  1. dramspotter scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Great nose and the palate is no slouch. The finish is what loses some marks for me.
    • Nose
      88 88
      allspice, hot cross bun, wood shavings, xmas cake
    • Taste
      87 87
      so soft and warm, then it starts to go dry; you expect this to taste more like a condensed spirity PX given the nose but it isn't like that
    • Finish
      81 81
      medium; lots and lots of tannins here

  2. ApricotOne scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Dark fruits, leather, dark chocolate and a hint of licorice and cinnamon. The combination of barrel and distillery character is very balanced, the barrel is not too dominant. This malt is good for water and invites you to experiment Too bad that the prices shoot for some time duch the ceiling.

  5. PeterCr scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Very nice dram with good dynamics and very good balance in sweet, spice and acidity. Clearly PX sherry giving some nice dark choco notes!

    Score 90-92.
    • Nose
      Lovely chocolatety nose, loads of dried fruits. Whiff of earthiness, maybe some tobacco leafs even. PX sherry is clearly there.

      Also some coffee is there.
    • Taste
      Without water: again sweet chocolate and coffee notes in the beginning. Followed by a little heat (pepper, ginger?). Decent tears in the glass giving a rich full body.

      With water the spice is slightly toned down. Doesn't need water in my view!
    • Finish
      Without water: long mouthwarming finish starting spicy ending a little dry with sweet toffee and some liquorice. Again also some oak and tobacco notes.

    Notes from the distillery
    • Nose
      Ripe dark cherries and spiced mulled wine hold a back note of rich stewed barley and hints of ground almonds.
    • Taste
      Powerfull dark prunes and rich dates drenched in crisp orange bitters hold a dark roasted coffee bean depth alongside hints of red chilli spice
