[October, 2015]  I emptied a bottle that was a present to me in March, 2015.

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 very fruity and sweet profile that is very quaffable...

There is no accounting for taste...

Ein süßer Fruchtcocktail mit einer tollen Nase. Trotzdem wirkt der Malt zu lasch, ein paar mehr Volumenprozente Alkohol hätten ihm gut getan. Für den aufgerufenen Preis keine Kaufempfehlung.

Fall es jemand sucht: Das Abfülljahr steht auf der Flasche... (neben der Flaschennummer)

Connoisseur Bishlouk Note

Bishlouk gave this whisky 87 points

Nez sherry, sur les raisins secs, le tabac et les épices. Fraîcheur mentholée après aération.

Un peu mou en bouche au premier contact, puis ça s'équilibre. Une certaine "dureté" en bouche, beaucoup de bois épicé et légèrement fumé.

Finale très poivrée, sécheresse fruitée.

Si réduit, réduction bien maîtrisée. Agréable dans son ensemble, avec un petit bémol sur la bouche qui contient un "quelque chose" qui m'est nouveau, particulier mais un peu "bizarre".
