  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Yummy, pretty yummy, that would be a NAS for the standard range around the 60 € or something limited in the Ardbeg / Glenmorangie price range (85 €), I would say, good litter, Cragganmore! But so ... that he "after 500 € tastes" I would not expect, but for the special release must come something that stings me from the stool, as must for NAS stop the absolute gods barrels ran. And he does not have that.
    • Nose
      warm, sweet, slightly spicy, not biting, but closed, difficult to "decipher", therefore some water: marzipan, cinnamon, oranges, canned apricots, old dry herbs, a touch of furniture polish and tobacco
    • Taste
      Cocoa! (very dominant), caramel syrup, with aromatic-woody, soft pepper ... and I also imagine a slight saltiness (?) ... chewing ... suck ... what mineral, earthy
    • Finish
      long, of course, cocoa, burnt sponge cake, some herbal liqueur, then pleasantly warm-peppery

    For me this one needs a lot of time to give the complete experience. The nose is excellent from the start onwards. Can also use a bit of water, which also benefits the finish a lot I found (shortens it though).

    Very drinkable, really not bad - just missing a little bit of any special character - I guess I would not buy a full bottle for that price
    • Nose
      Malty, citrusy, marzipan, hints of oak wood, also some green fruits - not really special
    • Taste
      Punchy, very oily, creamy, malty and citrusy mostly lemony again, some honey notes - same on the palate as on the nose
    • Finish
      Long and warm, more fruity  but also more oaky
