3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.06 points

  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    You have to get involved with it, unfortunately the aftertaste disappoints somewhat, for me all in all, unfortunately, no purchase recommendation for the 75 pounds called up
    • Nose
      Fizzy raspberry, chocolate, flowery, slightly fresh, minty, slightly nutty, becomes more chocolaty over time, edible paper, also more spice over time, some oak comes through, the alcohol flashes through from time to time, the nose becomes after the first sip more pleasant and less alcoholic
    • Taste
      Creamy, espresso, chocolate, oak, a little spice, grassy, a little strange mouthfeel, one-dimensional, really totally chocolatey, with the second sip also a little raisin, the oak note is also quite present and represents a good counterpart to chocolate, that saves it for me in the mouth
    • Finish
      chocolatey, slightly floral, grapes, rather short
      Conclusion:

  2. LittlePeat scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Dry sherry on the nose and on the palate, well integrated. Light to medium nuttiness. Overripe grapes. Overall very dry, but I really like this whisky. The price was maybe a little too high (over £ 70).

    PS: Trockenbeerenauslese - exactly, it reminds me of that.

  3. Mascht scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    extremely sweet sherry barrel and hardly any distillery character, nevertheless very good
    • Nose
      89 89
      dark ones with a heavy sweetness of blueberries, dark chocolate, gingerbread dough, shoe polish, roasted peanuts and effervescent tablets
    • Taste
      86 86
      sticky, sweet and astringent after dark honey, raisins, white coffee, toffee and herbal sweets
    • Finish
      87 87
      long and again this intense, almost like a Trockenbeerenauslese
