  1. Lovespring scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Much underrated in my view..

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very interesting bottling, with quite some wood influence on what I assess as a rather clean spirit. The oak delivers spiciness, but also quite some bitterness that is just over the edge to my taste. Others may like it though.
    • Nose
      Extremely mineral and herbal: wet stones on the beach, cut grass, mint, green apple, vanilla, cereals with vanilla cream. Later, caramel joins the party, along unripe pineapple. Still, there's a clear dominance of the fresh and sour side. Water releases the effect of the wood: vanilla, sawdust and soft spices.
    • Taste
      Much sweeter, and hotter than expected, full of spices (clove, nutmeg), vanilla, rich barley and herbs. The fruity elements are more on the dried side: figs, plums and dried apple. The oak delivers a level of bitterness that not everybody will appreciate. I think it's a bit too much: almost cloying. 
    • Finish
      Warming and spicy, but again on the bitter side, like walnut skin. It's better than on the palate though.
