  1. Jesus-Whisky scored this whisky 98 points Member Senior

    Superb Whisky, it has scored in Whisky Bible 2014 with 96 Points !!!

  2. Griller76 scored this whisky 97 points Expert Junior

    Despite the extremely long maturation period, this is not a brutal oak board, but opens in a most graceful way if you only add a few drops of water. An incredible drop!
    • Nose
      Graceful, sweet, round sherry, dates, oriental spices, beautifully noble sweet like an old ice wine, the alcohol is flatteringly integrated, musk, like the fine perfume by editions de parfums frédéric malle
      portrait of a lady; Green pickled walnuts, dark nougat
    • Taste
      Bitter oak, acidity, acidity at the same time closely interwoven with a sweet dark caramel, dried currant berries; Cardamom; strong black tea with oriental spices; Botanicals of gin and wort dark moist fertile earth
    • Finish
      Bitterness and sweetness linger for a long time, cigar smoke; The finish itself is eternally long

  5. Artus scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Fruit candy, oak, liveliness - and that at this age. Unfortunately we will find fewer and fewer malts of this quality ... one of the best!

  6. Marduk1349 scored this whisky 99 points Member Junior

    A whisky with a perfectly composed nose and a nearly perfect palate.
