  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A great malt with a lot of power!

    [Color] dark mahogany wood;
    • Nose
      clearly Port wine, strong smoky note, spices;
    • Taste
      strong onset, full of spices, fruits, port, oak, over all smoke; despite 50% no alcoholic sharpness!
    • Finish
      long and spicy, smoke fades away slowly;

    • Nose
      Peat, medicinal (plasters), licorice, raisins, oak. After a few drops of water; Blossom, cherries and other red fruit, almonds. The medicinal odor largely disappears after adding water.
    • Taste
      Oily mouthfeel. Peat and cherries, plums. Also a lot of spiciness.
    • Finish
      Saliva-forming long aftertaste, with notes of ripe cherries. Clove.
