  1. FineSpirits_butler1 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Absolutely well-balanced.

    Many 'forest' aromas with pinecone and french brandy - really a healing drink.

    Very high cask-quality - perfectly matured.

    Colour: noble paleness with hints of green; 

    a remarkable whisky, medical spirit for the soul

    Tasting with FineSpirits_butler1
    • Nose
      strong smoke flavor, behind peat and coniferous forest, pinecone, earthy, parslay root, distinct saltyness, tannin flavors, distant sweet fruits (mirabelle, cherry (jelly), grapes), mandarins, yarrow (like something you could smell in the bathroom, franz spirits, shower gel), leatherette
    • Taste
      wood, salt, somewhat rough at the beginning, but turns out very smooth, sweetness, soft praline, brandy bean, chocolate cookie, peat, fire, warm glow, cooked vegetables: kohlrabi, celery; sour, hints of morello, tanginess, a little smoke, spice sharpness (parslay root), light fruit bitterness
    • Finish
      elegant finish (medium), apple, wood, radish, spices, vegetables, chocolate with cookie, peat, much from the taste remains, in the end some earthy peat with some fruit
