  1. zinaf scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Excellent whiskey, although water ruins it a bit on the palate, while it improves the nose.
    • Nose
      Immediately sweet, maple syrup, coconut, fresh ginger, vanilla cream, some nutty notes (raw almonds); dried apricots; oranges.
      Quite powerful for the nostrils so be careful
      Water: more sweetness with some nice raisin notes, it's gentler. Very nice nose. Liquorice?
    • Taste
      smooth, oily, then bites a bit the front of the tongue
      initial sweetness develops into dry bitter notes
      Water: more spices - all sorts; gets very, very bitter - apricot kernels/seeds. Black tea.
    • Finish
      long, not dry at all at first, gentle sweetness, some almonds skins develop towards the end with touch of wood. the final sensation is of corn syrup.

    The nose made for a great start, but the bitter taste and lack of complexity rendered this an uninteresting dram.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Besswax, over-ripe Apples, prunes, leather, very sweet, caramel
    • Taste
      74 74
      Bitter, a bit sharp, a bit too oaky, salt liquorice. Not very complex and riddled with bitter taste. An IPA of the whiskey world.
    • Finish
      72 72
      Quite oaky. Not a lot happening.

  8. HunterRomario scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Cocoa, cinnamon, cut leather, varnish are also slightly perfumed, but fortunately, they are not the unpleasant ingredients known from bourbon. The aroma is very distinctive, sweet spicy. After the addition of water (3 drops to a small stick) will develop more into chocolate, alcohol and paint shop will retreat.
    • Taste
      At first, I found it quite dry, bitter-chocolate, alcohol (50%), and it seems to be lagging behind the scent. However, this will change for the better by adding water, which is very helpful here - the sweat is awakened and the chocolate becomes even stronger, the alcohol recedes.
