  1. Moritz scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    For me personally the best batch so far, especially a brilliant nose! ( "Chocolate Monster")
    Notes without water.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Chocolate, chocolate and chocolate. Rather dark, the alcohol is there, but not overly dominant.
      Strong sweetness comes to it, dark fruit, raisins. After a while, a touch of orange.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Violent start, but despite almost 60% not unpleasant alcoholic - the sweetness is dominant, syrupy. Light mint note with lots of chocolate towards the finish.
      Not quite as complex as the nose, but very delicious.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Flowing transition with the chocolate again clearly dominates in the finish. Stimulates the flow of saliva and remains with a subtle sweetness.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N- Quite lovely Batch 2 from a wee tasting months ago. This B3 comes along with quite different composition, while PX and Olorosso still in the blood stream, they have replaced the Virgin Oak in B2 with 1st Filled Sherry for this one. All sherry affair with well balanced of OS and PX interchanging swiftly with deep nutty oiliness. At 58.2%, my nose are up for a sensational treats with toffee smokes, cocoa powder, wood shaves fragrant. Various sugar coated danish pastries with cinnamon powder, sticky and inviting. (88/22)

    P- Full and rounded. Juicy strength and ripe fruits sweetness oozing in the oak-y sphere, toffee, bitter treacle and echoing charred notes. Feeling the weight on the nose. (89/22)

    F- Medium long, frizzy spicy coat lasted overtimes. Chewy, ripe tannnin, sticky sweet with more dried fruits delivery at the tail. (86/20)

    B/B- 89/22

    Weighted Rate- 86pt. Young and lively B2 ; Mellow with depth in B3.

    Cr-2, Fr-2, Fl-0, Pt-0, Ft-2, Sp-0, Wd-3, Wn-3, Sc-3

  4. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Rated diluted to about 52% with some water. Very successful, round filling.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Dark chocolate, orange, dark fruits, Christmas spices
    • Taste
      87 87
      What is already noticeable on the nose can also be found on the palate. Creamy.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, finally the oak remains (spices and dark chocolate)

  5. DerDennis! scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    For me this is the best batch of the 10s so far. Despite the high alcohol content, nothing stings in the nose and it is easy to drink, even without water.
