  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The whiskey promises fruity and sweetness in the nose (although not very convincing smell), but in the taste it stays far behind, a peppery taste takes over. The addition of some water reduces the sharpness, but does not really bring out the other flavors.
    The finish is reasonably short and considerably less peppery.
    All in all a not very convincing dram considering his age and price. It is certainly not bad, but expected something more.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The fresh, fruity and sweetness of the fragrance barely comes back in the taste, because there is a peppery sharpness. With the addition of water, the sharpness disappears, but it does not really bring back the other taste.
    The finish is on the short side, in which the pepperiness is now much less pronounced, and what honey comes through.
    • Nose
      fruity and sweet, banana, vanilla, fresh, chocolate, cake
    • Taste
      Firm and peppery, with some more banana, honey, vanilla
    • Finish
      Reasonably short, dry, spicy, slightly peppery, and some honey-like sweetness
