    He has something. And that's not just because the barrel has done a lot of work and has left its mark on the whisky more than clearly.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A lot comes through here from the barrel - and I think I can perceive a touch of sulfur. Musty, musty, wet wood, damp cellar. Overripe grapes, raisins, dried dates. Not sanded smooth, but angular and demanding. It demands attention. Muff and mold disappear after a while and reveal the "view" of floral and fruity notes.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Malty start. Not too strong at all, although 54.3% are not a child of sadness. Seasoning, liquorice, raisins, dried figs. Less mold than in the nose, but also shows teeth on the tongue, brings a lot of barrel influence. Almonds, hazelnuts.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Remains barrel-emphasized and spicy. Still liquorice, now with pepper and paprika spices, nutmeg. Sweet raisins.

  4. tangtang scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite an interesting combination of flavors. Strong and somewhat impetuous. Only the chemical note in the nose does not appeal. The alcohol is not so well integrated, which of course can be due to the young age.
    • Nose
      At first there is a slightly chemical note, then it changes into fruity and slightly sweet, a brief hint of foliage odor, a little alcoholic, dried fruit, a little caramel, berries, light herbs and floral notes
    • Taste
      very spicy start, a lot of sherry and raisins, getting hot, dried fruits, also here a little sweetness and the caramel paired with honey, slightly chocolaty, getting oily nutty
    • Finish
      spicy with sherry and slightly nutty. Some citrus fruits. Medium to long.
