9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.52 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    with water: add a few oranges, but a drop or two is enough, otherwise it will be too thin

    Conclusion: A really elegant malt, which has a bit too much leather notes on the nose. With 46% that would be a blast
    • Nose
      86 86
      sweet sherry with raisins and ripe plums, some hazelnut, cocoa, but also spicy with leather and some cloves
    • Taste
      88 88
      soft and round, dark sweetness, plum, cocoa, not quite as spicy as the nose
    • Finish
      87 87
      long, warm sherry and some tannins, cocoa, slightly bitter on the back, hazelnut shell

  3. LeChiffre scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fantastically elegant, wonderfully balanced and multi-layered single malt. There is a lot to discover, very exciting. One of my favorite whiskys, an absolute must-have in the bar compartment. It could only have a slightly higher alcohol strength.
    • Nose
      91 91
      mild and complex; Sherry notes; fruity-sweet with dark fruits (raisins, plums); Berries; Caramel; delicate leather notes; fine spicy notes; delicate wood flavor
    • Taste
      89 89
      soft and voluminous; Sherry; dark fruits; Raisins; Plums; some cinnamon and chocolate; delicate leather; increasingly slightly tingling and spicy on the tongue and beautiful, delicate tart oak aromas come through
    • Finish
      90 90
      medium length and warming; strong, spicy oak notes with a pleasant, delicate bitterness; Cinnamon; great leather note flashes; served with sweet and dark chocolate
