  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Unfortunately very shallow in the mouth, as missing at least 6%, if not more. The nose was still interesting, the mouth rather flat. Only gets the 85 because he has no junk notes and in itself delicious notes, also the finish brings out again 1-2P out.
    • Nose
      Hui, is fast becoming very own, extremely buttery as rare so far, properly American pancakes with fat cube butter and maple syrup on it, oiled leather, caramelized hazelnuts, milk chocolate, marzipan, chestnut liqueur, black cherries, orange syrup, acacia honey, apricot
    • Taste
      Orange juice, but heavily diluted unfortunately, a problem in the mouth, honey, a lot of toffee, a lot of toffee, small crumbs with little raisins, marzipan, white chocolate, waffles, apricot ice cream
    • Finish
      Interestingly, in the finish stronger than in the mouth, not too often, here comes dry mandarin and apricot, some dark malt, light tannins and toffee, medium long

  3. The Whisky Cyclist scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    this is a very nice dram, balanced, do not understand why the every of the malt manics is 77 points, the old fashion screw top
    • Nose
      shy at first, citrus, chocolate, dried fruits, very complex, also the old bottle effect?
    • Taste
      milk chocolate,fruit, little bit burned, dried red fruit.
    • Finish
      bitter in the finish
