  1. rottendon scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Phew, difficult. The nose was with the general timidity and especially this interim Ekelnote really no revelation, but he was in the mouth just great. In any case, a very individual Malt, that's for sure.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    The alcohol here is really incredibly well integrated, he is strong, it was clear, but I would have estimated him to a good 5% less. That it was a laddie, did not surprise me again, fits now to the alcohol integration.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Grass, a little bit of menthol, light acidity and tingling alcohol. In addition, garlic, sweat, candied pineapple and cooked peaches. Heats up more menthol and alcohol, as well as a lump of rancid wax or any spoiled milk product that fortunately does not last long. Then take the peaches & Co. back the field. Overall, the nose is very closed and timid.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very sweet, almost sticky with a load of honey in front, followed by chocolate, then the alcohol pushes quite powerfully and brings with it herbs and a good portion of salt. Menthol to the back. The mouthfeel is very dense and oily. The second sip becomes even saltier, to the rear now slightly sour.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The Departure is defined by the menthol, which does not hold too intense, but quite a long time on the palate. The chest cavity is significantly warmed.
