    Nice full fruity whisky, with some far little dirty touch. Very pleasant.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Fruity, oily, glue, winegums. Sour apples, linoleum. Full scent. Mango. Far away a touch of sulphur.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Quite some power initially, fruity, tropical fruits, sweet, licorice, a whiff of peat. Later on more smooth with some sparkle. A bit drying.
    • Finish

      Smooth now, licorice, sweet fruit. Orange. Pretty long, some tropical fruits as well.

    Molt is ready to eat right away. There is no need to dance around him - pour and drink. A good example of modern whisky.

  30. sengaia scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    24 years in a first fill bourbon barrel is a long time, and even though the expected vanilla and oak are very present there is still plenty of fruitiness to a go around to make this a very pleasant whisky.

    This is less complex than I hoped for, but also less oaked than I feared. If you enjoy bourbon barrel maturation this is a classic and very good example.
