  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Taste is a bit better than the nose, but pretty strong and full whisky actually for a 40% Abv.
    Some clear sherrynotes, fruity, with also a light hint of bonfiresmoke in the taste.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Red fruits, berries, some orange. Clear but light sherrynotes. Some vanilla as well, and licorice.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Pretty pickering, notes of citrus. Pretty strong for only 40% Abv. Spicy, cinnamon, pepper. Also a little hint of bonfiresmoke appears. And later on some wine gums.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Now it's more smooth and soft. Still some red fruits, also a sort of rubber, and again some bonfiresmoke. Also wine gums now, middlelong.
