  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Finally, a comparatively young, smoky whisky from a sherry keg, which does not ranwanzt with sweet Hubba Bubba - notes. Well tuned, not too heavy, a very round thing. He would like to have 2, 3 Vol .-% more ...

      Here, the sherry barrel very dutifully provided its service and raisins, grapes, leather and dark chocolate introduced. In addition a peat smoke note, which nicely plays around the other flavors. The smoke is not only a nuance, but very present, a flickering campfire with peat soil, warming. Smoked ham, rosemary, sage, thyme.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Sweet smoky, mild onset. The smoke gives full throttle and clothes the entire mouth with warm, greasy smoke. Dried figs and raisins, overripe grapes, wood chips. Blackberry jam, blackcurrant. On the tongue there is also a spice, but it is more in the direction of pepper and a pinch of chilli spice.
    • Finish
      88 88
      In just medium length finish dry with still hefty smoke. Milk chocolate, espresso beans, yeast dough and raisins.
