  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    First some fruits, then the smell of conifers comes in, like I've just done my annual conifers cutting session.
    In the body there's some drop, sal ammoniac and licorice accompanied by some prunes.
    Not bad but it might need some more time to mature.

    • Nose
      Colour:
      Bright, shiny gold

      Nose:
      Surprisingly starts with red apples, some herbs and vegetable broth. I think the nose is actually very pleasant now. In the background I find cherries and raisins. But has something modriges. Something like a wet cellar. If you leave something to colleagues, the young age will come through. Sour plums and orange. Both pretty immature. Wet cardboard box.
    • Taste
      Aha ... it tastes pretty sprightly. Plum brandy with anise. Braised leather. Caraway and moldy fruit. A slight hint of smoke. Toasted malt, or sunflower seeds, or something. The wet cardboard is also found in the taste.
    • Finish
      Short to medium. Very peppery. Nutty bitterness. I can not get rid of this stewed leather taste. He stays until the end.

  5. Archer scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    Ahem, no. The very first impression in the nose he makes with great success on the tongue and finish on the finish. Luckily it was just a sample.
    • Nose
      74 74
      Clear fruit note with canned mandarins, orange, lemon juice. In addition fresh cut flowers and a little vanilla flavor. Slightly metallic, a touch of new make.
    • Taste
      73 73
      Just removed from the bark young branches, a hint of cork taste. Very dry. Hardly any fruit, woody and kräutrige notes prevail. The cork taste continues and increasingly determines the taste.
    • Finish
      73 73
      Short, dry and corky.
