    • Nose
      90 90
      Voluminous, Full, Rich
      Sweet
      Distinct barrel aroma, sherry
      ... the fruit comes over time, even dry fruits ...
      Dried orange peel, light scent of spices
      Alcohol is noticeable ...
      He has a bit of a dirty, coastal whisky with character
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong start!
      Sweet, creamy and herbal ....
      What a start!
      Slight bitterness on the barrel, nice spiciness, liquorice, licorice
      Wet wood planks, flint, burnt raisins
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, slightly bitter, spicy and pleasantly mild towards the end

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I had high expectations that were not 100% fulfilled. Nevertheless, a good whisky, which I probably would not buy with but for the price called.
    • Nose
      89 89
      the first note that I can take, and that took a while, is marzipan, then quite clear, almonds, slight sweetness, but also acidity, light roasted aromas, a little yogurt, the roasted aromas become more dominant over time, as well Milk chocolate, after the first sip, fresher, clear raspberry
    • Taste
      89 89
      oily, creamy, sweet, roasted aromas, walnut, white chocolate ganache, red fruit, light acidity, tingling, some caramel, tobacco, slightly dirty, medicinal, light towards iodine, sounds worse than it is, but I miss the better one paraphrase
    • Finish
      87 87
      burned caramel, almond, marzipan, fruit bowl, raspberry, slightly metallic, warming, medium-long
