  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    In the nose a mixture of fruit and wood notes. The fruits are more yellow and more peel than pulp. The wood notes rather juicy and from then to then dusty.
    In the mouth nice sweetness like forest honey. But then the oak comes clearly and brings spice into play. Resinous notes also get through. Then nuts.

    The price for a liter bottle at that time was really good. A big bottle would not have been wrong. Unfortunately, it is no longer available.

  3. domani scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Good whisky, the nose mild and rather reserved, wonderfully spicy and sparkling on the palate with clearly emphasized aromas and a dash of bitterness - 20.12.2019
    • Nose
      Mild nose with a slightly exotic touch, white flesh, lychee, peach, fine spicy barrel aromas, a little toffee, walnut, freshly opened pack of pine nuts, leaf parsley, lemon grass
    • Taste
      Spicy-tingling, watery texture, astringent, intense, tingling barrel flavor, very nice tannins, toffee, caramel, bourbon vanilla, roasted hazelnut, at the end the bitterness strikes again
    • Finish
      medium

  4. Beaty-Tang scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Beautifully balanced between maturity and seasoning on tap, youthful freshness, Bourbon Fassreifung and sherry Fassreifung. Round, harmonious, complex. A dream!
    In the finish then spicy and bitter. A full load of tannins and unfortunately nothing more. This is too violent and gives point deduction.
    Too bad, without the disturbing departure it would have been an absolutely perfect whisky.
