  1. Gregers scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Some structural issues and an odd grainy and even woolly texture.

    • Nose
      77 77
      Good dose of toffee, light raisins, a little bit of lemon peel, wet paper pulp, resin, a bit of burnt caramel, dried herbs, and a whiff of fresh hay. On the sweet side and quite light. After tasting we get full on butterscotch character.
    • Taste
      74 74
      Quite light, spicy, black pepper, wood spices, oak, cloves, nutmeg, quite a lot of barley, some toffee, oak is a bit dominant, bitter, and the texture is a bit grainy, not really smooth. Second chew brings more honey, toffee, oak still very present, still spicy, and it's becoming a bit watery, even woolly as well. Not the best mouthfeel. Third chew doesn't bring much new, a bit of dried herbs, very little tobacco leaves, and then some milk. Sort of an odd fellow - spicy, milky, sweet, watery, and woolly.

      Black pepper, some oak, milky, toffee, grainy, woolly texture. A bit short, and a bit watery.

  5. addyhd scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    first time we opened this bottle , we were not amused by this Whisky.
    now its a half year later and it became better. there's more chocolate, deeper balance and less grassiness. still not a stunner but it improved from 69 to 78 pt it did better with some more oxygen in the bottle for a longer period

    It was not that I think it tastes bad, it's that it really tasted bad to me. Maybe I'm allergic to amontillado...erh, molecules or something, but this dram was not a nice experience for me at all.

    I would rate this dram 65 at the highest, but maybe it's fair to not rate it at all. I'll let it be :-)

  7. MaltMartin scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    This whisky lacks character, but is not that bad as fellow FOTB-members think it is (my first rate that is higher than Addy....)
    • Nose
      A litte bit undistinguished. Very grassy. wet hay. Green apples. Cereal as well. Cardboard. Hints of sherry at the background.
    • Taste
      This is slightly better. Malty. Sweet fruitiness of oranges and tangerines. Quite juicy actually. Slightly spicy of peppers and nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Gingery and some cinnamon. Becomes bitter at the end. Very one-dimensional.

    This is one of my favorites of my small collection.
    I really would like how this is rated at whiskybase.
