  1. DenverbroncosDuke scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      90 90
      Milk coffee with caramel syrup. Chocolate, rather dark with little milk.
      Forest honey. Rum raisins with coconut addition
    • Taste
      92 92
      Soft & spicy. Sweet. Ingeniously round with pickled plum in Madeira. Hardly any tannins but incredibly complex. Coffee notes. For 43% incredible density. Oily cognac notes.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Warm and sounding. Light oak. Wonderfully complex and yet very balanced. Sweet fruits.

  2. hsmithjr scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Easy to drink, but should have been bottled at cask strength.  I feel it lacks "OOmph!"
    • Nose
      Oloroso sherry.  Raisins.  Rich toffee and caramel.  Holiday spice cakes.  Nutty.
    • Taste
      Thin. Quince jam.  Stewed apples.  Chocolate.  More sherry, and some hints of citrus.  More nuts (brazil and hazelnut).
    • Finish
      Medium length.  Dry.  Salted caramels.  Fading chocolate.
