  1. Mascht scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    extremely sweet Port notes, something for those with a sweet tooth
    • Nose
      89 89
      mouth-filling, intense sweet and dark, with oily smoke, reminiscent of rum, maple syrup, white chocolate mineral and sawdust, a hint of apple cider vinegar
    • Taste
      88 88
      Heavy sweetness, almost like a liqueur, again hulls, acacia honey, in addition very spicy after cardamom and lacquer crack and heather
    • Finish
      89 89
      stay very long, tannins and honey sweetness

  2. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: red fruit, a little malt, caramel sweetness, light spices, apple, cinnamon

    Taste: velvety, red fruit, very subtle smoke, oak tannins

    Finish: medium to long, nice intensity, fruits, roses, tannins

    with water: No, it fits perfectly

    Conclusion: nice bottling that takes some time in the glass for the aromas to develop
