  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    He's just slipping past the danger of being overpowered by the dry tea-tobacco notes, but just grabs it that way, that's why the 90P, because it's just very tasty and deep otherwise.
    • Nose
      Pure, dark cocoa powder, very promising, some balsamic, dates, black tea, old leather, black walnut, tobacco, dry Oloroso notes, rosemary, clove, chestnut, lavender, dark chocolate, camphor, hints of black pepper, hints of cumin, dry raisins
    • Taste
      Also here pure, liquid fine cocoa, black cherry, blood orange, noble, old leather, noble oak, chestnut, black tea with honey, cumin, black walnut, pumpernickel, dry tobacco leaves
    • Finish
      Still very dry, tobacco, nuts, a little olive, chestnut, cocoa, long

  2. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A super nose, but in the mouth and just in the very bitter and at the end musty finish he leaves to ... too much wood, seems a bit superimposed
    • Nose
      91 91
      a full load of cherries, amaretto and marzipan, as well as rum raisins, gradually add darker flavors such as leather, wood, plums and candied dates. The alcohol is perfectly integrated, also some spices (cloves) show up, the wood gets stronger, balsamic vinegar, tobacco
    • Taste
      89 89
      Good start, lots of wood, sherry, cloves, leather
    • Finish
      86 86
      long, thick sherry, balsamic vine, a lot of wood behind, gets very bitter, even musty

  3. Noface83 scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    What a roller coaster ride and great experience but unfortunately too little for a bottle purchase. Too bad but came 3-5 years late in the bottle. Otherwise would have been a 90+ candidate.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Nose: Wood, balsamic vinegar (including acidity), olives and dates, dry nutty Oloroso note, leather and tobacco, clove and some pepper. Strangely, the flavors flatten over time and despite only 41.3%, some alcohol comes out. Very good nose but initially more complex than it can hold.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Gentle and supple, wood and tannins, old dusty board, some raisin buns and dark sugar syrup. Tobacco leaves and tea bitterness. Fantastic taste - it suggests wood already heavily but the other flavors can still arrive against it and ensure an extraordinary taste.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long finish with thickened Oloroso, a lot of syrup sweetness, again towards the end olives and nut mixture, always a strong woody bitterness. At the very end only old gammel remains - the taste stays forever and does not want to go away. Clearly superimposed. Begins great but ends unfortunately on a false mark.

  4. Psyk0man scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The thing consists of tobacco and wall unit.

    I like it.

    The nose flattens quickly.

    All in all, I think that certainly not everyone will like him.
