  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    on the nose, concentrated and pleasant scents, sweetened at first on caramel, cinnamon, brioche, then candied citrus fruits, old and humidified wood ... and finally fat peat, and solvents of room of 'hospital!
    salty return! and on the maderized wine.
    • Nose
      earthy peat, medicinal air, candied fruit on exotic fruits.
      Important woody return that virtually removes peat
    • Taste
      peppery spices in front, peat, dry but stubborn, candied fruit, almost rotten, meat meat, impregnated wooden barrel spring.
      there is a candied caramel side in it.
