  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    A peat bomb with a whiff of rum, clearly not my cup of tea!
    • Nose
      Very intense smokiness (reduced: some rum influences and still smoky)
    • Taste
      Soked flavour, smoked sweetness, briny
    • Finish
      Briny, spicy long lasting peaty dryness

  7. markjedi1 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Wow, this extremely
    good. Both with or without water. Thanks, Chris!
    • Nose
      The barrel immediately
      puts a stamp on the nose, which is fresh, midly grassy and sweet on sugar cane,
      raisins, mandarin and vanilla. The typical maritime traits that one would
      normally associate with PC remains in the background. Yes, there is some sweet
      peat and even some diesel oil, but the rum plays first violin. And frankly: it
      works perfectly! Add some water and it becomes a little farmy with loads of
      citrus.
    • Taste
      Spicy and peaty on
      the palate, but immediately very sweet. Oranges liqueur, nuts, vanilla,
      mandarins, raisins, brown sugar, they all roll easily over the taste buds,
      despite the high ABV. A touch of liquorice and mint, too. Zesty! The maritime
      traits, like on the nose, duck their heads. Midpalate, it starts to pick up
      some saltiness…
    • Finish
      … to end in a very
      brackish but long and warm finish.

  8. Bouncer scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Bottled at the distillery for Marc Segers on the occasion of 10 years "whiskycorner", Houthalen, Belgium.

    One of the first 10-year olds that
    were released
