  1. Wild Thing scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Strong oak notes and spices. After some time in the glass comes vanilla, and a very nice fruity sweetness with light hints of Madeira barrel. I like it very much.
    • Taste
      Very spicy, slightly bitter and dry with a caramel-coated nuttiness. Clear Madeira note and very oily and fruity ... dates? Raisins?
    • Finish
      Long intense and dry. Is getting more and more bitter. Nut and the Madeira finish comes to light again.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Strangely enough, I don't get any of the sulfur on the nose
    • Taste
      82 82
      a slightly sulphury note on the palate, which I personally find rather off-putting

  6. rpvdwel scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity. Plums, dates and raisins.
    • Taste
      Sweet but very short after that pepper and alcohol with dates and caramel.
    • Finish
      Medium and dry.

  9. dRambo scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nose: delicately exotic fruits - once you find them they are delicious, sweetness, vanilla, nuts
    Taste: sweetness, vanilla, light acidity, fruit aromas, some pepper, exotic Madeira aromas with a delicate bitterness on the finish, a certain youth is still felt, relatively boring - I had much better in memory - probably. not my day
