  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    From the previously tried AnCnoc vintage I was very pleased - delicious, interesting, intense. All this is also true here, but this is so far the least pleasing, very spicy and spicy and also has good Bitter notes - certainly not for everyone.
    • Nose
      first creamy, vanilla sweetness along with a herbaceous-grassy bitterness, after a while in the glass merges both to a darker, spicy sweetness (sherry barrel?), caramel, chocolate, toasted cereals, cloves, some pepper ... slightly burnt and woody
    • Taste
      rather strong, spicy-spicy (pepper, allspice, nutmeg), wild honey and dark chocolate, a sweetish-bitter herbal note (ricola, herbal liqueur, a bit of camillan), licorice
    • Finish
      long, lots of pepper, ricola and liquorice, glows in the throat

  9. rottendon scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    It's interesting, this complete change from rather tart to sweet in the nose, then from sweet to harsh in the mouth and back again in the finish. He has what, enough to give him a punctuation in the clear front area.
    • Nose
      Fairly herbaceous at the beginning, it changes a lot with time, the nose becomes full in itself, sweet hints of caramelized cereal bars meet with a tender, slightly salty sweat note. Yellow fruit pulp floats over there, not even so easy on the nose, develops really interesting. The caramel warms up to the dominant note here.
    • Taste
      A very gentle and initially pleasant honey-sweet onset, before after a few seconds, the alcohol slowly unfolds its power and bring beautiful, strong and bitter herbal notes that are likely to come from the oak.
    • Finish
      These tart notes dominate the finish briefly, before a sucrose sweetener takes over completely. Just before the point where it would be uncomfortable.

  10. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    A nice spice driven dram with quite a nice palette of aromas. I can’t detect any dried fruits from the Spanish casks so they probably havent contained any sherry. But the spiciness the bring are nice and not overpowering.
    All in all a interesting whisky to sip.
    • Nose
      A rich, floral, spicy and full whisky with aromas with angelica root, ginger, steel, fennel seeds, hint of fenugreek, honey, wild flowers, vanilla, toffee, malt, grains, lemon, hint of orange zest, a hint of new leather, sackcloth and subtle oak.
    • Taste
      A powerful, rich, spicy and full whisky with aromas of pepper, honey, allspice, nutmeg, chamomile tea, dried flowers, licorice root, sackcloth, bayleaf, hint of salt, fennel seeds, curry leafs, subtle tannins, star anise, hint of cumin, citrus and oak.
    • Finish
      A medium long and slightly drying finish with aromas of spices, pepper, tannins, honey, herbal tones, hint of spearmint and spicy oak.
