  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Didn't expect too much, positively surprised.
    • Nose
      Rich and delicious.

      Must have been some high quality sherry casks involved.

      Sweet, caramel, leather, ripe dark red berries, fresh red apple juice. A twist of citrus evolving. 

      All sprinkled with some crushed dry spice.
    • Taste
      Quite some spicy bite, but not agressive.

      Oily feel. 

      Espresso coffee, ginger, nutmeg.

      A touch of blood orange and a slice of red apple.
    • Finish
      Warming with gentle pepper.

      Coffee turning a little bitter, slightly drying.

      Long and quite enduring.

    Pulled pepper in taste, I love it very much, you can take it for a drink, but it will not bring any revelations.
    • Nose
      Not spirituous, soft, sweet, dried apples, caramel "duchess", sherry, very harmonious.
    • Taste
      Very good and powerful pepper, oak, some kind of vegetable notes, chubby radish, tannins.
    • Finish
      Average in duration, followed by a radish with pepper)))

    My favorite among the <80 € blends of CB, can really be something delicious.

    • Taste
      Nutmeg, white pepper, clove, malty, toffee, light honey, the spiciness changes with the saliva more in sweetness, then in the dryness of oak chips, cinnamon, vllt. a few kitchen herbs

      Apple peel, hay, rosemary, dried malt, citrus peel, grapefruit and some pepper in between, medium length
