  1. zinaf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I prefer it without water. It is at the right strength.

    • Nose
      sweet, burned rubber, smoke, porridge, herbs.
      water: some funny notes appear - plastic of some kind. Not unpleasant at all. also some turkish delight.
    • Taste
      sweet, nice sherry, gentle smoke, marzipan, bitter almonds. good body. with water becomes more mellow and less sweet.
    • Finish
      long, starts on sweet notes then gently drying but never with too obvious wood.

    Sengaia, did you also tasted this one on the tasting in Velp?

  4. sengaia scored this whisky 82 points Expert Junior

    Too simplistic given it's age, and a bit woody.
