  1. mosesumike scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    First of all: Now you get it for less than 100EUR and that's where it belongs. A wonderful standard that should not be missing in any shelf. In my early days he had completely blown me away. But today I realize that he can not get over 90 anymore. But still, house whisky.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet oak, light smoke, sweet nuts and very fruity with oranges and peaches he sets off. It takes time and only makes it better. Balanced and sweet, it promises bananas and mild honey in the nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Salty sweet malt with caramel and brown sugar. Very good mouthfeel with a supple oily body at a high level makes him play the muscles. Is it almonds or hazelnuts is not clear but the interaction of everything makes the experience! Well done.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Rather long and wonderfully complex. Unexpectedly sweet, the oak remains on the palate without becoming woody or bitter. Class finish. Very warm and smooth he slides off the stage! There comes joy. Refill is announced.

    Very drinkable but I find the 12 year old to have much more character and flavour.
    • Nose
      Quite a powerful nose, honey, spice, mint, menthol, eucalyptus, a definite musty note, floral, grassy, a sharp candy sweetness, fruity(red fruits), milk chocolate.

      With water - fruitier, sweeter, peaches.
    • Taste
      Honey, eucalyptus, lots of spice, oak, tannins.

      With water - peppery, a little salt.
    • Finish
      Long, tongue tingling spice, menthol, wood.

      With water - quite heavy salt.
