  1. Bosi scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    The name says it all: Anyone who likes such strong, diverse whiskys is in the right place with this bottling. Those who like well-composed, harmonious whiskys should go further. It's all a bit too wild for me.
    • Nose
      An interesting sweet smoke immediately rises to the nose. Once you've survived this onslaught, notes of liquorice, vanilla, garden herbs and pickled salmon appear.
    • Taste
      The title of the bottling doesn't promise too much. This is a very nice board: the smoke turns towards ashes and there are aromas of lime, sour apple, vanilla sweetness and even a little vinegar.
    • Finish
      The finish is not as long as the taste suggests. The whisky tingles peppery on the tip of the tongue and some fruit acid remains.
