2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.65 points

  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    russet
    Nose:
    A delicious sherry rocket, bursting with leather flavors. The orange is again responsible, in addition to darker fruit flavors of plum and blueberry and juicy roast and pomegranate. The seasoning is made up of cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric, curry powder, balsamic vinegar, tobacco and humidor notes. Again and again cinnamon stands out. In addition, dusty cardboard, dry soil, a little vanilla, cream and apple compote. What a rare, successful composition!
    Taste:
    Soft, spicy and fresh. Orange, mint, tobacco, pepper, salt, paprika and totally ingenious wood notes! Honey, butter, dry cardboard, soft fruit juice, multivitamin, dark fruits and tons of leather. Class!
    Finish:
    Very long - and extremely delicious! The wood dominates with the dark fruits (now elder). Still spicy, dull and tasty.
    Comment:
    You have to devote a lot of time to this nose, it's worth it. For us definitely the first curry baked apple cinnamon nose. Brilliant!
