  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A fun, very scalable and changeable dram in the glass.
    Ventilation is essential, it was a little closed once in the glass. Definitely a big sherry.
    Unfortunately a little sulfur on the palate, but I hope that it evolves with the aeration of the bottle.
    The "espresso" finish really charmed me.

      The nose is mainly on dried fruits. Corinthian grapes, and a nice dose of prunes. But also almonds, macadamia nuts.
      We have a slight metallic side, mixed with candied plum.
      Toffee, black pepper, well integrated oak and light oily leather. A mixture that works well.
      We also have a light skin of black muscat. And gradually, a little molasses, aged Puerh in a humid cellar.

      It's intense, focused. The ventilation in the glass does it a lot of good. Curious to see what it will look like in a few months once the bottle has been aired.
    • Taste

      In the mouth, this is also powerful and concentrated.
      The prune comes out ahead, with a little bitumen, of a burnt tire. It is slightly sulfur.
      We have a lot of spices, pepper, wood, dark chocolate, coffee, cloves, cardamom, ginger ...
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long finish on freshly ground coffee bean, dark chocolate, oily leather, black peppercorns, wood, enscense (with a light smoke). It is really pretty.
