  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    This is an excellent, well aged whisky, but still has enough fresh notes and a very wide range in the nose. He is incredibly easy to drink and yet strong enough to impress. The only thing I don't understand: Why the hell is there "peated" on the bottle? I have never found a tin of smoke anywhere.

      It starts with the full side of the fruit, which you can unravel over time in raisins, oranges and plums. In addition, a clear wax note. Vanilla and roasted flavors also come. After a long time there is grass and wet hay, light sulfur and old wall units.
    • Taste
      90 90
      At the beginning again fruits (mainly raisins) and the wax is back. Sweet and spicy impressions follow, then slowly become bitter. The alcohol is well integrated and sufficiently strong.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long with some bitterness, oak and walnut.

    Unfortunately, no smoke perceptible in contrast to the bottling on February 26, 2015. Too bad.

    Super tasty, great malt.
    Ideal combination of malt, sherry, smoke and peat, age, oak influence spice.
    Everything extremely balanced and balanced, at the same time complex, harmonious, intense and full-bodied.
    Lots of fruit, including exotic fruits such as pineapple, coconut, pink grapefruit, raisins, plums, vanilla, caramel, toffee, various herbs and spices such as mint, oregano, chicory, aniseed, wild honey, gentle smoke and light peat.
    Very long finish.
    Highly recommended, exactly my taste.

    Peated? Smoke is barely noticeable ...
    Very sweet and fruity.
    There are certainly sherry casks included!
    I had expected him smoother. Does not matter, it is still a very fine Malt!
