  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    fair puddle

    au ha. this malt is different. Nice soft sherry.
    The finish is mauve and does not match with this bitterness
    the notes on the palate I would call getting used to
    the nose is really great
    was an experience
    • Nose
      dark malt, vanilla and becomes stronger, slightly sherry, slightly caramel and becomes more, slightly red sweet berries, brown sugar
      later such a comic touch, bright fruit becomes pear and apricot, sweetness and gets stronger, slightly red wine and slightly dark chocolate
    • Taste
      soft and silky on the palate
      gently sherry beautiful, ääääääh cardboard, dark berry (so berries), sweetness, slightly spicy
      later comes dark caramel, raisins and oak
    • Finish
      medium to long
      Licorice and then comes heavily oak and bitter notes

  2. Albaron scored this whisky 79 points Specialist

    slightly acidic, not bad at all, but has a few notes that bring him too close in the direction of a blend and thus looks a bit rough. Nevertheless, it tastes delicious and yet offers a certain depth and complexity.
    • Nose
      some alcohol, solvents, slightly sour, some raisins and caramel, very light vanilla flavors and some licorice
    • Taste
      a little alcohol, then a bit sour, malty, some black tea, slightly bitter, some mint and tannins
    • Finish
      some malting and then bitter oak
