    cool, but not perfect
    • Nose
      Black radish juice, leather, raisins, sweet and sour, floral, mocha,
    • Taste
      sharp start with sweet heat Raisins and sherry in leather bag Flowers in the arm a sultry night the asphalt is still hot after the sweet kiss a hot mocha
    • Finish
      a tough memory so much heat and sweetness Your tongue sticks to the palate Your saliva flows in the throat You think of Paxarette

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    That's too much for me, really dry, fleshy sherry, already kind of cool, but only for certain audiences ...
    • Nose
      Dark caraway, brown bread, old, dried leather, pure licorice, nutmeg, black pepper, some lovage, black tea and some grated coffee beans, dark chocolate, very dark and closed
    • Taste
      Straight dark caraway and pumpernickel, dark, sticky sweetness, rum raisins in a stew and with roast, beef fillet, wow what a force in the mouth, leather, mocha, dark chocolate and liquorice
    • Finish
      Dry, bitter, sweetish, mocha, grated coffee beans, nutmeg, licorice and dark malt, old chest of drawers, medium to long

    Apart from the rather shy nose, this is a stellar dram with an amazing long finish.
