  7. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    I like it! I rarely dilute strong whiskys, but it's worth it. But I miss a bit the very special muff character that I like about the Ledaigs. The Sherrynoten are very dominant here.
    • Nose
      Fully loaded with sherry, plums, raisins, chocolate, light smoke, at first it bites something in the nose, nut, caramel, very intense and creamy, below the surface it is also spicy, iodine, mint, but overall dominoes but the grape nut chocolate, some bacon is also there, suddenly a clear spicy honey note. with a little bit of water, it makes the nose right again, much more intense,
    • Taste
      creamy sweet, sherry, plummy, fruity, again the smoke is very reserved, chocolate, espresso, honey, very intense, the cask strength is already noticeable, but not unpleasant, even something cinnamon, you almost want to chew it, also helps here Water, much fruity, a little lighter, the lusciousness is gone
    • Finish
      Nut, sweet, espresso, bittersweet, plums, cold ashes, long-lasting, the bitter notes last longest, the creamy mouthfeel remains

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting of a sample.
    • Nose
      Peat, apple, peach, caramel, orange, kiwi, liquorice root, an earthy farmy touch and chilli pepper. With water some curry.
    • Taste
      Very peppery and peaty. Orange, gingerbread and raspberry. With water apple.
    • Finish
      Peat, gingerbread, orange, dark chocolate, apple and pepper.

  9. j j scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    this is a heavy dram. you have to work your way true.

    very nice...
    • Nose
      figs, burned meat, lemon.
    • Taste
      smoked ham, roasted pork, light peat, citrus.
    • Finish
      high abv is kicking in. add some water.

      after that. great complexity
