  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    No, absolutely nothing for me, these are for me almost all false notes, more than any sulfur ...
    • Nose
      Acid-tingling in the nose, which of sparkling wine or as the review mentioned below me, rosé wine, a little artificial or like perfume (with too high alcohol content in the nose), dark chocolate, licorice, rose water, grapefruit, a little minty
    • Taste
      Also directly the very sour notes, rosé spritzer, bitter liquorice and young oak, mint, sour cherries, grapefruit with peel, all rather unpleasant for my taste, white pepper, paprika, wasabi
    • Finish
      Continue the acidity ... Grapefruit, young oak, pepper, short to medium through the bitterness

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great, my first from Riegger's Selection, I really like it. Very intense, idiosyncratic, tolerates water and very mature for 8 years.
    • Nose
      fresh, slightly spicy (peppermint, salt), fruity-dry wine (rose), rose water, very subtle dark chocolate note, slightly nut
    • Taste
      intense, creamy, dark chocolate, walnut, then dark-sour fruit notes, plum juice, sugar beet syrup, pepper
    • Finish
      long and bittersweet, dark chocolate, molasses and again neat oak / pepper

    It's different. And somehow I like it. Yet I might not need a hole bottle. 
    • Nose
      interesting nose. winey. red wine definitely but it also smells a bit like oloroso - and the red wine is not pure: there is something of the serious wine drinkers no-go: dense red wine plus coke. Or some Haribo "Cola-Fläschchen" swimming in red wine. funny perfume! there is also some of the more regular things like toffee, oranges, boscoop. 
    • Taste
      Initially surprisingly soft on oloroso, then sour cherry-fruits, gets quickly spicy on all-spice, pepper, ginger, some aperol bitterness, and, guess what, the wine-cola-thing   
    • Finish
      rather short mainly on ginger and wine gum.

    The nose is world class! I can sign that with the bitterness in my mouth! You have to like that and probably come from the Amarone barrel. Not a simple whisky and he does not lose that bitter touch even with water. Since I like that, I'm 87 points. Not for sweet wine drinkers!

  6. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Great nose, not so great (after)taste. Not my style. But I´m not that big of a wine finish fan anyway.
    • Nose
      Initially sweet. Very fruity. Somehow artificial. Like wine gum or jelly beans. Then again a quite spicy, dusty dry touch with quite some fresh oak that remotely reminds me of bourbon. In the back also a (sour) touch of wine.
    • Taste
      Very aggressive start. Sour from the beginning. No sweetness at all. Becoming more and more bitter. A mixture of fresh, bitter oak and sour, dry wine. 
    • Finish
      Fades away pretty quickly. The sour taste lingers on pretty long.
