  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    with water: the peppery screams for water, green spices are added to the nose, marijuana, the oak becomes stronger in taste and finish

    Conclusion: Too bad, even with water too much pepper and clearly too much oak
    • Nose
      87 87
      black blackberries, fermented plum jam, oak, quite spicy and peppery, raspberry, very juicy with intense sweetness
    • Taste
      83 83
      hot start, the sherry gets through, but is dominated by the hot alcohol
    • Finish
      82 82
      medium, here also a lot of pepper, PX sweetness, liquorice, strong oak, dry and bitter at the back, cardboard

  5. MickMatrix scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Somehow too closed.
    Can only tolerate a little water otherwise it will break apart.
    Switching between sweet, nutty and berry flavors was successful, but that's all I think.
    Relatively bitter finish for such a sweet malt.
    Expected more ...
