  2. Lorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Great ex-bourbon barrel! Supple and "old", but at the same time intense and powerful. 88 points.
    • Nose
      Vanilla and pineapple are right there. Spicy, aromatic oak, which quickly gains in intensity. Very sweet with sour lime splashes. I smell a little coconut. Even some malt character is noticeable. Lemon cake roll. Peach, passion fruit. Fine wood chips. Now herbs are added. Oregano and some dill. The nose is getting older by the minute, tobacco gets into the nose after the inclusion of the palate.
    • Taste
      An oak dominated, full and astringent mouthfeel begins. Sweet, lemon and vanilla. A whole fresh fruit salad with pineapple, apples, oranges and sugared almond slivers. A good deal of tobacco creeps up and governs the re-tasting. Chocolate that is slowly getting darker. The alcohol is super involved. The second sip is sweeter but has more tobacco.
    • Finish
      Warm and sweet with tobacco and delicate bitterness. Medium to long.

    #4 of the local dealer Tasting. Now it finally gets interesting... Ok nose But very long and smooth in the mouth... Just keeps on going and changing while staying very present in the mouth.... Just a drop of water makes it smoother, but be careful with water.

  6. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    a nicely matured, gentle, quite fruity Dram especially on the palate neatly turns on and optimally brings his age to advantage - price performance I think is great - but a direct Do-Wollen-Reiz is not there yet - the Scoma Burgie 86 has me well dirty
    • Nose
      Fresh in the glass, herbaceously austere, with more time it gets more pleasing, oily oak, some old lemon, delicate pineapple notes - which warms ever more intense, spicy honey, fresh light oak with lots of mint and ethereal notes like rosemary, citrus and eucalyptus
    • Taste
      At first sourish sweet with intense almost overwhelming lemon note, apples, pears, fresh and canned pineapple, that sounds pretty fast - he gets calmer - with some chewing geranium leaves, covered green tea, jasmine flowers, astringent light oak, birch sap, vegetable spicy tannins, the mouthfeel is slightly syrupy viscous, nice texture
    • Finish
      roasted grains, light flour, cultivated oak spiciness - multi-faceted, fine, spicy, slightly waxy, here you can feel the age, quite long and warm

  7. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    a great "Cereal" Malt. Lots of fruit and ripe wood notes with cereal arms. I did not know that yet.
    • Nose
      Pure: slightly pungent at first, lemon in orange lemonade. When that's over, pineapple follows with yogurt, honey and cereals, cereals and herbs on top. Very ripe, very complex without being woody. With water it becomes more flowery, "clearer", more accessible.
    • Taste
      Pure: concentrated fruit at the beginning, then spicy oak with white pepper, salt and a pinch of parsnip. Here, too, herbs and a delicious muesli note. Complex and complex. Not quite as round as the Linkwood. With water: tasty, slightly malty and less spicy.
    • Finish
      long, malty and fruity.
