  1. oleg.wx scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Fruity, bright, rich, little prickly, but pleasant, spicy in eastern way, very sweet, but there are also notes of bitter herbs, and only tiny hints of peat, if even noticable

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A good whisky, closer to a dry and strict profile, discreet, but quite deep and expressive, rich in shades and undertones, tart, with tropical notes, sometimes even reminiscent of Fijian rum.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, soft woody notes, old furniture, a little varnish, burnt jam, baklava, roasted nuts, herbarium, dried mushrooms, prunes, roasted meat, hookah tobacco, coffee, dark chocolate, the lightest smoky shades.
    • Taste
      Soft, rich, tart oak notes, burnt caramel, furniture lacquer, prunes, coffee, tropical fruits, tobacco, mineral-industrial harsh shades, pu-erh, light peat motifs.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, oak, leather goods, lacquer, tobacco, burnt caramel, prunes, roasted nuts, metallic sourness, fudge, stout notes, light smoky ash shades.

  3. sarthur71 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    very sharp and spicy, dominated by red pepper and ginger; peat is present as an indistinct background in the aroma.
    The price is completely inadequate for the quality.
    the ratings look too high.
