  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2016]  I emptied a bottle together with friends that I bought for 75 Euro in May, 2014.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a complex and rich sherry profile with a nice marzipan note.  Very quaffable...

    Agree with Ras Mazunga: this stuff has indeed some very strange taste. Maybe it
    has been matured in Ex-Camembert casks or was flavoured with a slice of
    Brie. Not really disgusting, just super strange. Nose is great though. :)

    @Ras, are you sure you got the right stuff?

  5. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 64 points Super Administrator

    Tastes very strange, lots of mushrooms and other fungi. Nearly impossible to drink for my taste.
