  1. penumbra scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    When Frank was still alive, it was simply my favorite in the re-production of Genting. In addition to the lack of age and youthfulness, it was enough to become a ration wine at this price.
    • Nose
      lls's favorite dog fur is arrogant, intuitively feels between the Oloroso barrel and Tokaji barrel, with high acidity and sweetness. The one with the strongest expression of peat in Langaro is nothing fancy, salt, grain and earthy flavor. The fruity taste is very rustic, bold and exciting, with grape-flavored QQ candy, red apple peel, orange and yellow lemon peel oil, spicy. The candles, sulphur and five-spice powder brought from the Sherry Bucket are intertwined with Genting’s unique cheese, banana, and coconut milk, and finally finished with charcoal fire, mocha, and 35% chocolate.
    • Taste
      For those who drink less Genting, the salt may feel a little bit too much. Although the overall taste is sour, the overall quality of this batch of barrels should be good. It brings out a little bit of sulfur and leather, and a variety of complex and sweet temperate fruits. Reminiscent of those bottling in history. The peat is still very strong. There is more smoked bacon than the smell, the shredded tobacco, the fat is no longer the sweetness of the beginning, only the big oil, furniture wax, and finally the bitterness of ginger, pepper, licorice, white wood and matcha.
      Strong, good fat, indifferent sweetness, a little sour, trace tannins, slightly astringent, obvious bitterness, no pungency, no alcohol.
    • Finish
      Longer, sea salt, peat, pepper, matcha, cheese.

    NOSE: Initially dry peat smoke and not much more, perhaps some sweetness in the background. With air; dried fruits and very sweet malt juice, raw like fresh wort. Dark bread, mint. (89p)
    TASTE: Peat smoke, aniseed, dark liquorice, mild black pepper, sweetness. Intense. With water; Oilier, slightly more peppery, less liquorice (88-89p)
    FINISH: Long aftertaste. (88-89p)
    OVERALL: Total score 88-89 points.

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Body: gentle and soft.
    • Nose
      Dundee cake, raisin, pecan , smoke. More sherry than smoke.
    • Taste
       The peat bedded down in the rich fruitcake character given by the sherry cask. Subtle, rich and weighty.
    • Finish
      Oily.
