  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Interesting whisky, nice fruity, slightly expandable mouthfeel, but all in all quite good.
    • Nose
      chocolatey sherry, slightly herbaceous, roasted aromas, fruity, rather dry than sweet, a touch of lemon, some spicy oak, which mixes with the chocolate, some caramel, but the main note is really this creamy milk chocolate with a red Fruchtunteron, the minty freshness The mouth is now showing in the nose
    • Taste
      first watery mouthfeel, then more intense, creamy, here sweet, light acidity, some salt at the tip of the tongue, red fruit compote, some oak, some mint
    • Finish
      Somehow quite fresh in the mouth, slightly bubbly, still sweet red fruit or berries, a little nut, a slightly woody veil is above everything

  2. Lorion scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I think the whisky is great. The nose is interesting and quite good. The palate is very good and the finish is almost unique, if very special. 89 points.
    • Nose
      Very fruity. Fruit salad with apple, pineapple, cherries and even figs. Spicy oak is subtle in the background, not very intrusive. It makes your nose dry. Herbal honey. With a little time, coffee aromas will be added. Creamy chocolate. The nose is gradually becoming more herbaceous. Italian garden herbs and even some dill.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly sweet and soft. Downright creamy and velvety. Only after a few moments does a tingle develop. The oak spices. The honey is viscous and warm. Very full. There is a slight bitterness in the taste. Spicy tobacco, slightly burned.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet. The bitterness remains very long and is quite penetrative. I like it, but it's very persistent. It gets even bitter with time. Instead of subsiding, the bitterness increases. Interesting!
