    Powerfull sherry dram, a lot of cherries, cassis. At some times some sugar sweetness, but overal the red fruits dominate. Pleasant one for sure.

  8. Numwierum scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Batch I - goes more in the direction, red berries with light wood notes and the alcohol is barely audible.
    Batch II - has more hints of red grapes and some fermented fruit, the alcohol is slightly more present here.

    Mouth: Batch I - it starts very sweet, then red berries, a bit dry with light oak. Batch II - the start is strong and slightly bitter, again fermented fruits, then a little raisin.

    Finish: Batch I - medium-long, woody aromas and raisins remain behind.
    Batch II - quite short, easy to feel the alcohol and the fermented fruit come to light again.

    Two young Port Whisky's living off their using barrels. As different the color, as different the taste. Can one say that one is better, the other worse? I think both of them are good, but yes I have my favorite and that's the batch I! The alcohol is better integrated and the fruit notes I feel as intense. But I like the fact that the two batches are different, because the tastes are different and it is not boring.

  9. Noface83 scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Young, intense and tasty, fun is the part and priced for the original price of 55-60 EUR also great. But of course it lacks depth and age. Therefore not worth the hype and the high secondary market prices.
    • Nose

      Wow fierce port influence - lots of leather and raspberries, dark cherries, heavy wine sweetness and clove and pepper. Also slightly sour and light yeast. Also malt and youth is something there (good is also a NAS). Nice neat oak and win touch of coffee,

      What a creamy and intense start with lush sweetness, warming alcohol, children's punch with cherry juice and gingerbread spices, a hint of sulfur, dark chocolate and some oak bitterness.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium but intense finish with plum wine and dark cherries, lots of chocolate and leather. Very dry.

  10. LittlePeat scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Among the very young whiskys - one of the better types. Beer-lemonade mix on the nose (Berliner Kindl Weisse Raspberry), but then very pleasantly herbal and spicy on the palate with a long spicy finish. There is also a very slight sulfur-smoke note.

    A year later: I can now also hear a strong nuttiness in the nose, like a Sauternes. Slightly biting on the palate, but also very nutty, accompanied by dark beer and Sauternes. The finish is very long, with a dark strong beer and sweet roasted almonds.
