  2. dr.mad scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    a very nice drink, but if I could have tasted it before purchase I would have left it
    • Nose
      80 80
      you meet a sweet, brackish scent that reveals little about what is going to happen
    • Taste
      86 86
      in any case there is more than enough alcohol in it, a little dry the barrel has done enough
    • Finish
      87 87
      peat and port fight for dominance and traditionally never come out. but it's not about the destination it's about the journey and it's always a good combination

  3. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      84 84
      At first rather closed, slightly sweet, with warmth clearly more alcoholic. Strawberries, other red fruits, subtle smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet in the mouth, red fruits again, some grain, very light smoke. Alcohol bites firmly on the tongue, you should play with water until the right alcohol content is found.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-length finish, without new facets.

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The 60% can be felt well. He needs water. Raspberries and red currants in yogurt. Subtle herbal smoke. Wooden tobacco box. A bit of wet wood. Sour wine notes.
    With water it is closed and too rough. It opens with water and becomes softer.
    It's pretty good. Somehow it lacks the depth.

  5. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose

    • Taste
      89 89
      Tobacco smoke, red fruits, sweetness, oak
    • Finish
      89 89
