  1. KyleRamsay scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Tasted from a sample.

    Not bad, but i don't think ill be buying a bottle. You can taste the youth, and it lacks depth.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Spirity, fresh fruits, grapes, oak, some sweetness.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Very spicy, and a bit sharp, loads of oak, some sweetness and fruitiness comes out the longer you chew it.

      You can really feel the age here.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Oak, grapes, drying.

  6. 2ndSip scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    it first needs time to unfold - enough air is good for it.
    [86 - 82 = good whiskey -> get (second) bottle? Maybe...] It's not bad, but it's not overwhelming either;
    the tingling on the tongue suggests a certain youthfulness, which the finish tried to conceal - but only succeeds to a limited extent; still quite passable. The sample is enough for me.
    • Nose
      84 84
      initially appears "fresh" on the nose. Then dark (berry) fruits, dark blackberry, dark cherry, black currant, which is already slightly over; slightly fermented strawberry that looks sparkling (young/fresh).
      In addition, a tannin spiciness from a red wine (reminiscent of a Burgundy). Blossom honey and vanilla in the background convey some sweetness.
      With enough time also milk chocolate. The "rotten" strawberry aroma always comes to the fore for me and always brings a certain acidity with it.
    • Taste
      83 83
      the strawberry aroma is back, but now it's more like a normal, ripe strawberry and not as rotten as on the nose. Slight tingling on the tongue, lots of sweet spiciness. Dryness and tannins spread across the tongue.
      The sour component of the strawberry first comes into play, but disappears again quite quickly.
      2nd Sip: more fruit, red fruit, "fresh youth", which harmonize well with the red wine aromas. The whole milk chocolate turns into a tart, dark bittersweet chocolate.
      Here again the strawberry dominates for me.
    • Finish
      82 82
      oak, tannins, spice, dark chocolate; overall maximum medium length - the tart chocolate lasts the longest with the tannins from the oak barrel. Fruits are gone quickly.

  7. Izzino scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Aroma: pleasant burgundy aroma, chocolate, dark fruit, Turkish delight, prunes
    Taste: chocolate, black currants, dried fruits, plums, sweet spices
    Blend - 46% - Recioto Wine Cask (represents the Veneto region - Northwest Italy) is a sweet dessert wine similar to PX - made from sun-dried passito grapes. It is divided into two categories, Amerone and Recioto.

    • Finish

      Sugared almond, vanilla, apple and bramble.
