    The smoke gives the sweet Rumeinfluss good contra. Pretty sweet in the mouth, but not over it yet.
    • Nose
      84 84
      slightly ashy smoke, vanilla, molasses, sweet and sticky, sour, Raffaello, so more creamy and also the slightly roasted of the waffle shell, the sticks a really everything in the nose, after the first sip I have smoldering coal with sweet , almost like a sweet fruit infusion in the sauna
    • Taste
      87 87
      oily, full-bodied, very sweet, fruity, light acid again, then the smoke comes as a bitter counterpart, roasted notes, sticky-sweet, grapefruit on the palate, tingling, I like quite well
    • Finish
      85 85
      the smoke has largely disappeared, still sweet, yellow overripe fruits, galia melon, some wood on the palate

      Smoky and fruit possibly banana
    • Taste
      Smoke, fruit note and vanilla
    • Finish
      Smoke, sweet, not very long

  6. vojt466 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I was expecting more - mainly rum, so disappointment for me, though, of course, there is no breakthrough ...
    • Nose
      Fine peat combined with dried fruit and probably the advertised banana could be found there, heavy floral tones
    • Taste
      In taste slightly peat-rounded in combination with soft pepper spice, vanilla, again dried fruit - dates, figs, toasted toast, caramel
    • Finish
      In the reverberation of peat, woody, caramel and a little spice on the tip of the tongue - it is quite long but not very intense, rather rounded and cultivated

  8. Pyromann scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    A whisky, nice and full on the nose, which is being 'killed by the taste.
    • Nose
      Very sweet on the nose, like its not even a whisky - very intense rum, pralines, rum essence. A decent aroma.
    • Taste
      The taste is not as sweet as nose, rather woody, drier - sweetness is present only with very low intensity. This is a step aside compared to nose and what I expected. Little disappointing.
    • Finish
      In line with taste, medium intensity and longevity.

  10. Georges scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Peat smoke, oily, bananas, heather, dark sugar
    • Taste
      Peat smoke, spicy, dry, coffee, spicy (ginger, eucalyptus)
    • Finish
      Medium long, smoky, spicy, dry
