  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Almost a Sherry monster, but not that thick and oily. Sweet dried dates, tobacco and top quality leather.
    • Taste
      Intense and woody, dark chocolates with dried dates, thin and light body, more towards red fruits and refreshing herbs, grapefruits.
    • Finish
      long, leather, orange chocolate liquor.

  2. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Body: Light and satin smooth.
    • Nose
      Cashew nuts. Complex.
    • Taste
      Gunpowder tea. Ginseng. Spicy.
    • Finish
      Just enough  bitterness to be appetizing. Salty.

  3. Fight65 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I'm a bit disappointed, for my taste was too long in the barrel. But the beautiful banana notes like it.
