  2. Hemdl scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Grandiose nose, which the rest of the malts can not quite reach. Unfortunately, in my eyes, a bit too bitter aftertaste, what the overall score somewhat verhagelt. Anyone who likes to take his time to get away with malts should be happy here. All in all, a nice malt that can not justify today's prices.
    • Nose
      Subtle oak in the background, in front of it massively juicy oranges, ripe fruits and sweet honey. A hint of floral notes. It makes you run into your mouth at the first breath. Gorgeous old-school flavors, no junk notes. Eerily present in the glass, which does not need a start-up time to develop.
    • Taste
      As expected, a rather mild representative, the 40.0% Vol. Contribute to a considerable extent. Again, dominated by sweet fruits, even if I can not find the distinctive orange note from the nose right away. Here it is more like red apples, licorice and a slightly buttery note, without certain parts stand out. Very pleasant, but does not quite reach the (fantastic) nose.
    • Finish
      The sweetness of the fruit disappears quite fast, it is now much bitter and slightly bitter. No dryness, but the barrels are still noticeable. Overall medium-long finish, then missing - for me - then a few percentage points. For me unfortunately the weakest part of this bottling.
