    I'd rate the price 67, because it's about the price at this moment.

  4. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tasted during a blind tasting competition in June 2015.  
    • Nose
      Sinaasappelig, vanille, hooi/gras. "Cremige" geur ("dikke whisky"). Op achtergrond ook iets houtigs. 
    • Taste
      Kruidig, vanille, ontzettend romige textuur. Gaat van sinaasappel/citrus via rood fruit over naar zoet (anijs met een beetje snoepkralen-zoetheid). 
    • Finish
      Lange finish waarin zoetheid verder naar voren komt (sherry-invloeden?).

    Blind tasting of a sample.
    • Nose
      Fig, apple beignet with caster sugar, straw, caramel, vanilla and pepper. With water more fruitiness: Mango and pineapple. Quite oily.
    • Taste
      Caramel, hay, pepper and fig. Again mango when adding water.
    • Finish
      Fig, caramel, straw, pepper, mango and a whiff of smoke. Musty old almonds in the end.

    Promising nose, but
    this malt does not deliver on that promise on the palate nor the finish. Keep
    water away.
    • Nose
      The nose is soft and
      sweet on mostly raisins, those small dried ones that come in a carton box that
      you put in your kid’s lunchbox. Then some caramel and a hint of brown sugar,
      the Graeffe. A slice of white bread. Semoule. Hint of pineapple, sprinkled with
      syrup. Very nice. Adding water put the emphasis on the bread, though.
    • Taste
      It is powerful and
      spicy on the palate, but honeysweet. Next to the raisins, I now get more
      pineapple and candied peach. The spices include liquorice, pepper and cloves.
      Adding water makes it fall apart somewhat, so this is no swimmer.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly
      long, but offers nothing new.
