      really nice nose. fruity, orange, nuts, dried fruits, milk chocolate, cinammon
    • Taste
      sweet and fruity with a good measure of spices
    • Finish
      Long and fruity

  5. HunterRomario scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Tasty again after nearly five years, this time at a joint event with Duthoron and his friend Pedro. The package was changed, the bottle was no longer in a nice tin box, but only in a black paper box, the bottle label disappeared. But the content is more important, and this time he was sitting even better than he once used in my bottle.
    • Nose
      Strongly fruity, with a bourbon touch, then caramel and spice. (86 b)
    • Taste
      Power is to know, lots of chocolate, heavy fruit. Sweet with a sparkling alcohol that is pleasant, she adds to her grace. (86 b)
    • Finish
      Medium.

  6. Shane_IL scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This is a blend done right. Yum
    • Nose
      Rich , spicy oak. Woody vanilla. Cinnamon. New leather. Roasted nuts. Cafe latte, maybe a chai latte.
    • Taste
      Rich nutty notes. More oak. Tinned fruit. More of a distinguishable pure vanilla note now. Stewed pears and apricots. Minor hint of the grain spirit bitterness showing through.
    • Finish
      Long. Woodspice. Roasted almonds. Some lingering hints of stewed fruits and vanilla custard. Bit of a grainy after taste.
