    Intense and strong. This whisky is a heavy one from my point of view.
    • Nose
      Roasted apples, blood orange and raisins with cinnamon and muscat. Caramel and brittle. Hints of almond and sherry or strong/heady red wine. The smell of cork.
    • Taste
      Strong alcohol and intense taste. At the beginning some fruits, sweet red berries, winter spices mixed with the oak barrel's bitterness.
    • Finish
      Long, dry and very bitter finish. Taste of roasted nuts remains.

  5. Shane_IL scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A bit rough on the palate, but pretty good otherwise. 
    • Nose
      Peaches. Juicy red fruits. Raisins. Overripe apples. Sweet citrus. New leather. Lingering floral note. 
    • Taste
      A lot of hot spirit bite and bitter grapefruit. Once it's over waves of juicy red fruits, berries and citrus. Dry wood. More new leather. Cereal sugar. 
    • Finish
      Medium-Long. Dry sherry. Juicy red fruits and bitter wood. 

  6. Sonett scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I bet this is a Glenmorangie, it has the typical taste of that distillery
    • Nose
      Sherry, raisin plums, dates and dark fruits
    • Taste
      Fruity, slightly oily, a little harsh
    • Finish
      Medium long fruity and sweet finish

  7. rdavek scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    I wanted to like this, but unfortunately I found very little to like.  The choice is hot alcohol or bitter woodiness.
    • Nose
      Brown sugar, rubber, figs, and sultanas followed by some yellow fruits, apricots and peaches.
    • Taste
      Attack is all hot alcohol followed by some rich dried fruit but the details are masked by the alcohol.  With water the alcohol is tamed but bitter tannins are pushed to the front.  Very unbalanced.
    • Finish
      Bitter, and tannic with a little sweet fruit in the fade.
