  1. KyotoLefty scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Appearance: Deep orange-amber, bit of legs.

    Nose: Rich malty nose, light smoke, honey, vanilla, melon, tropical fruit, lemon, a touch of earthy mushrooms. Wax.

    Palate: Very hot. Vanilla, honey, caramel, smoke, nuts, brown sugar.

    Finish: Heat. Peppery, earthy. Caramel.

    With Water: Needs water. More smoke in the nose. Sweet caramel and smoke, spicy and still strong, honey, vanilla. Bourbon cask influence.

    Overall: Powerful stuff. Simple but nice, the smoke adding just enough interest. Still a bit young and hot though. Nice biscuity malt.

    A Brief Comparison of 10yo (WID: 56765), 15yo (WID: 68235), and 10yo 100 ° Proof (WID: 107978)

    In the direct comparison between 10yo and 15yo, I first try hard to choose a favorite. The 10 is a little fresher, younger and the 15er muted and darker. The 15er probably has more sherry influence. Also, the smoke is rounder at 15, but somehow fuller. At first I found the 15er a bit more boring than the 10, because he was maybe too smooth in comparison. Now I think the 15er but better. He is rounder (not boring), but also voluminous.

    The 10yo 100 ° proof naturally has more power. Also he looks somehow dirtier than the other two. From the notes he goes rather in the direction of 15 with more power and dirty impact. Not so elegant, but heartier. You could probably have appreciated a bit older.

    A total of 3 really delicious malts. For me, the 10yo 100 ° is the winner. I already had a bottle of that and there will probably be another one.
    The 10yo 100 °, if you like it a bit gruff.
    The 15yo, if it should be a little quieter.
    But even the 10yo is a malt that you can buy for the money.
