  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [May, 2009]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 112 Euro in April, 2007.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a bold and rich "chewable" dark sherry profile that is very powerful.

  2. Gondwana scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Plums, soaked prunes and oak, powerful Dram

    Today I emptied the Bottle after 6 Years opening, and it´s still a powerful Dram from the old Days.What a Beauty!

  3. Volanne scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    You'd better like your whisky dark, thick and chewy to enjoy this one.
    • Nose
      Heavy sherry. Almost spoonable.Dark chocolate and prunes. Chinese salted dried plums. Burning damp bark. Surprisingly citrusy too. Crystallized oranges. Orange liqueur (Grand Marnier?) keeps it kind of vivid. Kind of...
    • Taste
      Prunes galore. Strong coffee with a scoop of coffee ice cream and a splash of coffee liqueur. Cocoa beans. Sticks to each part of your palate. Drinkable (well... Sipable) neat, but a drop of water won't hurt. Pretty uncomplicated, but quite impressive.
    • Finish
      Endless, with an obvious herbal bitterness.
