  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    It probably me, but it is too dry, to woody and not sweet enough to enjoy neat.
    • Nose
      The nose starts on spices and wood. Pine bark! Quite some cloves and some mint. The first prickle quickly disappears to make room for some sweet notes like milk chocolate and corn on the barbecue drenched in sweet butter. Not bad, but not earthshattering either. The wood dominates, which I think is a pity. 
    • Taste
      The arrival is sweet and sour with again lots of woody notes. The pine tree returns. Quite herbal. Thym, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Slowly evolves towards dark bread with sesame seeds. The corn on the barbecue evolves towards mildly salted popcorn, but the whole works. I would have liked this to be a tad sweeter though.
    • Finish
      The finish is more of the same with lots of spices and wood. At the death, the tannins take control, leaving your mouth dry.

    This whiskey is all about rye, rye and rye.
    • Nose
      Clear rye spices for a start intermingled with pine and menthol. Perfumy notes. Pencil shavings and fresh cedar wood. Dried figs at the background. Toasted chestnuts. Smoky black cardamom.
    • Taste
      Rich and round mouthfeel with lots of brown sugar and cinnamon. Rye bread. Later on more on gingerbread. Carraway. Toffee and caramelised oranges as well. Hints of coffee roast.
    • Finish
      Long. Black pepper and nutmeg. A little clove. Liquorice.
