  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    Fantastic whiskey - what a stunner! One of the best whiskies I ever tasted.
    • Nose
      What a superb nose! Sweet aromatic sherry aromas with plum butter and polish at first nosing. There are lots of dates in here, prunes, red wine (Chateauneuf du Pape) and raisins. Notes of chocolate coated coffee beans, tobacco, floor and shoe polish. Needs time and then becomes fruitier and fruitier.
    • Taste
      Bold, concentrated and powerful - oily, creamy and sweet -  plum butter, mocha and chewing tobacco - dark sherry concentrate - spicy and peppery. Fantastic!
    • Finish
      Very long and intense on notes of mocha pralines and chewing tobacco,  strong black tea and plum butter.

    Nose: Fat aromas of plum and plum jam, red and dark, candied fruits, red wine, rich blue grapes and vanilla, which are provided with a beguiling lavender freshness. In addition, subtle Maggiwürze, tobacco, raisins, honey, classic sherry, cardboard and wet newspapers. Not to despise the flavors of finest herbal tea - perfect nose!
    Taste: Oily-creamy with sweet, powerful sherry, all sorts of dried fruits and a spice that wipes everything away. Mighty pepper notes whirl on the tongue and cross through dull notes of cardboard, paper, leather and wood. Excellent - with orange peel, tannins, herbs, elderberries, it goes into the ever-drier finish.
    Finish: Long - fruit sweetness combined with herbs, coffee, espresso, mocha, lots of dry leather as well as orange and wood
    95 points (nose: 96 / taste: 95 / finish: 93)
