  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Compared these with the other 5 editions. This one at first is almost equal to edition 2, but later on this 3rd one turns more into ripe fruits. In taste more sweetness, in the finish more (bitter) alcoholic influences.

      Peatsmoke but also some fake leather, grassy, hay, cow stable. Later on more fruitiness, ripe fruits. No stinging alcohol.
    • Taste

      Pretty strong and full, but less pickering. Peatsmoek, ash, now more sweetness, chocolate and caramel, also some tingling mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still pretty sparkling, sweet smoke, ashy, caramel, more honey, long finish, tingles pretty long after. A bit of alcohol bitterness.

  3. larswehmeier scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Compared to Cuvée # 1 & # 2, it is much more pleasing, especially on the tongue. However, this also makes it a little less complex overall.

      First, a large portion of smoke rises from the glass. Nice maritime. Then it becomes sweet and fruity. Vanilla, malt, glucose and a few strawberries,

      Even after the first sip, it stays fresh and maritime.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy texture. Powerful start. Dry tart chocolate. Salty caramel. Good portion of pepper. Dry on the palate.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Long, strongly spicy, almost hot, but not unpleasant.
