  1. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A complex, fine, very polished representative.
    Everything is subtle, interwoven, set and fine.
    Great nose, cannot keep this very high level in the mouth.

      Dense, finely woven. Undergrowth, foliage, a bit earthy, tobacco and leather. Finest old sherry. Everything subtle and fine.
      With ventilation, there are significantly more fruity nuances (dried apricot, raisins). Cardamom, cinnamon. Shifts constantly.
      Complex.

      Fine sweetness, very polished, finest spices, silky, dense.
      Set. Spicy, fine fruity old style sherry. Slightly dusty. Furniture polish and a tick carpet cleaner.
      White pepper, malty.

      Here too, very polished, fine and round. Pastries, the finest spices in the aftertaste. Medium length.

  2. rottendon scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This is something very special, which was absolutely right for the occasion. Great balance, excellent vatting. Even if the whiskey does not meet my taste 100%, the quality is unmistakable.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Woodruff shower powder, light acidity, only a little old bottle flavor. Later also caramel, sherry shades, cocoa and light fruits. When heated, it explodes, incredibly intense. Dark fruits are now added, there is more than you can crumble apart in a short time.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Wow, it is incredibly intense and powerful, the 40% are hard to believe. It is creamy, pudding, honey, herbs and a good dash of white pepper.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is medium to long and interestingly, it also warms the chest vigorously, despite the 40%.
