  1. Totoro scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Good use of ultra-active virgin oak casks. The nose in particular seems a bit older than the stated age.

  3. SmokeyRuhr scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    A very tasty drop that can score well in the aroma and only falls off slightly in taste. Unfortunately he is rather weak in the finish.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Vanilla, apple, banana, light alcohol and even minimal smoke. All in all a nice fruit basket and a few fragrant flowers. However, sometimes a breath comes through that reminds me of hairspray.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Here, too, on the fruity and sweet side. Sometimes even fresh and cooling. However, the wood gets through with a bitter note. Overall, however, varied and balanced. No strong herbal notes like pepper or the like, just a slight tingle on the tongue.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium length, but one-dimensional with a slightly bitter coffee taste.
