  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A chameleon, ultra lots of wood, leather, tobacco, a little fruit, a lot of dark chocolate. The 3-fold Fassreifung (fresh European oak, ex-Sherry, ex-bourbon) has the say here.

    Obviously completely wood-driven, not really my kind of whisky.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind sample from the 'Proef Olympics'. I really couldn't make up my mind whether this was a grain or a bourbon.
    • Nose
      Cherry, caramel, lemon zest, smoke. Diluted there's wood shavings and 'zure matten'.
    • Taste
      Cherry, blueberry, caramel, tonic, lime and smoke.
    • Finish
      Blueberry and caramel.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt




    Nose:
    Very pleasing mix of bourbon spices, plum wine and black pepper. In
    fact, there are some almost rum-like aromas conjuring up hints of
    cinnamon and apple crumble. Definitely a grain whisky, but one with a
    fantastic pedigree.
    Palate:
    A fabulously evocative palate that tastes extraordinarily like rye
    whiskey. There are hints of liquorice too, and apple pips, burnt brown
    sugar and maybe a little strudel, but overall rye whiskey is definitely
    brought to mind. I could even go so far as to say it strongly reminded
    me of Van Winkle 13!
    Finish: Long, spicy finish with dark fruit and almond.
    Overall: A very good and very different old grain whisky. Definitely worth trying!
