  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Quite neat, you can see the 15 years and he is not overwhelmed by the finish, very pleasing
    • Nose
      Yes, you get PX here, it starts very sweet, a hint of raisins, but it gets good competition from oranges, slightly tart, which also goes a bit towards grapefruit, nutty, slightly waxy, creamy, lemon, a hint of furniture polish, almonds
    • Taste
      sweet, raisins, in short there is a floral note, but here too the full load of citrus notes, lemon, sour, but sweet, some oak, nuts, dark chocolate, quite intense for 46%, even if the mouthfeel reveals the drinking strength
    • Finish
      dry, nuts, bittersweet, grape skin, lemon, which is accompanied by a very slight sweetness at the tip of the tongue, very pleasant, medium length

  2. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Interestingly better cask selection than its counterpart from a few years back. Pehaps b/c of this being a more limited run?!

  3. Martin1965 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet sherry, exotic fruits, nectarine, tangerine
    • Taste
      Sweet fruits, sherry, light coffee notes, oak
    • Finish
      Medium, sweet and dry

      Great finish !!!

  4. Beaty-Tang scored this whisky 98 points Member Senior

    Incredibly awesome, ingenious stuff! What a nose! Dreamlike! Marzipan, nuts, dark fruits, chocolate. Insanely delicious. In the mouth it flattens a little, but you are rewarded with a nutty and PX Sherry emphasized long finish. It was already cheap in 2014/2015 at around € 50. Measured against the current price level, this is ridiculously cheap for the general conditions (15 years, 46% vol.) And for the flavor freight. Who has the chance to get a bottle. In my opinion, you can give up to 100 €. Absolutely delicious.
