  1. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Balanced, even, with the aroma of banana pudding, sherry freshness, dried apricots, grapes, white currants and caramel, sweet-sour taste with tones of red apples, jam from sour berries, wet wood and dried fruit, a finish of pepper and malt with a light bitterness, a touch of chocolate , tree and sherry.
    Very tasty, fresh and sherry. The balance is at a height that develops in the glass evenly and confidently. Nothing is lost from time to time.

    RATING: 87pts - [n22, t21, f22, b22] → | 86-89: Remarkable |

  7. dRambo scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    Thin, fruitiness as diluted, gammelig - almost a chewy prickling on the tongue - like foul fruit. Bitter notes. almost not drinkable

  8. Mapl scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The problem with the 15 year old is the big difference between different batches. Anything from 80 to 90 points is possible.

  10. Highlander65 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      The nose begins with very (too?) Ripe sweet fruit, then comes out a good marzipan. It pinches a little too much for only 46% alcohol
    • Taste
      On the palate it is sweet and creamy, dense, custard, some slightly spicy notes. as on the nose also on the tongue tends to burn a little too much
    • Finish
      Medium-lasting, sweet finish. Discreet
