  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    This blindsample is unusually mild and creamy, yet it is very complex and complex. The different flavors such as muff and moder play with nuts, dried berries and oranges. The alcohol is finally wonderfully integrated, although it shows up immediately on the first nosing dominant. Balanced and tasty, although this malt is very well balanced and mature, I would nonetheless be tapping on a young malt.
    A great and delicious bottling, I like it very much.

    • Nose
      After panning, an oily streak has formed on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter from the long drops relatively quickly pull their tracks back into the glass. While the malt shines bright amber in the glass roasted aromas and dried berries rise up. The first Nosing tickles the alcohol immediately in the nose, a slightly musty modriges thumb comes to the fore. Hints of sulfur follow, abrasion of orange peel mixes with velvety vineyard peach. Dark caramel and nuances of milk chocolate dissolve from the dark fruit mixture. The caramel is sweeter, the musty muff pulls back and leaves the velvety peach full attention. Sugar beets and dates come to light, as well as floral notes. Subtle hazelnut aroma slowly stimulates salivation ...
    • Taste
      Creamy and mild, the first sip flows over the tongue. Ground hazelnuts and almond are dusted with a pinch of cinnamon, the dried berries and grapes are mild and sweet. Once again, the abrasion of orange peel, this time in conjunction with citrus flavors. Mild grapefruit drips on spicy, slightly tart wood elements and dark roasted aromas mingle with biscuits and crumbs of butter biscuits. Tart walnuts show off their green and grassy side, the taste and aura blur together.
    • Finish
      A light prickle is on the tongue, tart and immature walnuts swim under the tongue. Dark and dried fruit flavors penetrate the palate and dress it with pleasant warmth. Slowly, musty and musty notes are brought to bear, a hint of pepper settles on the tongue and lets smaller pearls dance again.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty full-bodied-tasty whisky, and although the individual flavor components are not so far away from his brothers Regalis and Luceo, everything fits together here, I find nothing to moan, nothing bothers, maybe he is older, maybe better composed, maybe also help the 3% more. 70-80 € you can already give.
    • Nose
      first fresh lemon / orange, then leather, nut, sweet, fresh tobacco, sweetish-aromatic woody, a hint of licorice
    • Taste
      first very creamy-caramel, toffee, then tart, intense, cocoa, plum jam, dark berries (cooked), a hint of sugar beet syrup (this tart and sour acidity), tobacco, black tea, rather full-bodied
    • Finish
      medium length, medium-bodied, pleasantly supple, slightly warming, cocoa powder, sugar beet syrup, plum jam, some cinnamon, very gentle pepper

    Some tertiary off-notes on the start. Once these clear the sherry notes come to the front.
    Palate is better then the nose.

    By far the best!
    • Nose
      87 87
      ripe, leather, tobacco, coffee, gaaaanz delicate smoke ?, dark flavored fruits (cherries, blackberries, plums), lots of spices (cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, mace), almost a vinous note, some stable (less than before) resonates , but fits in very well. Great nose!

      not watery at all! spicy, sweet, really creamy and oily. The 43% save him, they would have just filled the other so ...
      lots of tobacco and coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, spices, marmalade, malt, honey cake, Moods
    • Finish
      85 85
      at least medium (6/10), the honey cake stays nice and long

  9. Classic scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A very well-balanced and interesting whisky, which can convince both in the nose and in the mouth.
    With 46% he would be a buy recommendation.

      dark fruits, raisins, some mint I have, nut, nice spiciness.
      A little bit of Hanuta, nougat with nuts.
    • Taste

      dark chocolate, espresso, forest fruit jam, earthy, tobacco
    • Finish
      85 85
      quite long, tobacco, honey and a nice spiciness are fading slowly

  10. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    All in all pretty delicious, I like the well, the cheapest stores offer around the 70, - € a realistic price. However, he should have 46% quiet. Overall, a harmonious balanced whisky that does not overtax anyone.

      In any case, a completely different league than Regalis and Luceo, tidy from the start, no fermented fruit or fruit, no yeast, no grapefruit. But no chocolate and no cocoa. Very sweet, extra sugared raisins, dry berries or something, dark fruit punch, something nutty and actually some leather, but not necessarily black. Overall, quite dark. I can find licorice, the sweetness and the raisins are somewhat in the background, becomes fresh, light citrus notes, but more like scorza d'arancia, is now increasingly spicy. I can also confirm cloves and cardamom. When it pays to invest some time, something is happening. I would not say smoke, but maybe Bruichladdich Stable, maybe you can confuse it ...
      Warms up a whole tobacco plantation with proper coffee, interesting, but not really mine. The Dalmores do not all like heat so much. But he will, if he cools down again really really delicious. Jo, I like the nose!

      Well, I think that even with 43% still very watery, but the alcohol is now stronger, but also softer, the sharpness is out. Overall, the 3% more gold is worth, in any case, a step in the right direction. Otherwise also very tidy in terms of taste. Here again I have chocolate, dark honey, some liquorice, and coffee and tobacco at the back. Exactly, beet syrup, thanks Marko!
    • Finish
      82 82
      Lots of tobacco and coffee, reminiscent of Kahlúa, much longer than the two predecessors, but then suddenly disappeared, as if there had never been anything.
