  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Much better than 15yo cask rum for Denmark and Italy.
    Nice balance, nice complexity.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very powerful nose, on the solvent and sour candies.
      Light glue. Apricot, peach, quince. Lemon zest.
      Cold ash. Camphor. Fir.
      Green wood. Black pepper.
      Slight mineral side, mainly on chalk.
    • Taste
      88 88
      In the mouth the mineral takes over.
      Chalk, aspirin. Lemon zest, wet pebble.
      Light peat, hay.
      Wood, solvent. Toasted almonds. Ashes. Licorice, camphor.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish on cold ash, peat, lemon zest and black pepper. Camphor and honey.

    N- Quite a rare special release with only 324 bottles. Lemon meringue, sour rhurbab and berries compote that are both penetrating and sharps. Layered with smoky cocoa malt that carries the scents of mineral. Well zest, creamy runs of rum that are also ashy, smoky, as well the white pounded peppers. Light liquorice underlay that evolved to by-fragrant of citrus infuse toffee notes. Nice attacks of strength. (91/22)

    P- Explosive sweet bomb, solid and active. Vanilla Ice Cream with pinch of rock salt and crushed nuts. Oak-y and full with rising liquorice. (89/22)

    F- Long, creamy and spicy mouth coat, but get stiffened here and faded away. Deeply toasted nuance with trace of bitterness. (87/21)

    B/B- 88/22

    Cr- 3, Fr- 2, Fl- 1, Pt- 1, Ft- 1, Sp-0, Wd-3, Wn-2, Sc-2

    Weighted Rate- 87pt

  3. aphex scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Mineral and lemony. I like this kind of profile.
    • Nose
      Sour. Green apples, hessian, polish, pepper. Lemons. Whiffs of chalk. Reminds me of a few austere and mineral Springbank. With time, more lemons, zest and polish.
    • Taste
      Mineral and lemony. Big chalky notes, aspirin. Juicy and zesty lemons. Pepper. Liquorice.
      With water, ashes on the nose, palate is even more mineral and peppery.
    • Finish
      Long, lemony, sour and peppery.
