasted nuts, cinnamon, intense, yummy, the smoke is there, but does not play a major role
    • Finish
      still creamy, nuts, slightly chocolaty, the smoke is above all

  2. rottendon scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    For a wine finish extremely well balanced, round and clean, the smoke and the alcohol are perfectly integrated.

      Red berries and subtle smoke at the beginning. After a while, vinous notes and caramel develop, the fruits disappear, the smoke remains fully integrated. Cinnamon warms up and the aromas are intensified overall, with the wine notes increasing disproportionately. The alcohol is never in the nose. Very late and with increasing heat results in an oblique combination of cough syrup and cow manure, which, however, can only last a short time.

      Again, red fruits, dark caramel, a dash of fir honey before the alcohol strong, but never sharp, unfolds its effect in the form of ginger and bring a well-sized portion of tannins, chocolate with extremely high cocoa content. The mouthfeel is fat and oily.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is rather short to medium long and is dominated by the smoke in the form of tart ash. The chest cavity is kept warm for a long time.
