  1. dRambo scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    geiler shit - remember the 5 years - means at least 5 years in the barrel - feels like 18 ++ with older shares
    • Nose
      89 89
      a whole basket of yellow fruits, very sweet, crystalline flowers, jasmine, sweet lilac, vanilla, fennel, fragrant toasted green wood, warm honey, biscuit, dried pineapple and mango - ripe, round, noble, deliciously tempting, liquid dessert - alcohol perfectly integrated
    • Taste
      88 88
      soft, delicate, old spine, delicate paper note - he has no more OBF - then mint and spice from fresh wood, herbs, pepper, resin - as a counterpole - lemon, dried date, orange peel, marzipan, vanilla pudding
    • Finish
      88 88
      fine-dry, medium, soup vegetables, twigs, pepper, old wood, tobacco, green pepper, chocolate, liquorice

  3. alectron scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      faint old style mustyness in the beginning, but dissapears very fast (84). Then a lot of fresh/bright oak, honey, cereal & grains, somewhat grassy/floral,. (77)
    • Taste
      sweet, somewhat thin, bright oak, malty, vanilla, grassy/plant-y. (78)
    • Finish
      turning bitter & dry with oak and some cardboard/cellulose; some malt, vanilla, cinnamon, white chocolate & smoke in the back, but dry- & bitterness dominates. (74)
