  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Great wine barrel maturation - successful combination with smoke. A great made, good, maybe a bit too expensive whisky!
    [Color] amber;
    • Nose
      wonderfully fruity, vanilla, sweetness, spices, pleasant smoky aromas;
    • Taste
      powerful, spicy, pepper, ginger, fruit (grapes, peach, orange); in the background smoke, some oak; mouth-filling;
    • Finish
      medium length, only a little smoke, peppery aftertaste;

  2. Cubey666 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    nice combination of the Sassicaia red wine casks and the peaty style of Benromach, really easy drinkable and highly enjoyable

    Balance (20)
    Not my whisky (81)
    • Nose
      The aroma is thick, sticky, wine ... warm, raw pastries with strawberry jam. Spices and wood, a little varnish ... having stood, yellow plums and milk chocolate appeared (21)
    • Taste
      Dry, spicy, wine sour and coffee with milk (20)
    • Finish
      Dry, woody, spicy finish with bitter ginger and grated stone seed, slightly menthol and berries ... barely perceptible smoke (20)
