  2. dRambo scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    one of the most intense 43% malts I've ever had - very spicy and nut / chocolate dark with intense toasty aromas - I would never have thought of a Balvenie or even a Speysider - could be 25yo ++ too - flattering and spicy. The style is not 100% my thing but the quality is impressively high and the malt has a very high recognition value.
    • Nose
      starts mild and sweet - honey, raisins, wax, furniture polish, grassy - freshly cut meadow, very beautiful juicy oak, anise, lime, lemon, bay leaf, caraway, rose water
    • Taste
      herb - tobacco, ginger, pepper, walnut shells, dark chocolate, hazelnut cream, pine resin, tree sap, - spicy intense - only very subtly fruity dried fruit, dates, raisins - tender bitter spicy oak, dry, sherry acid - compared to the 12er and for the low alcohol content an absolute oak board
    • Finish
      dry, dark chocolate, walnuts, coffee - medium long with a tendency to be too long
