  2. Dottore scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Wow, I really like that. Wonderfully grassy and floral in the nose. Morning dew on alpine meadows. The lilies on Grandma’s window and her rose soap. Liquid honey and light hints of lemongrass. Fresh rye bread. In the mouth with perfect drinking strength and nice and creamy. Also here very grassy and flowery, but also with a nice bitter touch. The age is unmistakable. Bread spice and rose water. Slightly bitter. Chicory. Wood. The finish is dry, pleasantly spicy, coriander seeds, clove pepper, wet wood and soapy water. Once again great noses from the guys from WDC and WN! Like a symphony of Littlemill, old Cragganmore and 80s Bowmores (just a tiny touch). 91 points

    The stuff is definitely for nerds and not for quick enjoyment
    • Nose
      90 90
      Creamy vanilla, cookie dough, embedded in grassy-flowery notes, a short walk through the garden at home, a few herbs and earthy root vegetables
    • Taste
      85 85
      Extremely bitter, woody, with earthy notes in between, initially a light mint freshness on the tongue which then turns into 90% dark chocolate
    • Finish
      86 86
      short on the palate, long-lasting bitterness on the tongue
