    • Nose
      91 91
      Absolutely over the top. Cantaloupe melon that is overripe by far. Apple syrup, date, raisin, caramel, honey, liquorice and ginger.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Old furniture of laquered wood. Lots of spices. Mocha and apple syrup. Still that overripe fruitiness in the back.
    • Finish
      91 91
      First mocha, date and dark chocolate. Then the woodiness which makes it dryer and dryer.

  2. Sonett scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    With some water,even very little, it falls flat
    • Nose
      Nose of Molasses, almonds and burnt sugar
    • Taste
      Sweet burnt sugar, hazelnuts, bitter almonds and old cognac
    • Finish
      Medium long with a bit sulphuric aftertaste
