    Not my cup of tea, I can not get rid of those nasty gum-dead, otherwise of course very moist.

    A nice dram which is fully worth its money. No real PX Cask influence so not too sweet but still characteristic. I like this dram!

    • Nose
      The malt needs a few minutes in the glass until its flavors unfold. Sweet sherry. Raisins. Hazelnut and raisin chocolate. Behind it spicy notes. Bitter orange. Light wood smoke.
    • Taste
      Oily, the malt slides through the mouth. Hazelnut and raisin chocolate. Pickled raisins. Caramel. Mocha. Herbal notes. Some oak.
    • Finish
      Sweet at first. Fresh cookies with salt caramel and chocolate chips. Then spicy. Pepper. Oak spice. Dry finish with subtle wood smoke.

  7. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Great whisky, good Glen Els, is not quite enough to the Alriks ran, but can still many D / A / CH WHISCYS and a number of Scots in the bag.
    • Nose
      very sweet and spicy, light smoke ... chocolate, plum jam, prunes, slightly spicy / burnt ... reminiscent of plum wrapped in bacon, heavy-sweet wine
    • Taste
      very sweet, a lot of chocolate, again plum and a sweetish-burnt note, a little brandy
    • Finish
      long and bittersweet, burnt honey roast crust

  9. Wild Thing scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nice aroma, taste is ok, but nothing for which I would spend 80 ¬.
    • Nose
      Grapes Nut chocolate with a lot of sweet caramel and mocha. I can not find smoke ... A nice sweet aroma.
    • Taste
      Sweet and oily. Now, a bit of campfire smoke is coming through. He also has some cooling eucalyptus? Has something of orange cream chocolate with biscuits.
    • Finish
      Quite short with almonds and bitter orange.

  10. SteveW110 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The nose promises a whole lot of rich and full PX flavors and soft smoke!
    The artist 4 reminds me very much of the Alrik "Early Bird".

    However, the taste can not fulfill what the nose promises ...
    The artist is a bit too "watery" in my taste. -> So a nice easy drinking whisky =)
