3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points

  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Interesting nosing and nice sweet-spicy single malt in the taste (but not overly complex). I'm typing on American white oak by the barrel. Definitely water, then it opens up nicely.
    • Nose
      85 85
      fresh fruity sweetness; Citrus fruits; Caramel; overall very harmonious
    • Taste
      85 85
      full; Sweet; Honey; fruitiness; behind it clear oak flavors; increasingly tingling-spicy in the mouth
    • Finish
      84 84
      long; very spicy; clearly present oak flavors; slightly bitter-dry (pleasant)

  2. DocF scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    He only gets up with water. Malt, dry straw, freshly beaten wood, maybe some earth. Then something sweet, caramel, grapefruit also fits quite well, yes. Mouth - with water: Has been getting a fair amount of oak for 22 years. Tasty in polished, slightly spicy shape. Old coffee. Then malted, straw, lemon peel. Some mint, also vanilla pudding. Finish delicious. Not too short, not too bitter, fresh coffee, Holzapfel.

    Meets my expectations.
