  1. Moses scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Right away. The scent is beguiling. The taste buds ok. The finish short standard.
    Since the magic of 21 years is missing.

      Wow! A dreamlike fruit plate is in the room! In addition still very floral notes with sweet spicy oak wood. Respect. In addition, the full Christmas market. Hard to believe. Very delicious.

      In the middle of the Christmas market with some bitter oak. He already transports over what the nose has promised. But unfortunately way too thin! For me, the palate is a little disappointment and therefore only standard.

      Medium to rather short seasoned with light pepper and pickled in honey. Simple, pleasant, sweet, warm and spicy. Finished. Sorry with such a good 18er in the program that is unfortunately too little! Too bad. Had expected more.

    Fruity lightness paired with sherry tones and aromatic spiciness. Very complex in the nose which must certainly be given a certain amount of attention. But on the palate it looks almost watery and the finish is surprisingly short. Nevertheless a fine, elegant and mild-spicy single malt. Unique progress in the standard range - 22.04.2018
    • Nose
      Fruity light, citrus aromas, freshly cut kiwi, gooseberry, green apple, with time it is getting sweeter and spicier, candy, fructose, chocolate, sweetened grapefruit, pipe tobacco, light roasted aromas, the scent of wood when breaking a branch
    • Taste
      Very mild and light, intense malty, honey and herbal candy, em-eukal, blood orange, spicy, oak is there but rather restrained, the texture is watery which surprised me very much, would have expected him oily, at the end of a mild, sweet Bitterness you could classify in the direction of liquorice
    • Finish
      medium
