  3. Waykid scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    This is the King of gunpowder-sulphur in my experience. Even the residue at the bottom of the glass was black  and coarse-grained powdery: an authentic gunpowder-maturation? Certainly a killer for true friends of brimstone, charcoal and saltpetre.
    • Nose
      Gunpowder in unforeseeable quantities. Maybe it was actually matured in gunpowder casks? From thereunder some coffee, watercolor palette, later also some very good notes of sherry (dried fruit, chocolate) and especially mocha. A pleasant sweet maple syrup with enough time.
    • Taste
      Still more gunpowder, at the beginning it is enormously hard to distinguish anything else. Then some sweetness and mocha, fiery and crisp. Some oyster and clam.
    • Finish
      Savoury, oystery, clammy, gunpowdery.
