  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Boah, blatant, nose a dream (93-94P), then comes a bitter bomb as I've rarely ever had (85P), the departure is so in between (89P).
    • Nose
      Nice fleshy, great nose, figs, dates, cherries, you could bite, cinnamon, oiled leather, ham with dark honey, brown sugar, plums, dark tobacco, blood orange, rumrosins, saffron, cumin, sweet milk chocolate
    • Taste
      Wäääh, what's going on here, tons of dark chocolate, but really 90%, was much more than ever in the nose of bitter substances, charred oak with lots of tannins, already black roasted steak, later at least something black cherry with seeds, overbrewed coffee, anise, Rye, dark tobacco
    • Finish
      Still many tannins, some black pepper, old leather, dark chocolate and some cherry and raisins, long, please, but with a bit more fruit than in the mouth

  7. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting notes by Gordon & MacPhail:

    AROMA without water: Defined Sherry notes, soft and aromatic, with hints of cinnamon and stewed apples - reminiscent of fresh apple pie.

    TASTE without water: Hints of charred oak, with a burst of mixed spices, smooth with a stewed fruit edge.

    AROMA with water: Sweet Sherry, more fruity notes, hints of almonds and marzipan. Clean and fresh with a hint of tobacco.

    TASTE with water: Some oak influences, with a delicate touch of bonfire embers, Sherry sweetness and hints of cracked pepper.

  8. Malt Hans scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and spicy aroma, plums, figs, peaches, banana, anise, cardamom, mint, cinnamon, floral honey and vanilla. Sugar sweet taste, mint, pepper, eucalyptus, espresso, grapefruit marmalade, dark chocolate and walnuts. Long, herbal spicy and fruity aroma.
