  1. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A good, powerful wood-grain whisky, whole, full, taste, unfortunately, is spoiled by cardboard and bitter tablet notes.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, freshly sawn boards, a carpentry workshop, lemon peel, sharp mineral notes, light resin shades, salty grape leaves, sweet caramel tones, vanilla.
    • Taste
      Powerful, saturated, tart oak, wave of red pepper, sweet creamy caramel notes, raw cardboard, boiled vegetables, bitter tablet shades, herbal medicine.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak, caramel sweets, lemon peel in tea, grain, workshop, vanilla, ginger, oily notes.

  2. Frion83 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The aroma is good, the taste is rustic after such an aroma, but it is energetic, sometimes vigorous but pleasant, the finish, unfortunately, is the weakest feature of this release.
    • Nose
      Aroma: thick and rich, mussels liqueur, honey and a lot of dried fruits. Apple peel and a little sherry. After standing up, it became more like an already cooled charlotte. It goes further into herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Taste: ginger, pepper and oak with a lay down lemon peel, with a hint of vanilla. It slightly burns, but does not turn away, I want to take another sip.
    • Finish
      Finish: I will quote a colleague "Aftertaste: short on taste details, but rather long on physical sensations - oak with lemon rind and spicy (ginger and pepper) perceptible-warming wave that knits and even burns. At the end of the licorice root echo" © Blackpool better not say so.
