  1. Blindbob scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    I bought this in '05 only got around to opening it last year. It's definitely benefited from resting in the open bottle. It is very busy. The Tokaji comes though making it a complicated but approachable whisky. It's still kicking around occasionally in the auctions, isn't horribly expensive and is well worth a go..

  2. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice base distillate, but maybe a little bit of finish, but the Tokaj feeling came through.
    • Nose
      Creamy. Peat, musty basement and ash. Unripe fruits. Touch of sulfur and phosphorus.
    • Taste
      Bittersweet. Big oak with vivid acids, but the botrytis Tokaj flavors comes well with it.
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, spicy.

  3. mmaclean scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very peculiar whisky. It’s interesting in some respects, with the
    thick, sweet Hungarian dessert wine fighting with damp peat smoke for
    attention. But it tastes a little disjointed, and a bit too youthful.
    With a few more years aging (before finishing in the Tokaji wine), the
    flavors should integrate and mature better. But as it is, this whisky is
    still “work in progress.”
