  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    He is too sweet for me. Not badly crafted, but it outshines some liqueurs.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Cotton candy with honey, so very sweet. Caramel and vanilla. Liquid toffifee (from Storck). You don't notice alcohol. No more flavors come, a little one-dimensional.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Extremely sweet honey, caramel, vanilla and again the association with toffifee, as there are also hazelnut flavors. Cotton candy. Creamy. A mixture of liqueur and rum. You can feel alcohol more than in the nose.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The sweetness remains long, burnt caramel, the brandy note also comes through to the end

  2. The_Independent scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    This is the sweetest whisky I have ever had in the glass. He would almost go through it as rum and seems quite unbalanced. You have to like that. Unfortunately, the special, spicy notes that I had hoped for from the finish (supposedly Brandy Cask) are a little too short for me.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Spicy, herbs, sawn wood, then deeper, sweet sherry, malt, forest honey and a little vanilla. The alcohol stings lightly in the nose.
      It becomes noticeably fruity with water - ripe peaches, honeydew melon and grape must. The herbal note gets a bit stronger.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Creamy, slightly tingling, then takes over the sweetness, lots of brown sugar, roasted almonds, forest honey, sugar beet syrup, malt, milk chocolate and some spice, but almost disappears.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is quite long. It leaves behind a nice bittersweet note, creamy coffee, notes and caramelized nuts. I like it very much.

  4. Dirk scored this whisky 84 points Super Administrator

    I really wanted to like this one but it is so sweet in the finish that I stopped drinking the dram. I like sweet whisky but this is just another level. Finished to long? But I guess people will like this.

    Stunning label, really great job!

    It is like a liquified dessert. Maybe a little over the top but I'm loving it :D
