  1. Lorion scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    World class! Blossoming is always good ... But in 2006 it was apparently something completely different. Terrific. 93/94 points.
    • Nose
      I am in the whisky heaven. Dried plums, sticky, intense. Matching Christmas spices, a hint of gingerbread and aromatic and raw cinnamon. Old and leathery aromas, I see myself in an old library with dusty corners, but also musty places. Black cherry, cooked in viscous groats. In addition cherries that were forgotten during the harvest. Half rotten, half dried up. In general, this is a fascinating combination that is on the nose. On the one hand the nose looks old and dusty, on the other hand there are these heavy, musty, sweet elements. It must be an old sherry barrel whisky. Lovage and some pine needles. Hazelnuts. Simply world class!
    • Taste
      Sweet. Cherry juice. Sweet leather. Aromatic oak is also there immediately. Incredibly soft. So sweet. Herbs, fried with sugar. Milk chocolate. Fermented fruit. Raisins. Hazelnut shell. The taste is sticky, sweet and musty. A film slowly forms and it gets a little drier. The mouth is covered with a leathery fur.
    • Finish
      Leathery, long, warm (in the mouth, not in the throat), spicy. Dark chocolate, not really bitter. Great!
