8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Less fragrant but more spicy than cask 130...01, more like the typical grain I suppose. Therefore less impressive to me. 87/88.
    • Nose
      Glue, citrus, orange, pepper, cherry, caramel. With some water the glue is gone; more apple.
    • Taste
      Glue, citrus, orange, pepper, cherry, caramel and orange. With water some yellow raisin.
    • Finish
      Cherry, caramel, lemon, spice and tobacco.

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Quite an interesting whisky. Needs a lot of time, but does reward your patience. Very balanced, although it does mis the wow-factor for me.
    • Nose
      Needs a lot of time to open up. Lots of glue with some fresher notes of green apples as well. Plenty of coconut, as well as varnish and fresh wood shavings. Touch of cough syrup.
    • Taste
      Sweet oranges and mandarines with hints of glue. Some grapefruit as well. Quite fruity this one. Some creamy oak and sweet vanilla. Crème brûlée.
    • Finish
      Sweet fruits. Honey. Medium in length.
