  1. Cobo scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Wow, fat dark fruits, strong umami notes reminiscent of Mortlach and beef broth. Leather, soy sauce, liquorice, chocolate, very creamy yoghurt tones and salt, damp leaves and earth, what a complex malt !!!
    • Taste
      sweet and delicate, cherries and chocolate, gradually leather and some OBF, wonderfully light but complex
    • Finish
      relatively short, spicy, creamy, cherries in cream

  6. Torfding scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A wonderful whisky, if only the too short finish would not be. I must confess, that spoils my enjoyment a little bit (which leads to the point deduction).
    • Nose
      Nutty (almond), pickled fruits, oak, pencil, a little resin, something like bark or mulch, some dry tobacco and, of course, clearly sherry
    • Taste
      cool and spicy, slightly bitter, oak, sherry, chocolate, iced coffee, dark caramel
    • Finish
      rather short, a little chocolate and coffee; Something remains even after minutes still on the palate hang, which I can not describe, somehow krautig or woody perhaps
