5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points
- It takes some time and needs some air to open up but then all the freshness kicks in - a very good pick!
Nutty, fresh mushrooms, hints of rubber, black tea, whiffs of acacia honey, sherry wood, later on more fresh fruits, citrus fruits, cooked oranges - needs some time after opening the bottle - gets fresher and better - very good!
Wow, what a creamy and soft texture, oily, liquorice, more cooked fruits, hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, even some coriander and cardamom, toffee, milk chocolate, subtle sweetness, clean sherry wood - fantastic!
Very looong, warm, spicy, good sweetness, not drying, best wood notes, even some red wineish notes - great!
