  6. El Bastardo scored this whisky 60 points Member Senior

    A rock-solid whisky for intermediate drinkers and an excellent choice for beginners until one or the other newbie might raise the bar.
    • Nose
      Quite fruity, I would say above average. A very light smoke can be found, but only relatively at the beginning. It flies quickly. Despite the age, a sweet and fresh meadow and other bright fruits. If you give it a little time, the age comes to the fore.
    • Taste
      More on the sweet side, but this is partly offset by the weight and flavor.
    • Finish
      Remains for a long time and is pleasantly clumsy down the throat.
