  3. m884 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    very unusual style, but i rather like it. I think it's better without any water.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, creamy (vanishes with water) , a bit sherry, a little bit mineralic, a little bit peat
    • Taste
      spices (arabic/oriental), fruity - banana & white sweet grapes
    • Finish
      Sherry, grapes, chili, maggi, with water a strong vanilla note

  4. magic_slim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite expensive in Europe but definitely a very good whisky.
    • Nose
      Mellow with a fruity beginning of canned peaches. Changes soon into notes of sherry, pencil shavings, peat and dried apricots.
    • Taste
      Smooth and creamy. Sherry, toffee, peat, spices (curry, cardamon) and fruits (lychees, canned peaches). A nice combination, completely different from any Scotch whisky and rather tasty.
    • Finish
      Medium long, chewy and soft with toffee in the dominating role.
