  1. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice thing, I like it. The sweet thunders a bit powerful on one, yet he does not come over crushing. Notes from a blind tasting.
    In retrospect, I have to say that I would not have come up with it and I did not expect that, especially not nearly 65%! :)
    • Nose
      Strong spicy at the beginning, Sherry shimmers through. After a while, the dark, candied fruit notes become clear. Fat, buttery, sherry. If I did not know better, I would put him in Scotland. Heated, floral notes are added, the whole looks rounder, sweeter, set. And yet there is a distinctly spicy and salty touch.
    • Taste
      Very sweet with a clear chewing gum, not too artificial, rather the good, fruity. Overall, rather dark fruit characteristic. Strong in the start, come back slightly oak notes.
    • Finish
      He goes as he came, still sweet and not so short. He gets nutty very late to stay longer.

    One of the strongest I've ever drunk straight ...

    Violently ...

    Almost 65 volume%
