  1. Martin_NL scored this whisky 79 points Member Junior

    alcohol dominates in nose and palate, also with water, much spiciness and wood, some sweetness with honey, a little bit boring.

  3. LeChiffre scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Powerful single cask highland park that can handle water. Then he opens up and shows delicious aromas of red berries and a nice spiciness. Overall, he lacks a bit of complexity. He can not hide the "only" 10 years of maturity. Overall delicious but the price is not quite right for the price.

      Pur: Here dominates the alcohol. With a good shot of water: Now he opens up clearly. Something cotton candy, a little coffee and a subtle smell of smoked pours into the nose. All very easy.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Pur: It's admittedly too intense for me. Again, the alcohol kills everything to taste, except a wood note. With a good shot of water: Amazing how this malt turns on. At the beginning ripe sweet raspberries come to the fore, which are then replaced by wood, chocolate and a subtle smoke. Of course, when he's ten years old, he's not terribly complex, but this taste of dark chocolate with dried raspberries during a BBQ is just great.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish is short to medium, also pure. With a good dash of water: The wood notes remain lying on the tongue (did not think that American Oak is capable of) and the aftertaste of really good dark chocolate with a little pepper left a satisfied feeling.
