  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Rather good whisky. The nose at the beginning is sour and kind of unpleasant due to noticeable sulfur notes but after staying some while in the glass those unpleasant notes disappear. It has some complexity and releases new aromas with water but also going quite smoothly on its full strength.
    • Nose
      Malt, sulfur notes, lemon cake, butterscotch, toffee, dark berries, yellow pear, vanilla, dusty wood, nutmeg, soft oak, pear candies after adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, green apple, oranges, spices (pepper mix), yellow raisins, toffee, a touch of mint, soft and slightly bitter oak, orange zest
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet, dry, nutty and slightly oaky with choco notes

    Conclusion: powerful, bright, a little rough, but, most importantly, very tasty whisky. This sherry monster. Cool copy! I regret not having bought 2 bottles!
    Rating: 88 (n22, t121, f22, b23)
    • Nose
      The aroma can be traced shades of prunes, dates, figs, honey and ground hazelnuts. In the distance - spices, old skin, dried tobacco leaves and a subtle note of the barnyard, with all the ingredients.
    • Taste
      Pinching taste (58.9%), with nuances of dried fruit, spicy spices and berry jam, with a strong oak effect.
    • Finish
      Aftertaste: rather long, pleasantly burning, sweet, berry, with spices and high content of tannins and sherry echoes, with a cigar flavor.

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A worthy representative of the young and strong, a good replacement for the old, barrel fortress, 12-year-old, balance, pitches, the charm of youth - everything is in place, although it turned out to be more victorious and more straightforward.
    • Nose
      Fresh, juicy, mineral tones, wet pebbles, fresh masonry mortar; lemon, light floral notes, malt, wet grain.
    • Taste
        Saturated, sweet-oak, soft peppery wave, creamy notes, boiled condensed milk, fondant, plenty of oak.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste, creamy sweetness and spicy oak in a frame of ginger and crusts of orange and grapefruit.

  9. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    With water, the Malt goes on properly. For me it will be a lot better. Great. A nice example that not all NAS are bad. And no comparison to Batch 3. Batch 2 is way better.
    • Nose
      Sweet and spicy sherry. In addition bright fruit. Toasted aromas and cocoa. The alcohol is noticeable but not disturbing.
    • Taste
      Nice creamy. Roasted aromas again. Now coffee is included. The alcohol builds up gradually. A portion of pepper is also there. It's going to be nice and dry. The sherry influence can no longer be dismissed by now.
    • Finish
      The finish has again properly pepper. The alcohol is there. Dark spices, ripe apples, oak and sherry. The presses after the first sip again right after.

  10. matts scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful malt for cold winter evenings, which leaves a nice warm feeling in the stomach without the addition of water. With the addition of water also very delicious, but a little more ordinary. So far, I liked it a little better.
    • Nose
      A nice combination of sherry, barley malt and sweetish smoke. In addition, milk chocolate, vanilla and some orange background. After the addition of water, raisin flavors get through and the citrus fruits are more pronounced.
    • Taste
      Without water a powerful, spicy start. A mixture of ginger and creamy milk chocolate. In addition dark fruits, above all plums and cherries. Add a little salt. After adding water, the fruit is much more fruity: exotic fruits - like a fruit salad dominated by pineapple. The chocolate takes a backseat and the lightness remains.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, warm finish. Dry, slightly astringent and heavily dominated by chocolate. After adding water, less chocolate, more dried fruits and significantly more oak.
