hs305 gave this whisky 85 points

[September, 2013]  Finally I emptied bottle no. 598 that I bought for 55 Euro in June, 2013.

[November, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 468 that I bought for 60 Euro in September, 2014.

In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85 both times.  I took no notes.

There is no accounting for taste...

Au début, malt, chocolat et café qui se mutent ensuite en pommes ! (C'est souvent l'inverse). En bouche, épicé et fruité. Un peu de gourmandise et de souplesse.

Enthousiasme 3/5

lincolnimp gave this whisky 83 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose
Sweet, floral and honey with a few notes of white wine (my initial impression)
Some lemon sherbet but the nose is not particularly expressive.
Taste
A little thin but it has enough power and then gets a little creamy.
Icing sugar, light sponge cake  and a little lemon marmalade.
Finish
Short on icing sugar.
Comments

Nothing wrong with it just squarely in the MOTR bracket.

PunxsutawneyPhil gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Pale gold
Nose

Full, a bit sharp at first, vanilla, bourbon sweetness, honey, a hint of sherry.

Taste

Less sweet than the nose, more sherry, vanilla, spicy, a bit peppery.

Finish

Short, a bit bitter, sherry, barley.

Comments
Enjoyable. Bourbon. Not very complex. Nose is the best.
Tasted with WB friend Franzman. We were quite convinced this had aged in bourbon barrels.
Blind tasting of a sample from Kay Meertens.
