  1. dominikbraun scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Without water, the alcohol has a clearly cooling effect on the nose. While not pungent, it overpowers the other flavors, which is why I add a few drops of water here.
    • Nose
      89 89
      The nose exhibits a surprisingly modern sherry profile with red fruit, furniture polish, fresh apples, leather and sage. Initially the aroma is a bit closed, but with more time and oxygen, strawberry jam, herbs and hints of raspberry tart and tropical fruits emerge. The oak wood is noticeable in the form of chocolaty-tart notes.

      Very modern, quite high quality and sufficiently complex. The alcoholic note can be controlled very well with a little water.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Red fruits, cherries, orange marmalade, peach and nutmeg are part of a vibrant interplay on the palate. A hint of furniture polish and dry oak wood are also added. Very high quality, but the distillery character doesn't have much room to maneuver with this cask influence.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Grape nut chocolate, espresso, sun-dried fruits and various spices - a very fruity and colorful finish that lingers for a long time. Delicious!

  2. grinface scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    What starts as a fight and with brutality on the nose is a soft and gentle mélange in the finish. Fascinating dram, well worth trying, if you get the chance.
