  2. Moses scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    First of all his problem is the 43% and ... the oak skin is too rough. But who gets along with it gets an excellent whisky for the money. Complex for lukewarm.

      Nose is one of the best in this age. All fruits are present and mix quickly with spicy tea notes. Tobacco and slightly sour raisins. So there is something offered and with time it gets more and more complex.

      Christmas spicy with fresh coffee and cloves he is very malty. Here the oak is dominant. Too bad. But with tobacco, cinnamon and good sherry notes, he does his job masterfully. Still above standard. He deserves respect.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long, but rather on the dry side, it remains spicy and fruity on the palate. Now orange peel and bright apple to it. Already delicious. But not top league.
