  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    What to say about this bottling: it's smooth. Not a qualification I'd normally use for a whisky, but there's just not that much more to say about this. Not offensive in any way, no real character either. This would really, really benefit A LOT from a better presentation: get rid of the chill filtration, colouring and low ABV please.

  3. Malzbrenner scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The windows let expect some volume, the color is auspicious. When he first crawls in, he is still promising, but in terms of taste and in the finish, he unfortunately lets up.

      Raisins, sherry, roasted almonds, light oak, some caramel and vanilla are to be heard. Amazingly, a slightly dry - grassy touch
    • Taste
      84 84
      A strange touch of shower gel is on the first taste on the tongue, then a delicate sherry note, some vanilla, malt and orange. He looks very round and soft
    • Finish
      81 81
      short medium length, a little sherry, which flies relatively fast, light sweetness and a little malt remain

    Aroma: sweet raisins, a variety of nuts which are dominated by walnut and rotten (!), Dry grains, dusty sacking, exotic fruits with rotten, burnt caramel, cocoa with milk, buckwheat honey, tobacco leaf, noble wood, humidor, notes of spice for clay tea, tobacco leaves (cinnamon, cloves, orange peel). Quite a complex, but delicate flavor, slowly opening up.

    Taste: burnt caramel, thick berry jam, hay walnuts, sweet spectrum spices, chocolate notes, wood tannins. Quite simply and delicately, but harmoniously and organically.

    Finish: light spices that taste like anise, coffee with milk, walnut partitions, pleasant wood, a little shorter than the average.
