  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    The nose is great, but also worries about dry and bitter notes, these are just counteracted by the sweetness, otherwise these incense tea whiskys anyway exactly mine, great part.
    • Nose
      It gets dark, caraway, nutmeg, cinnamon, dark honey, chestnuts, frankincense, hints of dried lovage, liquorice, cumin, camphor, lavender and stinging nettle, black cherries, very dry dates and leather, some dark chocolate, very old tobacco, later it almost becomes even drier and spice-smoker-heavy, a little truffle come to it
    • Taste
      Black cherry, truffle butter, licorice sweet, camphor, turmeric, cumin, lavender, old tobacco, dark honey, black walnut, rum raisins, dark chocolate, premium cocoa, old leather armchairs, mahogany cabinet, ancient port, frankincense, eucalyptus, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, caraway, Stollen, dry, but not too bitter and the sweetness balances the dryness still mostly beautiful
    • Finish
      Like a perfume, joss sticks, lavender, licorice, rose water, ginger, anise and truffles, cinnamon, dry nuts, long, warm

    Too much dark sherry and sulphur for my taste. I passed on 11-12-09 for a price of 120 Euro's
