  3. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    An absolutely grandiose, fine and well-balanced dram. The chocolate and slightly dirty notes dominate.
    • Nose
      Dark to ashy cherry notes, blackberries, coffee and cocoa, wood smoke and oak aromas, a little oily engine room, all aromas combine with water, whereby the fruitiness predominates
    • Taste
      Intense dark chocolate, warming, smoky and ashy, very creamy, strong stout, hot cocoa again, with water the taste becomes stronger and the smoke more superficial
    • Finish
      Coffee and chocolate dominate, creamy and mouth-filling, warming spice, slight bitterness
