    I admit it: I bought this whisky because of its color. But he convinced me; It's not too complex, but it's nice to drink and the alcohol is well integrated. The color in the glass is extraordinary.
    • Nose
      At the beginning vanilla and honey, then sweeter, cherries, amarena cherries, not very alcoholic
    • Taste
      very nice start, red wine, red grapes, very sweet, almost gummy bear-sweet, a bit dry, but pleasant and complex; later the barrel inlet comes through more, although the port barrel does not come through here
    • Finish
      medium, restrained, the sweetness remains, especially the cherries, mild and with a little vanilla

    N: What a lovely sweet nose. Hints of nuts paired with an overwhelming port influence. Mouthwatering!

    M: Again, mouthwatering flavours will your mouth. There´s a sweet dryness to it. I don´t really know what to say. It´s just delicious

    F: The sweet, dry notes remain, like a sweet kiss that only reluctantly wants to leave your memory.

    A nice, strong malt, although a little sweetness and more fruit would have done it good to convince me absolutely.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity, berries, cherries, a bit dark chocolate, but the port influence is rather reserved. A slight polish note can sometimes be heard, but then has disappeared again.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Powerful, very spicy, less fruity than expected. The cask strength is quite drinkable, but there is still some water because I'm looking for more fruit, which doesn't really work. Instead, there is a distinct dark chocolate in taste and oak.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Long finish with notes of port wine, dark chocolate, some nuts and tobacco leaves and roasted oak. At the very end, it ends a bit ethereal.

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice dram for sure, powerful and intense, fruity, very tasteful. Pleasant whisky.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Very fruity, red fruits, berries, cherries, some leather and chocolate. Orange as well. Also some alcohol and clearly some glue too. Also some organic/vegetal edge.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pretty powerful initially, turning into intense even. Red fruits again, berries and cherries. Pure chocolate. Malty, honey, coffee.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Now more quiet, less intense yetfull bodied. Red fruits again with a little bitter alcoholic note underneath. Pretty long with some tobacco, and (dark red) winegums.
