  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Really nice, exactly my thing, I like sweet whiskys and the PX brings exactly that last touch, surprisingly intense in the mouth despite the "low" alcohol content
    • Nose
      sweet smoke comes up to you, very pleasant, light spice, vanilla, a breeze of cinnamon, some malt, honey, the fruit gives me a quick kiwi, light acidity, ripe apple, you can tell a bit that it is not that old , a little citrus, therefore fresh and overall rather light, by no means strong PX influence, with a little time the PX influence comes through better, a slightly chocolatey overtone is added, actually now also a little espresso, time is good for him, now I have I compare it directly with the STR Small Batch for Belgium and in comparison it smells like syrup ;-)
    • Taste
      creamy, oily, sweet, slightly effervescent, fruity, here too apple rather than raisins, dark chocolate, very lightly floral, a hint of perfume, wood, cinnamon, ashy smoke, intense, a breeze of salt, nuts, then sultanas after a second sip , the PX now gets through better and displaces the bourbon cask, better than the first sip, the perfume is also not as intense, I really like it now
    • Finish
      Nuts, light smoke, malt, bittersweet, nice oak note, light spice, fruit on the palate, pleasantly fading, medium length

    Still quite young on the way. The contribution of the PX Sherry is not really noticeable yet ...
    • Nose

      Very fruity with apricots, yellow apples, honey and vanilla. Restrained smoke that blends well with the fruit, but stays in the background. More and more fruits are peeling out, now also banana and mango. A nice fruit salad, the bourbon barrel prevails in the nose.

      Lies dry and with significantly more smoke than you can imagine on the tongue. At first contact it looks rather young and green, with green apple and freshly bark-free branches. Biscuit dough, oat biscuits, nut brittle, nutmeg. Intense, greasy smoky note. Some warm tar.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Relatively short, dry finish. Cut grass, pear, coffee powder. The smoke is still present, in the end the one who closes the door.
