  1. Jonathan Kleß scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Medium, old-style. Rusty metals, tin boxes and tools, wet humus, rotting leaves... A fresh green apple note and some linseed oil. Celery stalks.
      Maybe a whisper of some earthy peat and heating oil. Very metallic, but not in an unpleasant way.
      With time I get smoked ham and even a good bit of honey. White pepper. A couple crushed macadaia nuts.
    • Taste
      Pretty rich and oily on the arrival, with good presence aswell. More of the green apple with an added citric kick. Unripe plums. Barley sugar and fresh oats. Beetroot.
      A soft, nutty component: hazelnut crumble and almond butter. A small petroly touch, but nothing distinctly peaty.
    • Finish
      Medium, longer than expected. A touch of smoke at the start, with then more nuts and a slightly sweet, rooty undertone.
