  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I notice that there is a huge range of scores on this bottle and assume that some of the lower ones will down to sherry heads. On first nosing I thought I would not like this but it is actually a good whisky and takes water well.

    This is so much better than the much more expensive Loki.

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Despite the hype, the hip bottle and the "fretwork" a top malt, unfortunately at an exorbitant price;
    [Color gold;
    • Nose
      Boubon nose; sweet pineapple, honey, biscuit, malt, vanilla, little oak;
    • Taste
      intense sweet onset, strong, mouth-filling, pineapple, green tea, vanilla, spicy, creamy, buttery, complex;
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet finish; in the aftermath seasoning;

  3. dram-drinker scored this whisky 88 points Moderator

    A bit weak on the nose but pretty punchy on the palate, quite drinkable but does that justify that high price?

    However I like the very citrusy and lemony notes...
    • Nose
      Honey, malty, dry hay, hints of citrus fruits and vanilla
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, hints of coffee beans, citrus fruits, cough drops, good sweetness
    • Finish
      Long and warm, little zesty

  4. ffmdino scored this whisky 57 points Expert Senior

    All in all a good whisky but not a high flyer. tolerates a few drops of water
    • Nose
      a little vanilla and caramel, earth, some smoke, the alcohol bobs something
    • Taste
      Olive and soft on the palate, oak, salt, heather, honey, nice spicy and a bit bitter at the end
      with water the smoke gets a bit stronger
    • Finish
      medium to long, the oak is there, coffee and some smoke, later gum

  5. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A rather elegant whisky on the nose. The strong vanilla pleases. Acceptable on the palate without impressing, the finish is overall one-dimensional and too short.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Initially spices and sweetness, with a slight smoke. Gum and mint as well as increasingly intense and sweet vanilla. Some orange and soy sauce. Later smoked fish.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Spices and light fruits at the beginning, then malt and vanilla. The alcohol is strong.
    • Finish
      84 84
      A medium-long finish follows, which is dominated by bitterness and espresso.

  7. bikenerd scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I understand that this expression is too much of marketing and far too expensive for the price I bought it (290€), but the score should reflect the quality of the product and the quality is good even if the price is too high! - Maybe some scorers should think about this.

  8. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Grapes, peaches, honey, a little dusty, grasses in the background, orange, lemon peel, some soil, fresh wood, vanilla, apple, pear,
    • Taste
      Oha has a lot more power than I thought.

      Honey, cereals, herbal candy, lime, lemon, wood, coffee, pepper

  9. Deloti scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Weak nose, pleasant citrus and spicy peat in the mouth. Gets better as you drink it, still nothing extraordinary (apart from its price)
