  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Sauternes goodness, my favorite of the three wood finishes. But since 3rd Ed. less Sauternes influence, unfortunately.

    • Nose
      Fruit; Sweet; Malt; distinct spices and citrus; Vanilla and nutmeg; Nutmeg becomes clearer with a few drops of water; Water also shows a nut note
    • Taste
      Spicy; sharp; Nuts, sweet, citrus; Nuts are becoming more and more dominant; candied ginger sticks, but sweet rather than spicy; The nutmeg shows up again
    • Finish
      Sweet; then strong spices follow; Vanilla; then citrus (almost sour); clearly ginger paired with a delicate ginger sharpness; then again incredibly sweet, but the ginger stays long. Really long.

  7. Gloin scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The smell is harmonious and pleasing, it clearly smells like whisky, but the peach has a component that makes the whisky distinguishable from others.
    In the mouth, the tension decreases a bit, even if the taste fits the impression he has left in the nose. The finish is a little off. I like the whisky a lot, it is original, but lacks complexity and intensity.
    • Nose
      Peach, honey, spicy oak, almonds in the background, a touch of cherry, some apple, the peach remains the dominant flavor
    • Taste
      Soft, creamy body, medium onset, sweet, again peach, juice this time, some white grape, a hint of pepper, some oak, the spice and delicate Bitternoten bring
    • Finish
      In the finish, oak becomes clearer, again the peach is found, but less sweet, coupled with the bitterness of the oak, medium to long

    The whisky leaves different impressions in the nose and mouth. The fruits in the aroma are no longer really in the taste. But here comes a ripe spice. Similarly complex, like the Quinta Ruban, but with a different fruit blend and slightly darker chocolate.
    • Nose
      The first in the nose is forest honey with limes. This is followed by orange, apricots and vanilla. Above all, there is a fresh Minznote.
    • Taste
      In the beginning spicy-sweet. The forest honey paired with dark chocolate. The mint from the aroma is here for chili sharpness and is dominant for a short time before then return the sweetness and spice. Creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long. Alternately spicy and sweet, with a subtle sharpness.

  9. Nolloff scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The first whisky that really "did" it for me some years ago. Ideal stuff for beginners due to its sweetness. Does not have the same impact with a more experienced palate of course but - to repeat myself - if I´d want to send  someone un-initiated down the Single Malt path this would be my first choice.
