  3. SRB scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It definitely needs water and time, at the first tasting I would have given around 88 points, after a few "tries" it is now a good 90.
    • Nose
      90 90
      First dried cranberries, then strong notes of sherry, at the same time fresh, mineral and "light". You absolutely do not notice the 67.9% in the nose.
      With a little time you can add crispbread, some leather and fresh herbs.
      The sweetness decreases slightly with water, we are now in a brewery, it becomes fresher and takes on a slightly waxy note with a little honey.
    • Taste
      91 91
      The start is spicy, but sweet and doesn't look like the almost 70% would suggest.
      With water: sweet, forest honey, chestnuts, hazelnuts
    • Finish
      90 90
      Plum jam, old wood, not particularly complex, but long and harmonious
