  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful PX smoker, with no blemishes.

      Direct classic Rauch plus PX, creamy, milk chocolate, light spice that goes with the smoke, bacon, that's what a Sherry Islay smoker must smell, rather sweet grapes than raisins, the smoke has a good intensity and a few nuts are also added in addition, slightly maritime, I have to think of Laphroaig all the time
      After the first sip, the nose really opens again, again more intense, creamy, lots of chocolate, the smoke has something of a campfire

      nice, intense, good start, cinnamon smoke, nice PX sweetness, here more raisins, some chocolate, some oak, yes here I think of Laphroaig. nice mouthfeel, you get exactly what you expected, the second sip I have a little salt on the tip of my tongue

      sweet, sticky, the smoke keeps up well, but the sweetness dominates everything, over time the leaf turns in favor of the smoke, nuts, getting a little drier, grape skin
      with the second sip, much more chocolaty at the back, but then it changes to the pattern already described for the first sip
