  1. vredensever scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is very powerful: the mountains of dried fruits, resin, wood, bright spices, a little bit of chemist's minerality, chocolate sweets, thick burnt plum jam, dried herbs, tea, tobacco, smoke, smoked, dark chocolate, toasted seeds or kozinak, light wine note. The taste is sweet, bright: dark chocolate, boiled condensed milk, sugar candies, spices (vanilla, hot pepper), burnt sugar, smoked products, dark honey with bitter taste, smoke, lapsang-suhong tea, astringent oak. With a drop of water to become softer and drier, the bitterness intensifies. The aftertaste is moderately sweet, smoked, smoky, astringent, long. Conclusion . The type of barrel is not specified, but, it seems to me that without sherry influence there could not have been. Mighty, noble whisky. Terrific rich and diverse. A noticeable smoke-smoked note simply envelops. This is not an Aylov smoked style, it is an original phenomenon. It does not look like anything! Very cool! Rating: 96 (n24t24f24b24)

  2. very_bad_day scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A perfect combination between spices (cinnamon, clove, star anise, ginger), fruits (orange, tangerine, red fruits) and peat (not smoke).Very close to his big brother (#129374).
