    One of my favorites. Good value for money
    • Nose
      Dark chocolate, pickled raisins
    • Taste
      strong onset, immediately full sweetness, pickled dark fruits, dark chocolate, spices, oak
    • Finish
      medium long, warming, getting dry. The sweetness is totally dominating now

    Simple but good quality.

    Light dram, young, smooth.
    • Nose
      Sweet, floral, shortly: UHU, cream chocolate, floral vanilla, caramel sweetness, thin liquid honey, raisins, a little tangarin, later appears spiciness; after the 2nd sip hints of coffee
    • Taste
      Sweet, citrus, cherries, raisins, hints of oak (slightly bitter), idea of honey, caramel, vanilla bean, something chocolatey, spicy, fiery at the 2nd sip, charred wood
    • Finish
      Plums, sweetness, honey, wood, reminder cocoa powder, somehow buttery, light bitterness of charred wood

  8. irrerelevant scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    sweet, fermented, yeast, champagne, the wood smoke looks a bit weird, sherry, in the mouth again very sweet, very pleasant and mild, the finish is weirdly bitter, not so mine

  9. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Since it was compared to Journey again a shovel on it. Must not hide from Scottish sherry keg matured whiskys.
    • Nose
      Directly dark chocolate, orange, caramel, massive sherry, the famous dark fruits, in the background a fresh mint note
    • Taste
      Expects sweet and chocolaty, oily, caramel, raisins and prunes, very smooth, lots of salivation, yummy
    • Finish
      as if you were sucking chocolate (grape nut but without nut), with time, only the grape skins are there
