  3. Daan2 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Pretty spicy and peated indeed. Looks nothing like the 10 yo but just very tasty. The wine influence can be clearly tasted with a drop of water. Reminds me of the Rozelieures rare collection.

  7. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The finish is the best of this dram to my opinion. Enjoyable dram and for 65 euro a nice buy.

    On the nose it is already a strong whisky, of course the peated comes back, smoke, peat, tobacco, tannin (which also comes from the barrels) and the fruity of the barrel, Fine, pickled vegetables, boiled fruit and vanilla. I don't get Pinot Noir there, but certainly wine.

    The taste is also close and I like that! Taste that matches the smell, I really like that. Of course there is also more happening, Plums, nuts, toast, grapes, vegetables on sour and a little tingling on the tongue, menthol-like tingling. But that finish, it is so different, so much sharper, here you notice that the whisky is bottled at 58% ABV.
