  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    This is not particularly my cup of tea - dark fruit, but a slightly sour taste. Interesting though.
    • Nose
      Sour cherries
    • Taste
      Fruity, with a sour end note, almost like yogurt.
    • Finish
      Lingers for longer than I wanted.

  2. keizerjos scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This remarkably good Swedish whisky is probably not from the barrel, only golden yellow against the brown with a ruby red edge. Something from an E number will have been used, perhaps two.
    That should not spoil the fun. Powerful, sweet chocolate aromas and a sassy sour edge make this a party in the mouth. Don't come for subtle, faint accents of sandalwood, ambrosia and candied lark sweetbreads (and yes, I'm very proud of them) - that kind of nonsense, those Swedes don't do to that. Fat, fat sherry casks with thick, fat sherry maturing, that should be enough. Lakes, trees, Ikea and Berg. I'm a fan.

  3. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Dark berries combined with light alcohol notes, plus prunes, cherries and licorice. The sherry is very present. Unfortunately, the finish is a bit flat.
