  1. martinbutterfly scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    ????: light golden, slightly straw
    ????: bourbon metallic, intensely waxy, slightly floral, you don't even feel that it's only 40%, waxiness and sweetness intertwine, quite interestingly, a little old dusty wardrobe,
    ????: sweet, unfortunately alcoholic ... very, only 40% and goes out quickly and only alcohol and a bit of dim sweetness remain, wrong ...
    ????: slightly warming, tart
    *
    Poor, nose still gives great hope but with the first sip everything goes to the head! You can't drink it, unfortunately. No pleasure.

    ????: 2/10
    ????: 78/100

  2. Portfolioman scored this whisky 76 points Expert Junior

    unspectacular, the 15 years can hardly be guessed,
    it is not a total failure, but it tastes arbitrary and without special features
    • Nose
      light fruit, light sweetness, oak wood, a little sherry
    • Taste
      watery, herbs, some menthol, oak, resinous, slightly oily, some pepper
    • Finish
      medium-length, oak, grassy, slightly menthol-herbaceous (cough drop)
