  5. hnorjordet scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    On my nose I picked up dark syrup, ginger, some bread dough, toffee, vanilla, dried fruit (figs special), some menthol and mahogany. The taste was characterized by dark syrup, toffee, hazelnuts, vanilla, cinnamon and ripe apples and plums. Oily and full. The ending had sherry, vanilla, red apples, some cinnamon, dried fruit, burnt toffee and hints of grapefruit and sulfur (certainly not of the unhuman variety). With a little water, a little malt was added to the nose, along with toffee, menthol, tea and a little peach. The taste got some anise and pine needles. A little drier. The finish was characterized by oak, vanilla, toffee and almonds. A little bit longer.

    • Nose
      Plum compote, vanilla, roasted almonds, nut and coconut, delicately creamy, wood notes in the background, become stronger after some time, oily, tobacco, medium heavy, with rice pudding and white pepper
    • Taste
      nice, round sherry, rather dry, wood pleasant in the background, becomes determining on the departure
    • Finish
      long, wood in the foreground, brown notes
