  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A successful, unfussy, balanced, beautifully matured Ex-Bourbon whisky! After tasting sipped on empty glass - cinnamon! Where was that before? ... hmmm, I'll have to try again;) just under 85Punkte
    • Nose
      Cooling nose, absolutely no prickling, vanilla, honeydew melon, sweet, woody, gentle and harmless but still fresh.
    • Taste
      The barrel is right there. Oak, sweetness, spiciness, a little Werther's real, say caramel, pleasantly creamy, a touch of bitterness, but in a tolerable degree
    • Finish
      Medium long, first sweet, then a bit bitter, warming the neck nicely. I like it better with some water than without it.

  2. Othorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    2 teaspoons of water on 2cl were ideal for me. A varied and delicious malt.
    • Nose
      Peach, pear, vanilla, warm banana bread, lemon, a sweet, spicy note, honey
    • Taste
      Creamy, custard with cinnamon and peach, freshly ground black pepper,
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, nutty, slightly bitter oak, coffee,
