  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Pretty nice to have a drink in between. But absolutely nothing special. The nose pleases with its fruitiness, but overall could tolerate more complexity. The alcohol is not optimally involved.
    • Nose
      sweet, orange, later malty and lemon balm
    • Taste
      sweet again with lemon balm, some cloves, relatively aggressive alcohol,
    • Finish
      medium length finish with some oak and spice

  10. SweetPeat scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Works more mature and a little bitterer than the 12er. Beautifully balanced with sweet and tart notes. Thanks 43% strong enough and for formerly under 40 € priced very fair, unfortunately taken from the market.

      sweet sherry, caramel, vanilla, honey, clear oak, coffee, chocolate
    • Taste
      85 85
      Intense, rather dry, sherry, raisins, plums, sweet citrus, honey, vanilla, spicy oak, espresso, heather
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long (7/10) and spicy with dark fruits and oak
