  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Heavy smoke smolders out of the glass. A little burnt rubber. But it also brings a lot of sweet but also spicy honey right away. And then it gets extremely fruity with dark grape juice and pickled cherries.
    • Taste
      In the beginning surprisingly light on the tongue. Pleasantly sweet. Distinct licorice. Only on the palate shows a dirty, ashen smoke. Then the red wine notes come with pleasant acidity and dryness.
    • Finish
      Spicy, almost a bit peppery.
      Ashes in the throat.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Well-balanced, harmonious, very drinkable, spirituous. Alloy finely crushed rubber with red wine.
    • Nose
      The first wave - red wine, thick, saturated, then - wide spectrum rubber - from soft, porous and warm to cold gas mask, then earthy, peaty notes, watered coals fire and again burst through them wine-berry, sometimes lemonade tones. Harmonious, it is .
    • Taste
      Continuation of the aroma - wine, red, sweet, fortified and immediately - bitter turf, coal taste, rubber, fresh bark from young shoots, pepper.
    • Finish
      Peppery, bitter cortex, burning ginger is gradually inferior to the hidden sweetness in the background. Medium duration.

    • Nose
      sweetish smoke, fresh, red wine, red currant
    • Taste
      rather fat and full-bodied, the smoke is pleasant, not medicinal, slightly bitter, with a fruity sweetness, blackberries, black currants, wild honey, slightly spicy
    • Finish
      surprisingly peaceful, some smoke and sharpness

  6. Albaron scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    An unusual whisky that also has a very dry phenolic smoke that looks like an off note, but ultimately arguably isn't. It was an experiment. It worked for me, but I can understand if you don't like him.
    • Nose
      In addition to the alcohol, a light phenolic smoke with sweet fruit notes comes through immediately, red fruits, especially cherries, but also a few raspberries, a sour undertone also mixes in, as well as a light sulfur note. Also mineral and earthy, but also slightly metallic
    • Taste
      the dry, slightly phenolic smoke is clearer than on the nose, the fruits, on the other hand, are more subtle, but they are all there, menthol is added, the sulfur note is noticeable far in the background, plus the mineral and metallic note again
    • Finish
      a slight bitter note, plus the dry menthol smoke remain for quite a long time
