  1. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The good sulfur-mineral sherry whiskey, alas, did not fit into a single canvas, of the pros - a harmonious and complex aroma, the taste / finish could not, although all the components were available.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, the first nose is mineral and berry; old furniture, leafy leaves, overripe, rotten fruit, strong sulfur-mineral notes, grindstone, burnt fireworks, carbide, welding spray; wet, rusty tin; a lot of raisins, dried fruits, sweet creamy shades, toffee, fudge;
    • Taste
      Dense, saturated, a lot of tart oak, furniture varnish, sweet creamy notes mixed with strong sulfur-mineral, a metallic flavor is applied to the bitterness of the bark, alas, a harmonious picture did not work out, everything was somehow dissonant, torn.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak-lacquer, ginger, grapefruit peel, fading sulfur-mineral and sweet notes, also out of balance.

  2. z-imaging scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Not an easy one, strong and very expressive whisky
    • Nose
      Prune jam, treacle, molasses, rose hip jam, baked pumpkin. Very thick and expressive nose
    • Taste
      Thick and heavy body, oily, peaty, prunes, some typical old blend dirty notes
    • Finish
      Medium to long

    N: A savoury nose on red wine and beef bourguignon.
    T: it's unusual. fuzzy, sweet, weird.
    F: Finishes more conventionally. Most pleasing at the death.
    C: An odd one but again, interesting,… start to the day. Blog
