  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Colour:

    Nose:
    Here, the vanilla is directly present, coupled with salty spice and a small "rubber sting". Otherwise, rather with subtle spice, soft herbs, leather, rope and wet autumn leaves occupied. Undercurrents are accompanied by aromas of dark chocolate and fine lime juice. The gum note disappears after a prolonged breathing and a quite harmonious aroma-feeling sets in.
    Taste:
    Round, waxy, but unfortunately with a somewhat unsightly, soapy undertone (others also say lavender note). Furthermore, herbal herbs, fresh wood, pepper, caramel, vanilla, honey, smoke and wet coal are represented. The "lavender" is still present and it goes into the finish with green, slightly bitter wood.
    Finish:
    Medium length - and slightly woody. Chocolate, peat and an underlying freshness. Meanwhile, the soapy notes are through and the finish is again harmonious. Smoke, coal, peat, honey, subtle fruit notes and a pleasant freshness remain on the tongue.

    Very fruity nose (with nectarine, apple, pear and lime all in there somewhere), with water allowing through more soft oak, vanilla and a hint of hazelnuts. Lovely, with no sharpness from the alcohol, even at cask strength. Sweet (pear drops) and spicy (mixing chillies and black pepper) on the palate, leading to a long finish with lingering soft peat smoke. Great stuff. I wish I managed to get a bottle of this!
