  1. etwa77 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    almost holy.. i smell incense.. black tea is very.. cold ashes

    this surely cannot be over 60 abv.. evanescence.. it evaporates in the mouth.. closer to a high voltage cognac than a malt.. i especially like the smoke, it envelopes everything, without taking center stage..

    small explosions on the tongue keep on… i honestly did not expect to like this whisky as much as i did!

  3. Roland7 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    It seems older than his years. Black tea, cedar, cloves, tobacco, toasted bread, smoked cheese, iodine, electrical wiring, jerky, almonds and, oddly enough, menthol.

  4. grinface did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Somehow one-dimensional and sweet. But in a good way. The alcohol wasn't nearly as present as I would have expected. Overall not in the top category.

  5. wncvirus scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Sweet smoked sherry
    Taste: Super complex whisky with intense sherry flavor accompanied by smoke. Nice combination
    Rating: 90 | 100 I think it is worth recommending. Finish whisky nice pleasant relatively long. I am curious how this pose would taste if it were a bit older
