  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    There is no punch, there is some fruit missing, but in itself pretty venerable, with the rather gentle 40% a good start to the evening.
    • Nose
      Very dry, planed, old wood, intense, old tobacco leaves, bitter orange, apple peel, buttery, but rather really burnt roast fat, toffee, herbal honey, liquorice, later very coffee-heavy, becomes more and more intense later with air of 1-2 sips , some apple chips in between
    • Taste
      Also here very dry, autumn leaves, liquorice, apple peel, bitter orange, liquorice, roasted malt, coffee beans, unfortunately also a bit of apple core, tick lead, oily-dry
    • Finish
      Clearly oak, a bit rough, coffee, liquorice, very dry apple chips, medium length

    Pretty drinkable and OK, lacks a bit of punch - it really feels like an old scotch - smooth and dusty
    • Nose
      Honey, cooked oranges, dried fruits, figs and dates, hints of oak wood, whiffs of old books
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, subtle sweetness, cooked fruits, jam, dried fruits along the nose, rather old oak wood, pencil shavings
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm, bitter oranges in the end
