  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    on the sherry not too marked, a little fir, the resin
    on the empty glass:
    glue, leather, cooked vanilla, sherry more on cooked citrus fruits (mandarin, yellow ciron) than on a raisin, a cherry or a date

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    woody, candied fruity, vanilla, caramelized, chocolatey, spicy on gingerbread
    a bar of dark chocolate, traces of café au lait, fruit on candied citrus fruits, a fleeting vegetal return
    mouth:
    strong woody taste on the tannin, fiery alcohol, intense peppery spice, candied fruits, caramelized, a little dust on the raisin, on the date, the dry orange zest with cocoa, a little maceration of these cooked and candied fruits, the caramelized part, almost toasted finally appears with a base of coffee, it is stronger, more intense than a vulgurus a'bunadh
    the return with pepper, coffee extract, bitter cocoa, soaked wood and undifferentiated fruits that have cooked by the fireside
    final:
    intense, caramelized, toasted, on cooked fruit, tangerine, grape, sweet date, from mocha to coffee to finish.
