  1. gralson scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      at the beginning low tones, oak wood, root, peat, wet litter, later cherry in the background, and vanilla blancmange, mega dignified, feel the bourbon barrel, vanilla
    • Taste
      at first the sweetness of plum and lemon, in the background dry with the piquancy, and by the end the very cool gentian and the gentle aftertaste of peat which stay all the way to the finish,
    • Finish
      finish long enough, sweet, by the end mainly bitter

  2. Lafroy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nose gives the sense of pure sweetness of sherry, cherry biscuits, dark chocolate, toffee, prunes in chocolate, alcohol liquor, smoked peach. Sweetness is everywhere and it´s very intensive. Additionally, some notes of spirits mixed with glues and fingernail polish.
    • Taste
      It starts with wonderful sweetness. It´s definitely dominated by huge sweetness, cream, cheesecake, powerful toffee, cherry & chocolate, malted barley, honey and marmalade. Some smoke, some pepper mixed with peat sweetness can be found in the aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Very long, round, sweet, with a little bit of dryness and pepper notes. Very mature, sweet and impressively complex whisky considering the age.
