  1. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nice balance of fruit and spice, with a little more exotic fruit - very good without water drinkable - more on the palate than in the nose - delicious smooth malt with very good PLV [91] - can not keep up with Burgie 1986 GS and Maltbarn unfortunately - costs much less.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Muesli, malt, noble mold, cooked meat, roux, with some time or more distance to the glass, beeswax, orange, fresh lemon and mint, sweetish flowers, refreshing nose
    • Taste
      91 91
      sweet and oily - very fruity, light spicy oak - tree sap, sawdust of green wood, ginger, pepper, sweet and sour pineapple yoghurt with chili, star fruit, orange, grapefruit skin - beautifully balanced, full-bodied - long chewable
    • Finish
      87 87
      warming, vanilla cream, tree sap, tobacco - delicate bittertöne - runs dry and spicy

      Vanilla with some cinnamon and ginger. Followed by fruity notes like orchard fruits, peaches and mango. Notes of fruity toffees complemented by grenadine syrup. At the end some beeswax and floral notes that make me think of a flowershop.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Amazingly fruity! It starts with exotic fruits like mango, pineapple, peaches and grapefruit peels. There is also a note of red apples to be found. Notes of fruity toffees complemented by honey. Next a note of mout, followed by ginger. At the end very clear notes of oak and licorice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long! It stays very woody woth notes of oak and licorice. Ginger sticks all the time. After a few minutes you can still taste vanilla and peaches.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very strong and intense whisky, the high Abv shows itself. A lot of tropical fruits and sweetness, very pleasant. A few drops of water immediately cuts the sharpest edges.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fruity, tropical fruits. Alcohol pretty prominent. Oranges, waxy, floral too. Very fresh, some vanilla now.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong, intense, full taste. Very fruity, tropical fruits, orange, vanilla, honey, some peach. Then some sour edge underneath.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still pretty powerful and intense. A lot of sweetness and tropical fruits. Peach, some vanilla, pretty long finish. Later on especially peach which remains for quite some time.

  5. Erik1908 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice balance between fruit and spices I read in the various reviews. I can confirm that; especially on the nose. Given the high abv but also the remarks, I only added just a few drops of water.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Beautiful and complex in the nose. A tropical fruitbasket in combination with spices. To me this may last for hours.
    • Taste
      89 89
      The balance is there especially in the beginning, but after a while the spices take over. Pepper and chili. Very complex; a kind of explosion of spices in the mouth. love it.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long. Quite dry in the end and strange enough a bit watery for me in the very end.

  8. craide scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice tasty malt. You can still drink it without water, but for me some water has to be added. It doesn't open very far, but loses some of the spicy, sharp notes. That makes it rounder for me.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Nice sweetness with a peach and orange fruit note. At the beginning there is a slight alcoholic note that quickly fades away. Fresh oatmeal with a hint of citrus. Mm and some wax.
      Subtly woody, spicy.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sharp start, neat spice. You can still drink reasonably well without water if you like intense spice. Malty with light honey sweetness and vanilla. With ginger and pepper.
      Everything is rounded off by the oranges, grapes and apples. Well balanced, although the spice predominates.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-length finish, becoming dry with a little vanilla and a little coffee.

  9. LeChiffre scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very intense malt with a successful balance between fruitiness and a peppery spice. I like it better in the mouth than in the nose. The peppery and spicy seasoning is very dominant, but still fits for me.
    • Nose
      87 87
      fruity and sweet; spicy; yellow fruits; institutions; citrus; apples; Honey; Porridge; slightly waxy note; delicate oak flavor
    • Taste
      89 89
      oily, full-bodied and peppery powerful; also intensely sweet; sweet and sour fruity (yellow fruits); oranges; apples; Honey; peppery-spicy oak
    • Finish
      88 88
      long and warm; Espresso notes; Chilli; Vanilla; peppery-spicy oak lasts for a long time with delicate bitterness
