    • Nose
      87 87
      Nice thick nose, chocolate, meat broth, berries, coffee, also some hints of a fried steak and smoldering leaves. Vanilla pudding is also present. With time raisins are more prominent.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Chocolate mousse with red tropical fruits. Nice oily in the mouth, with a small dirty edge.
      Starts really sweet, later on some more metallic coffee notes (slightly bitter) come up.
    • Finish
      85 85
      hot finish, red fruits and a nice wooden bitterness. With some time some more rough edges are found, a nice soft peaty smoke tickles the tongue.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Excellent mold, classic sherry aroma with a penetrating base, thick, syrupy taste and spicy, refreshing finish; With time, the basis becomes larger with the predominance of sour-metallic notes.
    • Nose
      Clear, moist, the first nose - a raw barrel with a slight berry flavor; spicy oak, cappuccino, furniture-lacquered notes, lard, deep-fried vegetables, burnt caramel, dried mushrooms, earth shades, burnt crackers, fried nuts, in development more mineral tones.
    • Taste
      Tight, sweet, raisins, pedro hymenes, dried mushrooms, pu er, burnt caramel, leavened wort, light metal sour.
    • Finish
      Spicy, metallic sour cream, coffee, furniture notes, dried apples, menthol, over time, the base breaks - metal, industrial shades with sourness and sharp acuity.

    What a wonderful drink this is. Admittedly you pay nice for it. But I definitely want to have a second bottle of it, in case the first one is finished.

  9. Jonkers scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Great whisky and excellent in balance! I would really appreciate this whisky as an aperitif or just in the evening in an easy chair!
    • Nose
      The sweetness immediately falls. Then light fruit like strawberry, raspberry and red currant. Also some (white) chocolate and chewing gumball.
    • Taste
      Strawberry and other soft, red fruit like raspberry. A little bit oily.
    • Finish
      Medium finish with first a small but pleasant bitterness. Then very sweet, with strawberry predominating.
