  1. Prof.Schoof did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This Whisky was sold for 1.905 € at Whiskyauction in Apr. 2015

  2. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Only had one dram and would definitely need more. Unfortunately I added water which ruined the whisky. I am happy to have tasted it at least. This time I rated it 89 since it didn't take water well.

    (Rating interval 86-93)
    • Nose
      Organic solvent, oil paint, disinfectant, red tea, Kiwi fruit, banana flavored marshmallow. Some cappuccino even.
    • Taste
      Spicy and smoky, burnt sugar, again marshmallow candy (what we know as Ahlgrens bilar in Sweden), oak, fire damaged wood.
    • Finish
      Long, a bit smoky, a bit sweet but really difficult to clear up the contributing flavors. 

  3. Tothemorrow scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    One dram note. Adding water proved fatal to this otherwise great whisky
    • Nose
      Sweet and floral with hints of rooibos tea, green apples, blackcurrant and caramel.
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy with notes of burned sugar and spices.
