    This is good. I like how the spice completely overcome the initial sweetness.
    • Nose
      Very sweet. Roasted vanilla, lots of vanilla. A hint of coco nut. Fruityness of orange peel and green apples. Leather cream that turn more into nail polish when the nose get to deep in the glass.

      And karloff is spot on with the cola jelly sweets, I like those... and they're really there.
    • Taste
      This one grows a lot if you roll it for a while. A small quick sip and it feels a bit weak and thin, but take a larger mouthful and roll it around and it gets more and more creamy and spices start to bite. Licorice and dark juicy cherries.
    • Finish
      Medium + lenght, sweet and warm on spices, burnt wood, and more licorice at the end.

  5. domani scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Compared to the bulls with and without age information, this does not get better with the time and air in the bottle. Little by little, the sweet aromas fade and the chemical component predominates - 08/13/2020
    • Nose
      79 79
      The first impression is sweet and fruity, orange, nectarine, peach oil, coconut milk, Smarties chocolate, black pepper, it remains ethereal but becomes more and more chemical in the glass over time, solvents, shoe polish
    • Taste
      77 77
      Strong, very spicy, texture is very oily, honey, a little liquorice, wine gum, black pepper, fresh herbs, bitter orange peel, mint, cocoa, dark chocolate, overall very spicy and aromatic
    • Finish
      75 75
      Medium length

  9. Nosingbär scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Very nice dram, 87/100. Refreshingly different than scotch, the sweetness is intense and delicate and is beautifully balanced by the spiciness. In addition cooked fruits - very good.

      Vanilla, butterscotch, licorice. Spicy, sweet, long lasting. Cooked fennel and licorice. Sparkling spicy on the palate.

  10. maltaholic scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    It has a nice aroma, if you like the sweetness of bourbon. But it also smells strong, fresh, fruity, very aromatic.
    Nothing stands out, everything is harmonious.

    Not the typical bourbon taste. The tastes ripe, old, ... great.

    Really good!
