    This one just sold for over 300 pounds at Whiskyauctioneer. Somebody's reaping the reward for those fake accounts overrating this bottle, I suppose. Fake accounts such as Sherrymonster66 above.

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very similar profile to cask 4400 for Destillerie Kammer-Kirsch, rather different from cask 3804 for Whiskybase which is much heavier on the hazelnuts.
    • Nose
      Apple syrup, cherry, caramel, prune, pepper, almond and vinegar.
    • Taste
      More spicy, not opening up easily. Cherry, toffee, chocolate and apple. A little hazelnut, which increases when adding water.
    • Finish
      Chocolate, hazelnut paste, apple and cherry.

  8. Thermidor scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very close to 3273. A little less tannic and particulate-containing body plus a little more meatiness. More into coffee grounds than these are usually but very well balanced and it seems like this bottle puts itself together very fast after opening. No need to wait for a month or two to reach optimum as with some of them. Don't trust the generic username brigade voting this one 94-98 points though, it's no Bowmore 1966.

    I had 3250, 54, this one and 3273 open successively with quite a bit of overlap and although I really liked each and every one I'd say qualitywise they're 54 > 3273 > 444 > 3250.
