  1. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Colour:
      Amber

      Nose:
      When pouring already came a nice grape aroma from the glass. Look what happens in the glass ...
      A bitter Sherry scent comes first. Very fresh and impetuous. Fresh sour cherries, peach and a little wet steel. Then come hazelnuts, a little nutmeg and paprika. Has something of pepper chips. Behind it is orange and lemon tea.
    • Taste
      Tingling, spicy start. Then it gets rather fruity. Am there again with peach and apricots. Honey sweetness with vanilla follows. The typical sherry flavors are there, but not really intrusive. Also in the taste a bit bitter Nussigkeit. Marzipan, subtly milk chocolate. The second sip I still have a nice, fresh sour cherry. A creamy, nutty mouthfeel. Has just something of hazelnut liqueur with pepper. And I also swallowed a fruit fly ...: D
      Sour citrus notes come at the end and clean up the field neatly from the back.
    • Finish
      Medium. Espresso. Then the nut again. Then a certain honey sweetness occupies the entire mouth.

    Many sweet sherry notes in the nose. Figs, fruits, orange peel. Sweet, tasty, but in the nose
    a little harmless. In the mouth again very strong at first, typical sherry notes, a little sulfur, toffee, spices. Very fine aftertaste on spices, dried fruit, a hint of tobacco

  6. HammerHead scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      86 86
      Spicy (pepper, curcuma, coriander) and salty, mildly sulfured sherry, toffee, raisins, dried apricots, dates, honey, leather, quite vegetal.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Full on flavour attack, needs some water to tune the initial alcohol bite down somewhat. Honied liquorice, fudge and butterscotch, spicy, raisins, dried fruits like apricots, quite some black pepper.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length: a little honey, dried fruits with a juicy feel, liquorice, spices like clove and mild wood bitters.

  7. Waykid scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    It is okay but not in the same category as the 001 batch, which was just brilliant. Also there the essential virtue was not versatility but a perfect balance of the narrow core. This one is a bit too young for me and not half as well balanced.
    • Nose
      At first, especially first months after opening the bottle the youth of it was a bit too much: homemade brew and yeast. But after that the smell I am used to associate these with came to the fore: taffy, malt and cereals, dried figs and apricots. It's compact and straightforward, rather concise.
    • Taste
      It's really closed and quite bitter, really needs water. When it opens up there is honeyed grain, malt, taffy and some chlorine.
    • Finish
      Pleasant malty toffee. Not very long.

  9. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Certainly a nice dram, but somehow I expected a little more of it.
    • Nose
      Sweet, caramel, some furniture wax. Fruit, raisins, some pineapple. Milkchocolate, honey, vanilla, biscuits, tropical fruit.
    • Taste
      Full bodied, strong, very light pepper, creamy mouthfeel, sweet, vanilla, honey, caramel. Some oranges as well.
    • Finish
      Pungent, warming, sweet, vanilla. Fruity, oranges and pineapple, pretty long. Peach as well, and some chocolate.
