  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. 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 !!!

    Unbelievably horny, ingenious material! What a nose! Fantastic! Marzipan, nuts, dark fruits, chocolate. Insanely delicious. In the mouth he flattens off a bit, but one is rewarded with a nutty and PX sherry accented long finish. It was even cheap in 2014/2015 with around 50 €. Measured by the current price levels that is ridiculously favorable for the conditions (15 years, 46% vol.) And for the flavor cargo. Who has the chance to get hold of a bottle. Up to 100 € you can give in my opinion. Absolutely delicious.

    Sweet piece. Nice full, heavy and solid taste. Greatly balanced and mature.
    • Nose
      Mature, rather sweet, with chocolate and slightly nutty notes.
    • Taste
      Greatly mature feeling, heavy, solid, full character. Chocolate, a bit of candy sweetness, fruitiness in the back.
