  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Sweet, spicy, pleasant sharpness. Nice mouthfeel and very long finish. He does not need water.

    But with water it becomes sweeter, more fruity and tastier. He has a lot of potential.

  2. LDB scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Totally balanced and superb for 20 years! Fruity, spicy, oily, what more could you want?

      At the same time tender and spicy.
      A little glue when the trunk is in the snifter, further away it translates into a veritable fruit basket, fragrant and with flat peach perfume. Delicious!

      Spicy, richly oily, and fruity-round, later very light grapefruit bitterness.
      But there is nothing to complain about.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Dry white wine, light grape juice.
      Lemon oil.
