  1. Immerenga scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    N: It´s like opening grandma´s old wooden cabinet. Heavy wood. Maybe some polish on it as well. And once you open, out come the lovely smells of all the sweets hidden in here

    M: Starts off really smooth but than comes around with some real edges there. It´s a sweet opening followed by something mineral like... Like cold ashes?! But not in a bad way. Well, maybe not too many edges after all, this is all I´m getting now

    F: The mineraly flavours linger on the tongue. There´s not realy much debth here. Not dry, not bitter, rather smooth but nothing exceptional. Medium long at best, if not rather short.

    Ripe, old malt. Especially in the nose.

      Smells like grandma's living room. Old wall unit. Furniture polish. Oranges and nuts on the table. Scouring milk in the air.
      After the first sip, sweetened with sweetened condensed milk and cream toffee. Beeswax.

      Mild and creamy to begin with. Sweet condensed milk. Toffee. Milk coffee. Light toasted aromas. Candied oranges. Walnuts.

    • Nose
      83 83
      the heavy sweetness rises immediately in the nose, 70s wall unit, then citrus, grapefruit, followed by notes of sherry, scouring milk
      After the first sip it becomes even sweeter and you can smell it too

    • Finish

      Taste goes 1: 1 into the finish
      medium long, pleasantly creamy
