  1. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    23 years on small casks, I would have expected more woody notes. Very well balanced. I would like to try it again.(Rating interval 84-88)
    • Nose
      Closed to start with, fruity with green apples, turtle wax, organic solvent, oak and ginger bread. Complex spices plays in the background.
    • Taste
      A powerful delivery with mixed fruit, licorice, brown sugar. Good substantial body with lemon, spicy oak, dark fruits returning with the addition of water. 
    • Finish
      The finish is long and dry with white pepper, orange peel and lemon juice. Some tabasco notes appear on the second wave.
