    N: 16/20 , now this is quite the entry. Strong, young, wild, nice ashes, yet sweet. I wanna drink it
    M: 44/50 , creamy, strong, sweet and wild ashes. Very round. Lots to be tasted here with every sip
    F: 12/15 , now that´s a finish! Keeps lingering.
    VfM: 10/15 , again, about 15€ less would be great. But overall still worth it

    In summary, maybe the best of the 4 new BD´s. Depending on whether you like the ashen taste of GlenTurret. Just a tad too expensive, for my taste, to get myself a bottle (or just not good enough to justify 80€?) though

    You have to give the dram time. Let stand quietly for 15 minutes. Only then do dark chocolate and toffee notes open up. The aroma reminds me of toffeefee. This taste can also be found in the taste. However, the alcohol could be better involved. With a few drops of water, the nut aromas come out nicely, but you can also feel the high alcohol content here.

    Nose: without water: PX sherry and marzipan, very light smoke in the background. With water: less marzipan, a little more sherry note, no smoke, slightly citrus
    Mouth: without water: PX-Cask incl. Sweetness, light smoke, has some volume, light herbalism. With water: white pepper, less (PX) sweetness, spice yes, smoke no
    Finish: rather short, sweetness, slight bitter note towards dark cocoa
