  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Did this one h2h with a standard CI 12, that one is way more ashier. This DE is more fruitier, ripe apple.
    Kind of a pretty smooth dram, no overwhelming alcohol and peat.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Warming nose,fruity and some peatsmoke. Ripe fruits, apples, apple pie.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Smooth and only a very little pickering. Some licorice, smoky. Later on it gets stronger. Hints of fruits, ripe apples, plums.
    • Finish
      84 84
      A little stronger now, smoky and a spicy touch. Some honey sweetness and a hint of peach. Middle long finish.

    The nose is sweet, like apricots, with just a snif of peat and the taste starts gentle and soft and after a while the peat becomes stronger. Stronger! Hmmmm. The finish brings sweet fruits and peat, or is it peat and sweet fruits? Anyway, the Moscatel smoothens the whisky and gets sweeter and richer!  Top Whisky!
