4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.91 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The nose really gave me a headache for the first 5-8 minutes, too bad, even if it degrades 80-90% that 1) it is there at all and 2) lingers far behind because it is actually a very, very nice, old bourbon cask -Malt comes with a few own notes and character.
    • Nose
      Clear bourbon casnase but iiiih, unfortunately a super-penetrating polish / lamp oil mixture, reminiscent of something chemical at the dentist, takes some time, then including butter biscuit, honey, vanilla, almonds, fresh hay and wake-up melon, the melon becomes softer and smaller, but never goes away 100%, apricot, grapes, sweet pink lady apple
    • Taste
      Fresh green and red apple, fennel, chamomile, some hops, like a fruity IPA, grapefruit, nice crunchy-sweet malt, forest honey, some walnut, peach, nice oak coated with honey, anise, raisins, camphor
    • Finish
      More walnut, earl gray, oak, apple peel, fresh mixed rye bread, medium length, a hint of nutmeg and caraway
