  1. YuraLM scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Well balanced, simple enough
    • Nose
      At the beginning smell of coffee and walnut and then chopped grass, lime, and wine notes. And at the end smell of prunes
    • Taste
      Walnut, Porto wine, oak casc, chicory
    • Finish
      Long lasting enough, taste of coffee and chicory

  2. Cubey666 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Tasted at Whisky in Leiden 2017

    Compared to an older batch of the ConcertMaster this one seems more artificial, a but more hasted, watery and bit plain it seems

  3. eppelheimer scored this whisky 75 points Member Senior

    Nice new experience, but nothing for my bar.
    • Nose
      Exotic fruits and coconut
    • Taste
      Again the fruits and coconut, now also the port.
    • Finish
      Short, due to the young age no oak, but also no sharpness of the alcohol.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Nothing special.
    • Nose
      Nose quite lively and young, a little vinous, on green apple, balsamic vinegar, dried fruits
    • Taste
      Mouth powerful enough for 40% but alcoholic and young. A little green apple, some dried fruit, some vinous notes (quite true to the nose)
    • Finish
      Rather short, a little sweet.

  5. St. Pauli scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This one felt a bit as if two drinks were recently mixed together and don't form one entity. Good for evenings with friends, where chatting is the main ingredient of the evening.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, furniture polish, honey, dark fruit, dried fruit, glue, bourbon, clove, nutmeg.
    • Taste
      sweet (a bit sickly to be honest), barley, honey, biscuits.
    • Finish
      Oily, a little spirity, stewed plums, pepper.

  6. aprager did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Very pleasant. Nice alternative to sherry finishes.
    • Nose
      Port, Liquorice, Mango, very pleasant. With water earthy, cellar and musty oak
    • Taste
      As expected - plenty of port, sweet and chewy, raisins, chocolate and prunes. With water nuts, malt, less sweet
    • Finish
      Relatively short with sweet undertone
