  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet orange, pomegranate, dried kumquat skin to start, moving to a deeper red dates, mackerel oiliness and a little bit of green apple here.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Ginger, 50% dark chocolate, wet damp soil after a rainfall, fried onion, reduced Japanese sake with a few drops of Zhenjiang Chinese vinegar. Gets on to be slightly sour but retains its delicate-ness from the nose.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Vanilla, fresh cream, Gouda cheese. Medium in length but lacks complexity and character that can be developed.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      91 91
      Honey, candied orange, dried apricot, vanilla, hay, apple, Craquotte and a little porridge.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Honey, smoke, roasted almond, tangerine, vanilla, apricot, apple, ginger and grass. Water adds leather, dark chocolate and eventually pastry.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Peanut, vanilla, orange, smoke and a slightly rum-like mixture of yellow raisin and apple. Initially somewhat disappointing compared to the nose, but then a tobacco note pops up which makes it really delicate.
