  1. alectron scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    doesn`t do much for me with water, and neat it`s a bit spirity.

    Transferring previous Note (2012.01.03) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      ripe red apples +/o, bourbon vanilla +/o, lemon o, couverture/dark
      chocolate o, parafin/wax o, wood polish & pesticide o/-, tobacco
      o/-, slight bright wood influence o/-, (88)  
      A bit later:
      cereal/grain & hay, more wood, pears in a basket slightly overripe
      & some fermented o, some dark chocolate o (87)
      Later:  still chocolate-y but more waxern and warm vanilla (pudding) w very nicely balanced oak (88)
      Much later (90+ mins): mushroom notes come through & feels flat now (73)
      W Water: grapes +/o, vanilla syrup, somewhat (wet) stone/mineral-y on the nose now, (85)
    • Taste
      syrup, a bit mineral/farmy with some hay, grain husks, sand & some
      sour somewhat yeasty notes. Also, some fruit esters, mostly towards
      apples & ripe bananas (87)
      W Water: seems to add very little, a
      bit sweeter (dissolved chocolate gummy bears...?) less mineral than the
      nose suggested, some tobacco (84)
    • Finish
      spirit comes to the
      fore, woodyness says hello too but only slightly, herbal notes, sweet
      malt and distant fruit in the back (84)
      W Water: again/still
      chocolate gummy bears, now also with some licorice/sandalwood
      bitterness, less mineral in the finish as well, but spirit is noticable,
      despite a lot of water. (81)

    This is better with a little water but the balance is not there and it is still rough round the edges.
    Some decent flavours and a nice sweet caramel note mixing with some a stewed plum, just a little bit hot.
    Not too bad.

  6. spigray scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    n: slightly musty sherry notes, reminding me of some old bunnas.
        the anti-dronach!!!
        but there are still some sultanas and prunes.
        there are earthy notes, tea, hints of honey and even some waxy note (hurray),
        polished wood, turpentine. maybe a tiny bit of smoke.
    t:  with water: creamy to waxy attack with some honey and these musty sherry
        notes again. really mouth-coating.
        loads of oaky spices, aniseed, sage
    f:  long, still very strong and dense.
    comments: excellent stuff, I just got me a second bottle.
         big thanx to maggie

  9. magic_slim scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Full herbal power. Brute, but a nice experience.
    • Nose
      Fresh and slightly tingling due to the high alcohol content. Sherry with herbal notes, coffee and liquorice. Plum butter and some rum raisins as well.
    • Taste
      Powerful, aromatic, sweet and bold. A herbal tincture with Mon Cherie and hints of nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Very long and aromatic. Becomes slightly bitter towards the end.
