  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=308 Color: full gold Nose: Smoky-fruity starting. Golden yellow apple, soft lime, avocado, white ash, smoke, leather and old paper. Delicately peppery and with only light wood flavors. Underground runs discreet Einmachgummi. Slightly peaty, "farmy notes" and hints of licorice come on and complete a beautiful overall picture. Taste: Spicy, distinctive and fruity sweet. Herbs, wood, nuts, smoky peat, malt and caramel, as well as a good portion of vanilla. Soft cream and butter complement the fruit of green apple and lime. Finish: Not quite as long, but good - the wood makes the finish drier and the smoke more intense. Otherwise, with the harmonious taste notes fading, which are complemented towards the end of mocha and chocolate. 89 points N: 89P / G: 90P / F: 89P
