  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Spicy and fruity aroma, nutmeg, polished leather, coffee beans, grapefruit juice, prunes, eucalyptus, resin and floral honey. Vanilla sweet and tannic taste, pepper, eucalyptus, anise, dark chocolate, toffee and walnuts. Long, spicy, herbal and malty end.

    Tasting notes by George S. Grant

    Dark rich mahogany.

    Big sherry nose, heavily polished oak, dark espresso, rich Christmas fruit cake, warm mulled wine. A lot happening in this one.

    Again aniseed present, star of anise floating in a very large mug. Rich almost like port wine. Very fruity, no dryness at all nor any real sweetness.

    A very long fruity fragnant whisky.

    A joy from start to the very last drop.
