  5. dRambo scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Nose: sweet sherry, honey, vanilla, spicy wood, old cellar, slightly acidic, after the first sip the nose gets better, the closer you bring it to the malt, there it is clear and tasty, further away it gets more musty, I have never been so restless, I would give a difference of 10 points between further away and nose directly above the malt
    Taste: sweet fruity, ripe grapes, raisins, some malt, tingling oak, slightly soapy, slightly pleasant dry on the finish, heather, toffee, milk chocolate, with further swallowing a pleasantly fruity fresh fruit spreads in the mouth and spreads a nice Contrast to a strong cream caramel / toffee note forms.
    Conclusion: The malt is a mystery to me he is not so easy to understand, sometimes I take a sip and he is very tasty, 5 minutes later he has slight misses and again 5 minutes later he is delicious again. He gets better when you drink more of it.

  10. rottendon scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A very decent whisky, while the aroma and finish have much more to offer than the taste.
    The second tasting clearly rounder.
    • Nose
      Pear compote, red grape juice, a little vinegar, Irish coffee, over it lime, including the nose sensation of essential oils, which give the malt a fresh, fruity lightness. Nevertheless, clear sherry influence with dark fruits. No nuts, but nut yoghurt, malt is also noticeable.
    • Taste
      Very decent start. Oak, slightly dry, raisins, some milk chocolate nut chocolate. With a creamy mouthfeel. Later, black coffee prevails. Honey sweet, but rather dry. The alcohol is not very well integrated, it means that it burns something and leaves a marked numbness in the mouth. After a while, this effect is lost.
    • Finish
      The finish is not overly long. The tart oak note dominates at the beginning, but fades quickly. At the end there is a nuttiness & the creamy mouthfeel.
