  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      85 85
      citrus and mold, cereals, slightly rancid butter.
    • Taste
      88 88
      malt, fresh cereal, a little vanilla, lemon, a little sherry which comes out then, a little bitterness that goes with it
      sensation of maderized wine, sherry still young without the leather and dust, but of course on the humus.
      all of a sudden! and a sulfur return.
    • Finish
      85 85
      fresh, lemon, riance, yeast and oak
      stay in the mouth

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    the first version of the X, more nostalgic can be more gourmet to my palate.
    • Nose
      fruit on citrus fruits and vanilla first, fruity sweeter afterwards
    • Taste
      gourmand, holds on the glass, a liquor of fruit, malt a depth on the bottom of wine barrel, sugar-sweetened soaked almond spring and wood. A fruity pastry side comes out, almost creamy.
    • Finish
      long, monolithic but strong on these aromas. long back on the hardened wood

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    not so massive in sherry, but still a very tasty bottling. Reminds me a little bit of Dalmore (flat rate, have no concrete bottling in the head)
    • Nose
      fresh, fruity sherry, citrus notes, slightly sourish, later a distinct buttery shortbread note
    • Taste
      very sweet, light sulfur, slightly alcoholic, sparkling, and I also found biscuit.
    • Finish
      a bit tart, but still fresh sparkling, later bitter sweet.
