  1. Segens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A lovely experiment to try between the several casks where I prefer this one a bit more as it is more elegant and smoother! 90 points, well done!
    • Nose
      The nose is better implemented than WID 71984 and more balanced. Not a lot of differences in the palate that I described in the 71984 but it is simply more elegant.
    • Taste
      A sherry bomb same as 71984 but not as much as it (same as the nose) more elegant and smoother!
    • Finish
      The finish is not as woody/oaky but also not too much cocoa powder compared to 71984 but therefore sweeter and more fruity!

  2. Mannheimer scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    What an experience ...
    The palate is the best part for me. Such an intensity is relatively rare in the glass.
    You have to like it, is not someone's thing
    • Nose
      Poaaah! In your face! A sherry / oak freight cuts me off the stool ...
      Extremely intense, lethargy comes over with dark fruits, dates are dominant here, accompanied by raisins. Trace of alcohol (very light), oak notes become drier.
    • Taste
      Spicy on, much dark chocolate, even dark chocolate (tastes like 70% cocoa) then dates, sherry wine.
      Then you get an avalanche of cocoa / coffee afterwards, which makes it even more interesting.
      Then comes blood orange / mango in the finish.
      Hammer part!
    • Finish
      Sherry wine, espresso, oak, tobacco leaves
