  5. Astrid scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful interaction of bourbon and sherry casks. However, a noticeably young bottling without great complexity.
    • Nose
      soft and buttery, the influence of the various types of cask is clear, strong bourbon accents with the so typical vanilla and white oak, on the other side sherry and the accompanying dried fruits, plums and dried apricots and figs, ripe citrus aromas of oranges, hints of mango, dusty , very fine spicy, sliced, chewy apple pieces with cinnamon and white and brown sugar crystals, then some sweet caramel
    • Taste
      dry, medium-bodied oak, fully ripe citrus fruits, earthy, malty, cinnamon, white pepper, hints of ginger, oak, slightly bitter, mirabelle, almost ripe cherry, vanilla, honey, apple, slightly sprightly
    • Finish
      Malt, dry, cocoa powder with light astringency, long and warming, slightly spicy with a hint of cinnamon, apple, slightly used oak, walnut, strong dried apricots and butterscotch in the finish

    Okayish but definitely not my favorite
    • Nose
      Lots of vanilla, butter, cookies
    • Taste
      Butterscotch galore, vanilla, some citrusy notes
    • Finish
      Rather short, no news with the finish

  8. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Rich nose of clove, cinnamon, pepper, green almond, orange, hazelnut. Silky and warming palate with a coffee taste simpler than the nose. Medium final beeswax and almond. Interesting.
