    Always a pleasure. I may have had better batches, but the 2017 bottling also lives up to expectations. Thanks to the positive experiences of the past, these are much higher than you might think at 30 € for a liter.

  7. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur


    N: Instantly disappointing, this batch appears a little younger/more spirity.

    T: Unpleasant chemical arrival. Both this and the 2017 release end up in the same ballpark, but whilst the older bottle goes through a few gear changes, this one simply burns from the off and out to the finish.

    F: On par with Famous Grouse.

    C: This hasn’t significantly improved after 3 months which was the hope and I think I’ve drunk too much to send it back [1/3]. I’ll have to write a letter. Score-wise, we are provisionally looking at around 78 [at the most?].

    I have been waiting for this one a while. Neck pore, and i let it air out 1 hour befor tasting no ice no water. Nexst is with water
    • Nose
      Afther 1 hour it coms down and get the oloroso sherry dark frut stuff with the glenfrclas clean spirrit (fore those who have tryed it) lovly spisy smell in the end. 1 teespoon of water: more fruty and spisy,more oak,sitrus, pepper
    • Taste
      Dark frut like oloroso give you dark Plum and drapes witout the dryness because the ex-bourben give a Nice hot chilli finnish with some oak lovely. 1 teespoon water: oak is stronger dark Plum and drapes long lasting takes over by an oak chilli flaver with long lasting finnish. Good Stuff
    • Finish
      Long lasting chilli flaver with water and witout, watery full bodied and wonderfull. Og you like strong food, if you dont i wont recomend this one.
