  1. Cheesehut-Fellows scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Thx Jay for this crazy sh. Deep as a canyon, jumping between Demerara Rum, Grain and old sherried Springbank in great balance and maturity.
    Among the best grains.

    Was at the same tasting with Jay ... can only join me !!! Block malt, bronchial on brown sugar, Aachener Pflümli and a whole market stall of the finest herbs ... unbelievable stuff!

    Bester Grain ever...

  4. chichibufan scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Incredible smooth, rich, full bodied. An endless long finish, creamy textures. The best grain i ever had the chance to try.

  5. Holle525 scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    An absolute Hammer Grain, which could be matured due to its tropical color quite tropical. The nose is very reminiscent of the old Demerara bottlings from Velier. He has an extremely rich body with lots of bums. Nevertheless, he is very balanced without bitterness. Oustanding and incomparable!
