  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A very interesting whisky. In one part it is very woody and shows its age. In the other part, he sometimes looks young and immature. Cool interplay. Definitely no dram for every day. The colleague wants and must be discovered.
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Bright, shiny gold

      Nose:
      For me it starts with a lot of dry wood and a hint of liquorice. Behind it comes a dried honeydew melon and sweet vanilla. Dried apricots and peaches. It's getting dustier and more dusty. With a little time in the glass, the colleague always looks more citrus fruity. I would say pomelo here again. Something between lemon and grapefruit. With a little time in the glass, dry white wine aromas come through. Green grapes, slightly mineral and dry wheat.
    • Taste
      Spicy start. Then somehow flower aromas and a slightly bitter, dry nuttiness. A lot of wood is also at the start here. The light fruit aromas are sometimes a bit unripe. Decent citrus load. In addition a little coconut and a fine, creamy character. Significantly more mineral in the second sip. Cement and sandy. As if breathing in the dust of this mixture. Green, sour apple and unripe kiwi then join in.
    • Finish
      Rather long. Plum, nutty bitterness and again the dry wood. Followed by a fine sweetness with a pleasant flavor.

  2. Northern&Isles scored this whisky 97 points Expert Senior

    A 2 strand whisky, light fruit and oak influence with tannins and vanilla.
    In the end, both elements combine very nicely.
    However, rather a whisky not for beginners, because it demands and is not easy to open. Complex and interesting. Long finish.
    I like it very much.

    It looks old and ripe, but has a flavor profile that doesn't really appeal to me. Lots of liquorice and coconut on the nose, plus tannins and a slight rubbery note. It is also fruity, but the interaction is not my thing.

    We don't become friends. A little better in taste, but the aromas from the nose are repeated. Clearly spicy and peppery on the second sip. Long finish.

    Fresh, fruity and grassy. Quite smooth, some hints of licorice. Pleasant whisky.

      Pretty smooth, a little sparkling. Very fruity, apples. Sone sweet notes, and licorice. Thick structure. Orange. Some peach
    • Finish
      85 85
      Still sparkling, fruity, orange, some licorice. Middle long finish.

  10. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    with water: it doesn't need it, but with a little water the fruitiness comes through more strongly, it becomes velvety in taste and the finish surprisingly shows marzipan notes

    Conclusion: complex, interesting, it takes time and a splash of water, then the malt opens up and reveals its secrets
    • Nose
      It takes a little time and hand warmth, then it rewards you with a fruit basket full of fruits: apples, peach, grapes, carried by a beautiful oak flavor, a little liquorice, vanilla and caramel, even a little coconut cream and pineapple can be discovered, the back shows immature Mangoes
    • Taste
      good start, fruity, oak and caramel sweetness, with some manthol and licorice
    • Finish
      long and warm, light fruit, neat oak flavor, and liquorice notes, very dry at the back and some wax
