  1. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2017]  I bought this bottle for 70 Euro in April, 2015.

    The colour is amber and the texture shows many small tears that slowly consolidate and build legs.  The nose is a little punchy first (56,1% abv) and offers sweet fruits (peaches), some sour aromas (like fermented fruits) and chocolatey as well as vanilla notes.  The initial mouthfeel is hot and peppery but not coating at all - ergo not to my liking.  The taste is just two-dimensional:  very barley sugary sweet and tart woody.  The finish is short and nothing else.  Water does not really improve this dram.

    A simple and rather harsh whisky.  It is drinkable, of course, but I rather spare my hepatocytes for something more delicious...

    I like the yellow fruits best in the initial taste.

    The dram is sticky if you chew it well but does not offer much else then a mix of sweet vanillaed yellow fruits and alcohol power.

    Showing character and a little age, but with a fitting citric side. Totally my preferred style, so it will be
    87pts from me.
    • Nose
      A medium nose, given the strength, starting off quite complex, with dusted crépes, ricola's orange mint (I like that!), maybe half an apple, sugared apricots, a teaspoon of honey,but also a few ashes, a pack of marlboroughs, some dry earth, toasted grains, chocolate marzipan, an old lodge... Gives off a nice rustic impression with that sweet/fruity and dry/earthy play.With water: gets sweeter and oakier, with vanilla and salted popcorn, overall a tad rounder.
    • Taste
      More intense, with a clear mineral edge, a big candied citrus element in the front, still with some honeyed apricots, but also rather apple skins, menthol, olive oil and crushed walnuts.With water: Weaker, doesn't swim very well.
    • Finish
      Light. not too exciting but appropriate, the oranges win out in the end. A touch of honey and nutmeg, perhaps some lemon balm and camphor. A good combo.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Strange silence, a very deadly scent, but not bad, rich and powerful taste / finish of a completely different style; a good set of dried fruits, raisins in particular very active and all this with a bourbon barrel;
    • Nose
      Clear, raw, grain, moonshine notes, the smell of the barnyard, the window putty, slightly spirtuzen.
    • Taste
      Powerful, dense, sweet pepper wave, dried fruits - raisins in various forms, dried apricots, pear; limoncello, lime peel, bitterness of dry medicinal herbs, tablet shell.
    • Finish
        Spicy, warming, dried fruits and light oak, creamy notes - fondant, coffee with cream, herbal bitterness.

  5. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The highlight here is definitely the first mouthfeel, a bit bitter on the finish, the nose is quite good.
    • Nose
      sweet and fruity, peach cream, Haribo peach rings, oak tart, woody, vanilla, marzipan, slightly sour tart fruit towards grapefruit or orange peel, spiced milk chocolate,
    • Taste
      full-bodied, sweet, very sweet and creamy, vanilla, peach, a lot of peach, behind it again oak, great combination of the extreme sweet fruit and the tart wood note, the whole mouth is full, alcohol well integrated
    • Finish
      in the end, coconut is added, still peach, tart as chewed orange peel, a touch of milk chocolate

  8. The Macallan scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Best to enjoyed at CS, because water makes it a little more acid
    • Nose
      Lots of vanilla, briny, floral and some acids
    • Taste
      Sweet, woodspices and floral
    • Finish
      Vanilla spicyness that lingers thru the back
