    He does not really have much in common with scotch. And he is the hammer in his own way. Incredibly complex nose, a stormy, fiery on the palate. Delicious.
    The stuff is just terrific.
    • Nose
      It starts with plum, followed by Mon Cherry cherry. Cafe-au-lait, gum, chocolate. Later, mellow wood, vanilla. Short flowery, then cigarette ash. The alcohol stings in the nose.
    • Taste
      Very sweet starting, plum, gum, coal fire. The alcohol is burning.
    • Finish
      Very long finish with spicy bitterness, leather and tobacco.

    Quite unusual and not comparable with any Scotch Whisky. Very good but not for the fainthearted.
    • Nose
      Ooops, needs some time and air - quite some varnish at the beginning. After a few minutes the varnish has disappeared and it becomes rather closed with weak aromas of sherry and tobacco. Dried exotic fruits and sweet grassy notes. Pleasant.
    • Taste
      Powerful and rich - an explosion of syrupy sweetness, tons of toffee and chestnuts. Lovely.
    • Finish
      Long dry and spicy finish with dark wood. Very satisfying.
