  1. Numwierum scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Smell: Light and gentle notes of sherry and oranges, very subtle wax, a little caramel and a finely spicy aroma can be heard in the background.
    Taste: Intense, peppery at the beginning, then the fruit sweetness develops, again light notes of sherry, oranges and grapefruits. Also in the taste a subtle wax aroma, plus a slightly herbal touch.
    Finish: Medium length, the spiciness of the oak picks up speed and a dryness sets in in the mouth.
    Conclusion: A fine drinking whisky, with a pleasant drinking strength, which has its rough edges.

    A nice dram. But don't expect a too intense nose. You have to concentrate after the first sip to the aromas. That's fun!

      Before first sip:
      Fruity orange and some honey notes directly with the first aromas. But nothing really to explore.

      After first sip (retronasal):
      More intense. Dried fruits, vanilla, oranges and pineapples.

      Oily mouthfeeling. Lovely sweetness out of honey. Strawberry candy and wax.
    • Finish
      84 84
      I love the spice which is coming with the finish! The finish is mid-to-long.

  10. Sonett scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      First a very light nose of raisins and figs, some canned apricots, vanilla and honey
    • Taste
      Taste much stronger than the nose, here the sherry comes through followed by chili pepper 
    • Finish
      medium long, dominated by sweet chili pepper and honey
