  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    very interesting in a positive sense!
    wow I like it, the barrel did a good job
    if the price is right a candidate to buy
    • Nose
      the alcohol tingles a little, old leather increases, red berries, slightly vanilla becomes stronger, a smoky note, dark, slightly gum, slightly banana, chocolate 65%, nuts, currant, slightly metal, oak, a strange note that I do not name can
      late dark caramel
      with water: brown apple, slightly soapy, becomes sweet, more vanilla, cinnamon, more oak
    • Taste
      full and strong on the palate
      dark caramel, oak, slightly spicy, a smoky note, ham, herbal candy (these hard ones), cardamon, cinnamon, cola
      with water: softer, more bitter, more herbs, nuts (could be walnut)
    • Finish
      light oak, leather, ham, warm, tart herbs, slightly astringent
      with water: cinnamon, cardamon, dried herbs, lots of oak, bitter

  2. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

      Forest berry jam, blackberries, really sticky berry syrup, honey, lime, nuts, some coffee, light wood, light pepper

    Not a bad malt in itself for its age. But the citrus-heavy undertone bothers me a bit.

  5. Bam scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    The influence of wine is rather subtle, overall very dry and dry whisky.
    • Nose
      A lot of 'green' aromas determine the nose, green apples, aloe vera, tomato plants and various garden herbs. Only with a few drops of water do the wine aromas come out, red berries, blood oranges and dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      Strong onset, oily / silky mouthfeel. Sweet apples and candied lemon, then dark chocolate, quite bitter. Currants, nuts.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Very dry out the back, lots of espresso, and roasted nuts. Some menthol.
