  1. hs305 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    [February, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 99 Euro in December, 2015.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state a really nice wine finish but unfortunately this cask was treated with a sulphur candle.  The sulphury taste is quite dominant (I hate sulphur for that!) and that is a pity as otherwise this would have been a 90+ score...

    So if you do not own the "sulphur gene" or maybe you even like this diabolic taste go for this release - all others should shy away...

    The nose is very good but on the palate it is not even and the finish is too short
    • Nose
      Rich, complex, honey dew, melon, ripe fruits, bananas, brown sugar - very nice
    • Taste
      Punchy, gingerbread, subtle sweetness, woody
    • Finish
      Rather short - spicy and a tad bitter in the end

  5. moviemaniac scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Six years in French wine casks did not kill the previously ex-bourbon matured dram but added lots of fresh and sweet summer fruits and even more dry notes. Still very fresh and lively for 19 years – a summery whisky!
