  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 84 points Moderator

    No punch (40% abv), rather drying, no fruitiness - to be honest it didn't meet my expectations - thus I don't know what the fuss is all about - on the other hand it is completely overpriced - let's leave it to the collectors that won't ever open it.
    • Nose
      Very malty and barleyish, rather dry oak wood, hints of smoke and old books, whiffs of toffee, brown sugar
    • Taste
      Very oily, creamy, mellow, smooth oak wood, dark chocolate, espresso, dark fruits, little nutty
    • Finish
      Medium short, warm, a tad bitter in the end
