  1. Saftkenner scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful and harmonious bottling, which you can really tell that it comes from a Moscatel barrel. The drinking strength is just right and I got along just fine without adding water.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A bit reserved but very pleasant on the nose. Sweet and sour fruits are in good balance. Green pear, a hint of anise, honey, light grapes, star fruit, vanilla. The sweeter notes come to the fore as they get warmer.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Powerful, tingling and slightly oily at the start. Pear, caramel, salty and mineral notes, quince, ginger ale.
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is short to medium length and slightly dry. Pear, quince, salt, hazelnut, fine oak.

  4. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    the nose is special
    I think the malt is really great
    one should give him time
    better not add any water or just a few drops
    • Nose
      Sweet, tennis balls (freshly unpacked) ??, oak, tart berries (Johnannisberry), dried herbs, chemically processed wood (wood + stain or polish)

      with water: the chemical note becomes stronger
    • Taste
      round, soft, oily
      neat red berry mix !!, red Haribobär !!, sweet, light oak, simple sweet candy, later Cola Haribobär

      with water: sweeter, more oak
    • Finish
      medium long
      red berries, red haribo bear, stinging wood

      with water: tart
