    hmmm ... that is very pleasing even if he demands a certain amount of attention. The change in the nose I could not understand as my poster. The overall package is correct, but I expected more.
    • Nose
      red berries (raspberries); slightly nutty; slightly dusted leather; a little spice; maritime; a salty note is also there; after a certain time in the glass it is getting sweeter; The leather is becoming more and more dominant with time
    • Taste
      oily; again very maritime and salty in the mouth; nuts again; semi-dry white wine; again a strong sweetie
    • Finish
      medium; Wood (oak); again maritime and salty; very subtle smoke

    Nose: First fresh, menthol, nuts behind, walnuts, some vanilla, stinging in the nose, but disappears over time, many raspberries come and alternate with the walnuts. The walnuts gain the upper hand again. Over time, the fresh menthol disappears and it becomes herbal spicy. Vanilla is still there. Slowly begins flow of memory. The walnuts become woodier. Teak wood. Leather mixes with it and makes the beautiful raspberries disappear.
    After the first sip, the nose becomes more pleasing. Kind of sweeter, as if the walnuts were candied now. Raspberries are no longer there. The spicy herbs smell a bit like smoke.

    Taste: In the beginning a bit woody, sweetness is there, but then again, gummy, somehow wine, but not dry, it tingles, then it is slightly peppery.

    Finish: Some coffee, wood holds. Only minimal bitter. Leather. A few gum fields are still there. The Spreiseröhre stays longer warn. In the mouth, on the other hand, it is already subsiding. After a few sips also slightly dry.

    Conclusion: I really like the interplay between raspberries and walnuts in my nose. Too bad that the raspberries disappear then. In general, tasting is not so easy for me and I could not say exactly which colors the gummy bears have. The mouthfeel is quite oily and beautiful.

    Lovely nose with all kinds of touches. A bit sad that the body is down to 46%. It misses some power to remain great.

    n: dark salted caramel. it has a coastal side with faint hints of ashes and soot
        behind the obvious sherry notes, roasted chestnuts and some earth. I find the oak a little loud.t:  juicy to oily, medium strong attack, spicy with allspice and nutmeg.
        rather sweet, almost a little dull, lots of caramel and dried fruits.
    f.  medium in length and still sweet.
    comments: a little too sweet for my taste, but still nice


  8. Cartman scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Nose: vanilla, black cherry, biscuit, thyme, ripe red nectar, tonka beans, roasted almonds, bananas, sea air Taste: Twix (milk chocolate, biscuit, caramel) oily, herbs like basil and thyme, but a slight piquancy as from allspice, leathery, heather, wild cherry, oak, plum cake, coffee, old wooden planks by the sea, some dust Finish: Medium length with light oak bitterness, the herbaceous spiciness and allspice remain for a while and bring along a slightly sweet maltiness.

    A complex taste bomb, very tasty!
    • Nose
      light and autumnal (in the fall foliage glowing trees along an avenue in wet weather come to mind), wrinkled red apples (more profound but also green apple), schnapps soaked cherries, old but not cracked leather and dusty books in the fireplace room (the name Although the whisky is not really determinative, it nevertheless hits quite well), some herbaceous, blooming, later clear caramel
    • Taste
      dry, very spicy (pepper, ginger), sherry sweetness and brown sugar, maritime and earthy, clearly salty, dried plums, creamy nougat, a light smoke
    • Finish
      long and spreading with a slightly tingling sensation, cinnamon; In the reverberation, I feel reminded of the acidity of fruit that still holds something

    What a lovely nectar. Great fruit and spice combination with lingering
    leathery notes and a touch of coastal aroma. Big and bold with a
    fantastic balance. Another great shot from IB Wemyss!

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with autumnal flavours of ripe plum and dark cherry,
      along with beeswax and a touch of sherry or even brandy. Polished
      mahogany aroma and leathery notes emerge, complemented by fragrant
      heather and a whiff of smoke in the background.
    • Taste
      Plenty of delicate sweetness here with luscious plums and a touch of
      leathery and earthy flavours. Pleasant spice with nutmeg, ginger, sea
      salt and cinnamon arrives. Very creamy and mouth-watering with maritime
      notes and subtle smoke in the end.
    • Finish
      Smooth and chewy with a long finale. Deliciously lingering plums, demerara sugar and a delicate spicy dryness. Beautiful!

      WITH WATER: There's less fruit on the nose with more alcohol coming to
      the fore. Beeswax aroma is still present. It is still fruity and very
      sweet on the palate with delicate and hot spices, oak, pepper and
      crystalised ginger. The finish shows a good length with luscious ripe
      yellow fruit and gentle smoke.
