  1. aphex scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very good nose, simpler and oaky palate. Water helps though. Not my favorite profile but a good madeira maturation nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Leathery, fruity and spicy. Peaches, plums, red berries. Hints of ashes. Mineral notes. Hessian. Wet clothes.
    • Taste
      Fruits from the nose, pepper, nuts and a few ashes. Oaky.
      With water, more red berries on the nose. The oak is tamed and the palate is more juicy.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky, peppery, smoky. Mentholated notes.

    Color: aged gold, deep, mahogany reflection.

    Nose: well integrated alcohol, red fruit, grilled malt, these distillates remind me of Japanese blends ...

    Palate: the palate catches up with the fairly light, even non-existent nose, so much so that it makes us forget it .... vigorous, fruity, very good.

    Final: flat for the nose

    The first in the 15yo series that I taste.
    And it starts pretty well.
    • Nose
      90 90
      The nose is very shiny. Very nice.
      Fruity above all, on yellow fruits. Apricot, peach, a little plum. Quite distinctly a touch of kiwi.
      We also have a very nice mineral approach. Wet pebble, which paradoxically, evolves on the wet dog.
      A little ashtray forgotten on the balcony.
      A bit of solvent and green wood.
    • Taste
      89 89
      In the mouth it is a little less complex than in the nose.
      We always have the yellow fruit, accompanied by a little fresh almond and hazelnut.
      Rain, new wood. Always smoke in the background.
      It's round, oily.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long and woody finish, slightly astringent.
      Banana, smoke, Mentos candy.
