    Very good stuff! Too bad it was just a sample...
    • Nose
      Fresh, rich, fruity notes, tropical fruits, ripe bananas, touch of vanilla
    • Taste
      Oily, waxy, very creamy, nice oak wood, touch of leather, citrusy, cooked oranges and dried fruits, nutty, subtle sweetness
    • Finish
      Medium long and warm

  4. aphex scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A great blended malt. Rich and dry. Reminds me of excellent old Armagnacs too.
    • Nose
      Elegant sherry nose. Prunes, figs, raisins, spices, leather, tobacco, coffee. Light underwood notes (earth and mushroom). A veil of smoke. With time, a few exotic notes.
    • Taste
      Attack on dry sherry with dark chocolate, leather, tannins and a light earthy peat. Afterwards more fruits with dried fruits, oranges, berries, exotic notes. Slightly syrupy. Spicy oak. Tobacco. Hints of smoke.
    • Finish
      Medium. Lingering smoke, fruits, spices and earthy notes.
