  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    the taste is convincing, nose and finish are a bit behind
    • Nose
      burnt pine cones, spicy, rather dry sherry, vanilla pudding, malty, caramel, some oak
    • Taste
      sweeter than expected, light smoke, malty, caramel, slightly spicy oak, chocolate and nut, not really fruity
    • Finish
      After the first sip hardly any smoke, after a second but clear, a little grape skin

  3. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Complex. Campfire smoke rises in the nose. Honey. Vanilla. Cinnamon. Plums. Poppy. Malt. Pickled cherries.
    • Taste
      Sweet. Brown sugar. Vanilla icecream. Black Forest cake.
    • Finish
      Long. Lovely. Smoked ham. Malt. Oak. Poppy. Vanilla. Towards the end smoking again with salami.

  4. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A very decent dram, albeit my weakest GE so far.
    • Nose
      Light campfire smoke is above the whisky. Behind it is a fine honey sauce, some light grapes, biscuit dough and vanilla fudge. The nose is light and gentle. A touch of spice completes the picture.
    • Taste
      Smoke and caramel toffee hand in hand. Spicy and sweet, stronger than the nose. Vanilla, fruit cake, grapes, raisins and chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long with oak, raisins, chocolate and vanilla.
