  2. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Pleasant chocolate confectionery and perfume moth, excellent balance, spicy, light, especially good aroma, but other components are not far behind. I am a supporter of consumption of whisky in its pure form, but I can not but note the excellent compatibility of this mole with fruit, especially with green grapes.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, bitter chocolate, raisins and dried apricots, bourbon - perfume notes, a little carpenter workshop and furniture varnish; green grass, weak citrus notes - generally dense, balanced, interesting in development, multifaceted.
    • Taste
      Bitter chocolate, oak, pepper, creamy toffee, boiled sugar.
    • Finish
      Oak bitterness alternating with chocolate sweetness on the background of pepper and spices, medium duration, warm.

  6. EnjoyLife89 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Immediately strong, intense fruity, in the background light cinnamon, citrus (orange), sweet molasses, some oak, malt and nut pretty close to each other
    • Taste
      Sherry is very present. Very spicy, softens later sweet sweetness, oak light, quite dry, nut is clearly noticeable. It is creamy and has a light touch of cinnamon
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Drying, there is no bitterness, sherry remains throughout, malt and oak remain longer in the mouth.
