  1. hs305 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2014]  I donated the rest of a bottle to a party that I bought for 50 Euro in January, 2014. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 80.  My notes state "Why should I waste my precious liver units to such ordinary stuff?"  Nothing remarkable...

    A down to earth and honest dram.
    • Nose
      Impressively relaxed, the noses move down the glass. Meanwhile, hazelnuts, almond slivers and blackberries sneak into the nose. The alcohol cools the nose. In the background something oak. Orange peel is noticeable.
    • Taste
      Oak, coffee and dark chocolate. Some walnut on the palate.
    • Finish
      Mitellang with nuts and dark chocolate.

    [Color] white wine;
    • Nose
      76 76
      fruity and spicy in the change, oak, no sherry in the nose palpable!
    • Taste
      76 76
      initially dominate spicy oak, dark chocolate, only very delicate fruit and Sherrynoten;
    • Finish
      75 75
      a fairly long finish that is slightly bitter.

    PLV ok, has its own profile. Is good average. The slight alcohol nose gives minus points.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Nose
      very clear dried figs, on which one has poured clear alcohol. In addition a cereal note. Sweet. Buttery. I find the alcohol not so well involved.
    • Taste
      83 83
      button
      very round, starts subtly sweet and sour. Then some brown nougat, some milk chocolate, caramel, then getting drier with nut. A little buttery.

      After 20 minutes in the glass, the dark notes come out much stronger and the taste is much better
    • Finish
      83 83
      finish
      Medium. Sweet, restrained oak flavor with a hint of lemon zest A dry grain note comes from the throat.

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty and was a good deal for then 50 € TWS club membership including bottle.
    • Nose
      first dusty-dry, woody, a little hay, with water he opens up properly: creamy, nutty sweetness, nougat, marzipan, walnut, in addition to fresh tropical fruits, grapefruit, mango
    • Taste
      Nougat, dark chocolate, walnut, latte, spiced with spiciness
    • Finish
      medium length, lots of chocolate and walnut

  10. Bond scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    Pleasant! The oak is a bit too dominat here for my liking
    • Nose
      Flowers in a summer meadow, followed by dried raisins and apricots after a while. Some peppermints you had half an hour ago or so.. (not kidding!)
    • Taste
      Body: Creamy, watering, sharp
      Palate: Bitter chocolate, oak and nuts joined by some spices (ginger, curry?) and blank coffee
    • Finish
      Medium, dominated by chocolate and nuts.
