  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Mjam, great nose, very delicious, but 130 € for 18er OA ausm Bourbon keg, not even whimsically limited or CS ... really, people? Praise it like Glenlivet 18 and it will be a hit!
    • Nose
      smells awesome, if only I knew what ... beautiful, slightly sweet fruit, so between citrus and pineapple, similar to golden bear knows, just a hint of ripe banana, some mint ... almost nothing dark / bitter, just a light aromatic dusty-woody note
    • Taste
      It starts with the same beautiful fruitiness as the nose, which I do not even downstairs again, maybe a little sweeter, then it becomes dry and velvety: cocoa, white pepper, wooden pencil, something cinnamon-like, but rather in a slightly bitter direction
    • Finish
      long, cocoa to coffee, pepper (or fine sandpaper with sawdust?), some licorice, very dry

  4. JungleDram scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    With two-thirds fill level and 1 year of ventilation, he finally reaches a point where he likes it in the end. Back then I filled up a fresh sample for comparison and as a result we have two completely different malts. Insane.

  5. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    fair puddle
    Direct comparison to other Tobermorys
    I liked it best with the Oloroso
    a great malt
    stand out in terms of price
    • Nose
      good vanilla, caramel becomes more, green herbs, sweet, pears and liquorice, dirty, spicy, gum

      later: sweeter, more vanilla !, Grannysmith, oak (fits)
    • Taste
      soft and full on the palate
      Brine, vanilla becomes more, older malt, peach + passion fruit, oak, dark caramel, a strange note (only at the first touch),
    • Finish
      medium long
      again peach + passion fruit, spicy, tart, coffee becomes more, exotic fruit, bitter

    • Nose
      90 90
      Vanilla and floral, sweet-malty with honey and maritime
    • Taste
      85 85
      Soft and filling the mouth. Again the flowers (a bit grassy, flower meadow), then some honey and oak.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Short to medium length and becoming dry, damp wood, slightly salty and something fresh like mint or black tea.

  10. wbarchive_104650 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Delicious Borubon barrel nose with a maritime touch. In addition a slight herbal note. The taste is slightly sweet, but very restrained. There could be more. Again the herbal notes. In the finish then come oak, citrus and again the maritime notes from the nose. Quite delicious, but the price is a bit over the top.
