  1. Ostap scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Luxurious mix of barrels, sequential, delicate, but noticeably sherry, with a wonderful balance.
    • Nose
      Apple juice, just a huge pile of different apples (juice, pulp, jam, apple seeds), apple strudel. Such a juicy apple has never met. Clear sherry, meat broth, honey, vanilless sugar on charlotte, cherries / cherries, raisins, old leather furniture, minerals, licorice, apricot, cashew, mint, muffin, coffee with milk, banana, strong tea .
    • Taste
      Pepper, sherry, fruity, tangentially dry, sweet, apple juice, bananas, honey, mint, mineral.
    • Finish
      Heated, oak, dry, again apple juice, mineral, knits, quite long.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice fruity and full bodied whisky, especially for 46% Abv. Lot's of fruit, very enjoyable.
    • Nose

      Fruity, oranges, citrus, some spices, ginger. Alcohol on the background, some honey.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Fruity, strong and full, but not too much pepper. Oranges, peach, some honey, a nice sour note on the background.
    • Finish
      88 88

      Wow great wood. I like the direction of hazelnut nutella and bloodcurdling. Very nice oily. Must say the sample I filled 4 years ago but then he has tasted me really great.

      88 88
      Again, bring with pepper and a little vanilla. But also something fruity. Top paints

  9. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A good malt, for a very good price. This one ins't your heavy and impress malt, but slowly gives away it's very good profile.
    • Nose
      86 86
      A very fruity nose and even some old dusty notes from malts much older than this one. Bananas, citrus fruit and spices like ginger and caraway.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Lots of fruit again. Abricot some nice ripe oranges and a little sweet grapefruit. The honey and caramel make sure it remains sweet.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A good dose of woodspices

  10. Vladimir Ziryanov scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    quite even in all the components that is found on so very often in juvenile whisky
    • Nose
      89 89
      plum, cherry, overripe sweet cherry, a bit of raisins, quite fresh and cheerful
    • Taste
      88 88
      the continuation of the aroma and a little mint
    • Finish
      88 88
      all the same, but instead of mint, there is a bit of leather, tobacco and wood
