  1. DrunkenHearted did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Some stupid twat paid over £1600 for this bottle.

    I think I'll buy another bottle spontaneously. :-)

    The colleague is very similar to the old 10 standard bottlings. But it also shows significantly more wood influence.
    • Nose
      Bright, shiny gold

      Starts with a little wax, green bananas and a spark of smoke. A fresh pinch blows through the glass. Also has something of a damp meadow. There is some artificial vanilla behind it.
      With a little time in the glass, apple, pear, a little dry wood and a light berry aroma will come through.

      The empty glass smells fresh, flowery with candle wax and that spark of smoke again.
    • Taste
      Spicy start. But somehow also a bit thin. Pepper and ginger mix. Still slightly oily and that spark of smoke again. The pear now looks like a compote. With a little clove and vanilla. Has some hints of tiramisu. Because of espresso cream, soaked spoon bisquit and cocoa powder.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Spicy - creamy. Almost buttery. Juniper and Chocolate Cream. In addition, this accompanying, dry, fine smoky note.

    That`s a bit harsh Drunkenhearted. There must be a few more t**ts about as one sold for £1800 at the weekend, oh and that wasn`t boxed either. Each to their own.

    Even 50€/£/$ for a bottle of liquer seems stupid to most of the worlds population :(
