  1. WillemvdK scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Awesome. Might be one of the best whiskies I've ever had.

    Tasted with Whiskyclub Spakenburg on 24th of January 2015
    • Nose
      Wow! This really goes in all directions. Brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, leather, pepper, peach, old garage, cheries and Arabic pastry.
    • Taste
      Very, very sweet and dense. Reminds me a LOT of "Amaretto", the cherry liqueur. But also some ripe cherries, marzipan, molasses, sultanas, cherryjam and some charred wood or coal in the background.
    • Finish
      Very long and sweet finish with a bit of smoke lingering.
