  6. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2007]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 443 that I bought for 144 Euro in June, 2007.

    [March, 2010]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 182 that I bought for 96 Euro in July, 2009.

    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 both times 90.  My notes state a rich and sweet nose and a taste with a very interesting wine finish.

  7. magic_slim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very good whisky, although I had some better ones from this distillery before.
    • Nose
      Mellow, fruity and rather fresh with notes of orange blossoms, honey and barley sugar. In addition there are weak oaky notes and and winey aromas, which come from the sherry cask and subsequent ACE in Madeira casks.  A very pleasant nose.
    • Taste
      Smooth and not very intensive taste with a spicy (green pepper) component. Notes of black tea, fruit salad, barley sugar, a little honey and eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Medium long, stays pleasant
