  2. peatbogger scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    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.

  3. 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.

      Very spicy, intense licorice. Acts even slightly smoky. Served with vanilla, cooked fruits (apple, banana) covered with honey. Fruit gum. Candied pears. Perfumed floral, delicate. Dried resin. Honey scented candles.
    • Taste

    • Finish
      87 87
      Vanilla, butterscotch, licorice. Spicy, sweet, long lasting. Cooked fennel and licorice. Sparkling spicy on the palate.

  4. 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!

    Nice change, easy drinking and cheap.
