  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=256 Color: Oloroso sherry
    Nose: Sherry, floor wax, leather, nuts, balsamic, herbs, salty lemon, orange peel, raisins and some elderberry juice. Sweet-fresh and dry-dry at the same time. Leather notes and subtle herbal spiciness - great.
    Taste: Voluminous body with intense spiciness: tobacco, smoke, humidor, balsamic, sherry and tons of salt. In addition herbs, leather, old ship dew and wood, peppermint and orange jam, nuts and again germinating wood.
    Finish: Long - and still with well structured aromas variety. The predominantly dry-spicy finish is characterized by wood and nut. Aromas of orange, honey, caramel, leather, black tea and dried herbs linger long on the tongue, tingling on the tongue.
    91 points (nose: 92 / taste: 92 / finish: 90)
