  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=289 Color: Amontillado sherry Nose: Fresh cut oranges with lots of tobacco, smoke, leather, balsamic and cold espresso. Continue with ripe elderberry, blueberries, creamy-soft honey, vanilla and soaked cardboard box. However, the aforementioned heavy aromas are also accompanied by a rather subdued aroma structure: diluted, watery orange juice with floral aromas. Nearly perfect! Taste: Fat and spicy! Tobacco, leather (shoes), orange liqueur and a salty herbal spiciness with mild chili, fresh mint and Chinese grass. Towards the finish tighter and "darker" becoming; Mocha, coffee, roasted aromas, chocolate, wood, and elder notes. Finish: quite a long and spicy herb! All sorts of roasted coffee beans, mocha, chocolate, creamy cocoa and a hint of vanilla. In addition, leather, nuts, old newspaper and orange peel - fruity and quite smoky underlaid. Note: "Tobacco & Leather" dominate with dull fruit notes - top class !!! 94 points N: 95P / G: 94P / F: 94P
