  1. theograph scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Syrup and charcoal, very nice. Truly a taste dualism. Sweet and spicy. An exciting whisky.

    Tasted as a sample. The first time you pull the nose undiluted, it stings very strongly in the nose. You can feel the 57.4%. Except for cooling mint, little comes through. Opens up really big by dilution with water and shows its potential in smell and taste. Very round and pleasant taste. It shows itself really diverse. The smell and finish are also good, but they don't convince me like the taste. Above all, the short finish bothers me a little.

    The nose is really nice, smells like sweet treacle but unfortunately there is some sulphur in this one, which spoils things a little for me and it is also a little rough, lack balance but I am sure some will love this, saying that it is tasty enough for 85 points, the finish even with water added is on the harsh side.
