    A high-tension whiskey that offers a lot to discover.
    • Nose
      Wow! Gorgeous sweet and fruity. Intense yet very mild nose. Sticky dates. In addition dark wood and leather notes. Cocoa. Extremely varied and exciting.
    • Taste
      Creamy soft. But also surprisingly dry. Lots of spicy oak and sour leather. Then a lot of dark chocolate. A few strong plums. In my opinion one tastes the old age and the exciting composition of the barrels.
    • Finish
      The finish is not quite as long due to the rather low alcohol content. But it is aromatic and delicious with cocoa and oak.

    [April, 2000]  I had another dram during a "Taste the difference" tasting at
    Rolandsbogen. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 80
    points.  My notes state a nose with a strong apple aroma.

    [October, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg.  In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this dram 82,5.  Unfortunately no additional notes were taken.

  8. Andytka3 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose:-
    Gentle caramel and orange pulps first, layered with whiff of dark
    fruits in the middle, some airy and light barley husks, nutty. Breath
    deep for the fresh plums and bourbon characters.

    Palate:- Delicate mouthfeel, lightly spiced with cinnamon sweet flowing on the palate, matured and rounded.

    Finish:- Dry and deep, bitter chocolate and a touch of spicy spice. Hint of warm, short-medium length.

    — at The Whiskey Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
