  2. Ostap scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Typical for sherry-bourbon holding pulling a rope. Cute aroma, not complex, but rather dense. The taste is level, but the aftertaste is bitter with oak. The age takes this whisky, but in general it is rather impersonal. Remembering such a whisky is difficult.

      Pleasant, soft, sweet pastry with vanilla, apples and plums, dried fruits, pronounced bourbon, many apples, in particular in the form of baked apples with cinnamon, the background is salty salmon, cream, honey, citrus notes, sponge cake. Over time, it becomes noticeably hereditary. Not spitual

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice fruity nose (apple orange cinnamon), wood (but maybe not enough for this age), sherry, which give way to a cereal granary atmosphere, and, progressively from a fresh nose to some very warm thing. The mouth, very slightly salty, is full, round, smoothed by time and dominated by tobacco, orange and wood "la Jura". I was expecting an explosion of wood compared to other expressions. I was disappointed from this point of view but without being frustrated because the other flavors are beautiful, simply. Enthusiasm 3/5
