  1. Erik1908 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The facts up front:
    - A score of 77,50 points @ 15 votes
    - Bought a sample at the Wageningen whisky festival for an honest opinion at home.
    - I got pre-warned: this is not your daily dram or your average whisky.

    Let's see what will happen this afternoon.
    • Nose
      87 87
      The nose starts interesting. first observation: somewhere between Glendronach and Glenallachie single cask bottlings. This means a deep dark and rich sherry nose full of raisins and plums. A few drops of water do not change things.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Peculiar start of the taste. Unbelievable warm mouth feeling. Immediate outburst of warm sherry tones and tickling spicy flavors all over the mouth.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long and warm finish. But again pretty odd. I do not exactly know whether I like this or not. As such a conservative score of 84 points. I can understand the cardboard notes by WB user Ludel. But I would not call this disgusting. Slightly bitter and dry in the finish.

  4. Ludel scored this whisky 67 points Expert Junior

    Basically this is no bad whisky. In the nose and on the palate: nothing spectacular but ok, maybe in the lower 80s. But what an awful finish! My bottle has some very disgusting cardboard notes which make this whisky almost undrinkable.
