  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Hmm, the nutmeg was really nice to start with, but the nose is generally quite gentle and reserved, you have to sniff deeply, the finish is not that long either, both of which deduct 1-2 points at the end.
    • Nose
      Dark, old, crumbled fine chocolate, mocha, with raw salt, liquorice, green apple, camphor, quite fresh leather, a touch of black pepper, fresh nutmeg, green tea
    • Taste
      Ui, very nice, present nutmeg, like a room fragrance or dissolved in tea, fennel, eucalyptus, leather, walnut, old books, dry algae, roasted nuts, capers, olives, lime peel, fine salt, camphor, rye bread
    • Finish
      Capers, salt, seaweed, camphor, Earl Gray, pear, apple, medium length
