  5. HunterRomario scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Lemon grass, lemon, graceful forehead in the first impression. Sweetness, vanilla and honey come on. A bit of a varnish. The water will not change it much, it will only soften slightly. (87 b)
    • Taste
      The taste is mature, strong, varnished, sweetish woody, pretty sharp. Wood is really good here, but it's not bitter. With water, the lacquer is gone, honey woody with chocolate appears. The taste is great with water. (89 b)

  6. Nethar did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    good whisky, not too strong for a single cask - great choice for everyone
    • Nose
      sweet aroma, chocolate, exotic spice, fruit, leather, cinnamon
    • Taste
      sweet and spicy
    • Finish
      spice, sweets, leather, long finish
