  1. Big_Alex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A really good Stöffchen, strong harmonious smoke with great fruits. I like him very much.
    • Nose
      First, as expected, smoke and campfire. Then strong fruit flavors to bright fruits and green grapes are added. After some time I discover a touch of perfumed floor wax, as I know it from my school days.
    • Taste
      Hui, first peat and smoke, then honey and yellow fruit jam. Then comes oak and dark chocolate. Great power and intense aromas.
    • Finish
      Strong and harmonious finish, wonderfully warm and persistent.
