  3. SchottenDicht scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose has some nice cake.Mouth: Sour, young. Some oak already, bitterness.
    Finish: Dry toung, metalish, young.

    Can't recommend it. Tastes like a 40€ bottle.

  4. p4blo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Slightly simple and young, but a very rich dram.
    • Nose
      Liquid Christmas cake. Red and yellow fruits, vanilla, milk chocolate, caramel, toffee and butter. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Sweet, creamy, milky even, mars bar with tons of sticky caramel and chocolate, some sherry-driven fruits, raisins and dates mostly.
    • Finish
      More of the chocolate goodness and some nice spices. Quite long.

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Tasty, surprisingly light, tick too citrusy, almost "sour"
    • Nose
      Somewhat closed, mix of dates, citrus, some pastries, rum, raisins
    • Taste
      Full but oily, somewhat "dusty", raisins, again citrus in between, red apples, berries, slightly spicy on the back & more subtle oak
    • Finish
      Medium-long, dry throat, oak, citrus and apple peel remain, few cranberries in between

  6. Segens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    92€ but less attractive than the 12yo from e.g. Kammer-Kirsch 

    Not worth its money, more likely 65€... Nevertheless you have a young sherry cask whisky that is easy drinkable.
    • Nose
      Ok the young years are smellable as the alcohol is not well implemented and the cask would have needed some more years of maturation. Nevertheless you may get young sherry notes so mandarines, peaches, a bit of apple/pear. Not really bad but some years would have really helped.
    • Taste
      Fruity but also quite sour start so you have apple/pear, fermented grapes and some herbs.
    • Finish
      The finish is good and semi-long and gives this dram a nice finish.

    LMDW tasting note
    Color: bronze with copper highlights. Nose: ample, lively. First, Havana notes literally burst out of the glass. It evolves on precious wood, wax and varnish before oscillating between heady flowers (honeysuckle), exotic fruits (passion fruit) and spices (cinnamon, saffron). A classicism of all beauty. Palate: clean, precise. His attack is striking. Candied citrus fruits provide a frantic tempo. The mid-palate is a little dry and reveals notes of toffee, nutmeg and heady flowers (mimosa). As it goes, it becomes exotic (kiwi, litchi) and new spices come into play (cardamom, caraway, coriander). It gives a very pleasant sensation of freshness. Final: long, powerful. The toffee has turned into a liquorice stick. Roasted nuts and dates have appeared. The volutes of Havana pass through the tasting area before ripe fruits (pear, Mirabelle plum) come to beautify the finish. The retro-olfaction has a very fine grain, almost sandy. The empty glass faithfully reproduces the entire aromatic palette. The circle is complete.
