1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.75 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 78 points Moderator

    Too much leather and cardboard and the finish is really short - not really enjoyable
    • Nose
      79 79
      Shoe box, fresh leather moccasin, some dry wood notes, hints of honey, toffee, chocolate and spices - the leathery notes are just too dominant
    • Taste
      80 80
      Very oily, creamy, some sweetness, little fruitiness, mainly woody notes and again a bit leathery but less than on the nose
    • Finish
      76 76
      Medium short, warm, little bitterness, hints of cardboard (the shoe box is back)
