  1. penumbra scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Unlike the past students who are partial to majors, although they are single barrels, they are more powerful than today's blending. The high-level face in whisky.
    • Nose
      Like a chimera of Genting King and Honey Rum. There are not many wood elements, but you can imagine the old barrels, mahogany furniture, walnuts, reddish brown leather goods, a bit of dirty grease in it, Italian vinaigrette, wood lacquer, a little hummus With Texas roast beef, the direction of peat is incense, hemp rope and barbecue. It is too sweet under the influence of Sherry Cask, honey, HP-style sherry, 35% chocolate, dry black fruit jam, nine-made plum, cough syrup. When I wake up a little, delicious oil and milk aromas emerge, all kinds of spices, raw beef chestnuts, and coconut oil, which are incredibly fragrant.
    • Taste
      Oceanic fino Shirley. Rhubarb, ginkgo fruit, nettle, mint, coffee, honey, oil with cooling, honey and traditional Chinese medicine, mutual restraint, all behave very calmly. Chocolate, caramel, sea salt, black pepper, roasted seeds and nuts, Shirley's dark fruit, dried figs, tangerine peel, vanilla, complex and balanced.
      Strong, good fat, suitable sweetness, no acid, no astringency, bitterness, no pungency.
    • Finish
      Long-term, coffee, salt, fino, black pepper, cheese.

    Grandiose malt, something behind Cask 443 ...

    It is "little redder" than the cask 443 sitting next to it. It's not as dark as the main picture here suggests. maybe it's the lighting and the backgroud.
