  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    An experience, did not expect it to be so exciting in the mouth regarding the construction. But the points also show that this is not about PLV.
    • Nose
      Phew, a lot of mushroom, mushrooms and mildly moderate, then with plenty of time and warmth comes a lot of dark chocolate, fine cocoa, fennel, thyme, cumin, expensive coffee, ancient leather, old, damp tobacco, nutmeg, parchment, dry liquorice, some banana split and papaya are far behind, behind the vintage curtain, saffron, ginger, aniseed, cumin, coconut, still later pomegranate, blood orange, then he will turn a bit bitter-greasy with eggplant, zucchini, the coffee, cocoa, leather and old cellars but always remain the main notes. Oh, and of course an old mahogany chest of drawers.
    • Taste
      Exciting, the coffee struggles here with the aforementioned, in the spirit original fruit notes for dominance, while the latter but always lose fast, mango, pomegranate and even pineapple look only for fractions of a second, quite clear onset, then in the body but quite fragile, later also as in the nose the vegetable notes aubergine and zucchini, in addition to oiled leather, cumin, fennel, anise, rosemary, cumin, lavender and licorice
    • Finish
      Long, dark malt, leather and parchment, forest floor and saffron, some coffee grounds but more discreet
