    Quite ordinary and wobbly, one of the worst in the series.

  4. 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.

  5. Jnpons scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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

  6. sagara-kun scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    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.
