  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    one of the "old"!
    explosive nose, peppery, woody and fresh fruits and candied!
    the alcohol seems stronger than what is titrated
    fruit on the soaked raisin, candied orange, intense oak, some oily nuts and coffee with cream.
    the mouth gives a pastry sensation with mocha cream (vanilla and coffee of yesteryear (from my mother !!)), a little grassy also macerated red fruits.
    the finish is long enough passing woody, ripe fruit, cocoa van houten there!
    a delight!

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Now I wanted to be surprised
    that did not succeed
    the sweetness was too boring for me
    the departure too one-sided and too bitter does not make me nervous but okay
    • Nose
      darker sweetness than in 12er, soft cherries, caramelized slices of orange and apples,> given time> wood, hazelnut shrubs in midsummer> Butterkaramell
    • Taste
      feel much more alcohol feeling than the 12er
      Marzipan with cherries and vanilla, caramel> wood, grape seeds, becomes dry and bitter
    • Finish
      short to medium ...
      Gentle association with mulled wine> Clove nutmeg, some gingerbread spice> becoming woodier> bitter

    Retaste as bottle is going to be finished (2010/11/16 batch) and the first rating was at the start of my whisky career. Rating for price based on original price in 2011. Survived 6 years open very well.

  5. Pyromann scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Excellent whisky ripened in sherry barrels. The influence of sherry is really good here, especially in taste, but in such a really nice form - it is not very sour, sweet, just great.
    • Nose
      Sweet, fruity - chocolate - sherry (wine) tones
    • Taste
      The taste is delicate, beautifully balanced, smooth, there is the great influence of the sherry who has enjoyed this whisky. Perfect piece.
    • Finish
      It is not extra long or intense, but pleasant smoke, peat, then perhaps some wood

  9. zinaf scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very good development in the glass. Keeps you amused all the time.I wish this was a bit more sticky and oily in the mouth. Also it is on the prickly side.
    • Nose
      Sweet, cocktail cherries, ripe tropical fruits (mango), thyme, sage, dark dry fruits. A hint of wet cardboard (sort of dirty aroma there).
      Water: more dried prunes and ripe fruit. With time it takes to very interesting directions. More herbs are emerging.
    • Taste
      Very good mouth feel. Great balanced sweetness, sherry. Peppery bites but good balance between the various sensations. Some bitterness too (grapefruit white peels).
      Water: some overripe oranges come out towards the back.
    • Finish
      Long, with dried prunes and just a bit drying and touch of bitterness.

  10. Xstream scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A tad too much sulphur in this one (especially in the finish). Might have been my bottle / batch.
