  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    So for me he was the positive surprise at the Cadenhead Masterclass, of course he already had enough time to breathe there, which made his nose more pleasing. I would now devalue him minimally during the re-tasting (88P -> 87P). Still very neat.
    • Nose
      First the grain with its grainy sweetness gets into your nose, with nuts, a vinous overtone, cherry, vanilla, almond yogurt, a little glue, I let it breathe a little bit, yes with a little time in the glass, much better, whole milk chocolate Add to that the glue is gone and the alcohol is holding back, slightly floral
    • Taste
      full-bodied, straight grain, then immediately the Pinot Noir, nuts, roasted aromas fruity, cherry, in connection with the malty sweetness, chocolate, great mouthfeel, clearly he is still quite young, but that doesn't bother me here
    • Finish
      Nuts, hanuta, sticky, long-lasting, grapes, milk chocolate, creamy, nice finish

  5. ctu scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very nice young grain, the pinot noir spices well the oily sweet base. 85/86.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Earth, cooking oil, punch, yellow fruits and grain.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Powerful. Butter biscuits, brownie, caramel, stracciatella, tiramisu and massive spices.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, spicy and creamy.
