  2. dRambo scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    real party in the mouth - rarely such an elegant, delicious and at the same time intense ex BC barrel experienced- Old School at its best
    • Nose
      93 93
      Fresh crisp oak meets furniture polish - sweet and oily, fine old woody notes, horn shavings, dusty loft, apricot, peach, orange, coconut dessert, almond slivers, a hint of old peat
    • Taste
      94 94
      Delicate, very clean, clear sweet fruit flavors on the tongue, light wood grain, aromatic but unbittered - then it opens at once - becomes broad on the tongue, nuts, coconut, creme brulee, peanuts and honey, marzipan, amaretto, great wood flavors - Resin, wood sanding dust, wood oil, tropical wood shavings, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove
    • Finish
      93 93
      clear, noble, yummy - marzipan with amaretto, complex woody flavors - every sip brings even more complexity

  3. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Good cask and decent ageing, very nice!
    • Nose
      I thought it was in a sherry cask, very fruity, lots of dark fruits, very floral, some wild spring onions.
    • Taste
      Moscatel, fresh, not bitter at all, still very floral
    • Finish
      Fermented bean curds, very matured.
