  1. dramspotter did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes: Take off your slippers, the open fire has nearly gone out but the embers are still glowing. Everything which needed to be said has already been said, so light up a cigar and let the day come slowly to an end. Big and powerful it almost takes your breath away as you savour your last one before bed. Water added toasted almonds, cinnamon rolls, ginger cake, chilli chocolate and Turkish coffee on the nose but still powerful on the palate with herbal, tangy and rich dry fruit cake. Yet right at the end there is the sweetness of the chocolate waiting on your pillow.

  3. aspa scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Smells super sweet, like liquid cake. Sherry, chocolate, marshmallow, spices, a little alcohol you notice the young age. The same in the mouth, but softer, all very well integrated, snails like 20 years or so. Chocolate with spices or dark chocolate with chilli?
    Long finish with pepper and spices.

    N-92, T-89, F-88, very good 90 points
