2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.62 points

  1. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Good. Harsh and alcoholic, but lively and diverse.
    Definitely go bourbon lovers of excerpts.

  2. alectron scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    This needs a LOT of time... but it`ll reward you.
    Transferring previous Note (2011.12.11) content into a Tasting Note.
    • Nose
      First: green grapes & (unripe) net melon, dusty white
      chocolate/couverture,  oak (maybe a tad too much), a tad mineral,
      vanilla, also some grassy-ness,  malt, cinamon, (85)
      Later: turns
      sweeter after a bit, now as well notes of coconut, vanille kipferl
      dough, canned peaches, lemon & honey, a sprinkle of rose water, oak
      integrates much better, (88)
    • Taste
      quite alcoholic feel, malt, honey, distant bees wax and a bit mineral, (83)
      Later
      (+60mins): alc seems to have retreated, now a very nice upfront fruit
      & vanilla sweetness plus some  malt and the right portion of wood
      spices (90)
    • Finish
      then some red apples, more honey and a bit of
      wax, some cereals, vanilla, (85)  some very pleasant faint & elegant
      notes standing for a while if given enough time and a fresh palate. If
      these come through = (89). But these seem to be a bit fickle...
      Later:
      now coconut here as well, the fickle notes develop and come to the
      fore, but not much complexities going on as before, even though (or
      because) they were faint, rather a pleasant fade out. (88)
      Much later: there`s even some nice beeswax & pepper. (92)
