  1. martinbutterfly scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    ????: dark gold, slightly falling into brown,
    ????: smoky, sweet focal, strong, volatile, a bit refreshing, slightly humid-sea, very pleasant intense PX combined with vanilla, which is trying to show itself from the intensity of PX, there is something in my nose that is hard to guess ... such sweetness of cookies with salty toffee?
    ????: sweet, smoky, smooth, strong, slightly stinging, slightly chocolate, chocolate box! Yum Yum!
    ????: sweet-focal, warming, slightly biting, quite long,
    A delicious focal torfik, a nice slightly changeable nose, as if two-dimensional: a sweet salty bonfire + a slightly pinching sherry bomb! quite an oily palette and a finish that doesn't disappear so quickly. Faaajnie! Yum Yum!
    ????: 5.5 / 10
    ????: 89/100

    I saw such sweet whisky for the first time, very good!
    • Nose
      Sweetness, smoke, fresh fruit, some caramel and varnish
    • Taste
      Very sweet but also palpable salt and pepper, dried fruit, everything fits very well
    • Finish
      medium warming, sweet

    Nose: Sweetness, peat, a little medicine, a little fire place
    Taste: Peat, unfortunately also slightly spicy, slightly salty. After adding water, the sharpness of the taste disappears a little better. Even sweet elements appear, which in combination with peat is not too bad, but unfortunately a little flat in taste and one-dimensional, unfortunately.

    Rating: 87 | 100 Long finish rather sharp.
