  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    soft gentle red fruit with open fire, on taste full fire with ash, the finish is soft with red fruity ashes. actually what one could expect of a port-peat combination.

    • Nose
      Smoke, slightly sweet, old shoe, behind it subtle fruits, a hint of lemon, (red) apple, then fresher with more lemon.

      Roasted aromas, cocoa and water make the apple stronger.
    • Taste
      Again, smoke, bite a bit (alcohol), then softer and sweeter. Sweet fruit, some malt.

      With water spicy, woody.
    • Finish
      Not too long, the sweetness remains and some oak resonates.

  3. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A very nice dram that you can imagine in the winter in front of the fireplace, the alcohol is super integrated. And the nose is great.

    But he is a bit too sour in my mouth, from the port keg the berry essence is present, but hardly sweet.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Densely interwoven with dark berries, slightly medicated herbaceous nature, greasy leather and some wet wool felt, and always comes concentrated candied fruit notes with dark fir honey. Makes a great impression.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Creamy and supple like Black Forest cake with a smoldering oak log, becoming quickly acidic towards the end, the whole thing.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Old wooden planks, which were processed with Brenneisen, echoes of espresso and at the end a bit calomelike bitterness, which after a while becomes wood tones.

    palate and finish are very disappointing after the excellent nose.
    85/100
    • Nose
      nice mixture of peat smoke and fruits. mostly red berries, black currents, cherry juice. eucalyptus leaves, hints of vanilla.
    • Taste
      quite peaty. I think it smothers the fruitiness a little and the balance of the nose gets lost. what a pitty, the nose was really good. and it´s rather sharp when you sip it neat.
      with water: a little better for the first few seconds but then the peat creeps in.
    • Finish
      peaty and quite bitter

    high quality - spicy like an authentic
    • Nose
      tender camp fire smoke, beautiful heavy port nose with dark fruits, blueberries, dates, mint, eucalyptus, vanilla, heavy spice
    • Taste
      viscous, smoke, liquorice, salt, sweet slightly bitter port - well balanced with fine port acid, tobacco, chocolate, mint, pepper,
    • Finish
      warming, very spicy, bitter sweet tobacco
