  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Well, there is such a malt with not positively surprised, the wine comes through but he does not fit here somehow and the alcohol is not well integrated
    • Nose
      slightly red fruit (the wine?), pastry, oak, a little musty, spices (anise?), malt, later sweetness then comes wax from the ski workshop
    • Taste
      oily and soft on the palate a strange note, oak which becomes more, spicy, sweet and bitter alternate, the alcohol is not well integrated
    • Finish
      medium long, slightly red wine, somewhat slightly artificial, spice mixture, sweet and bitter in the change

  2. granella2003 scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Nutty and spicy. Quite fruity too, with the musty, intense character of an old
      port wine. Hints of tropical fruits, chamomile tea, sweetness, blossom and
      dates.
    • Taste
      Rich, big and bold with walnut, manuka honey and
      apple peels, caramelised. Hints of oaky red wine and star anise.
    • Finish
      Good length with thick, rich malt, roasted nuts,
      peels and fruit, a little cranberry perhaps
