  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Absolutely delicious! Meets my taste perfectly.
    • Nose
      Starts sweet, maggie herb, marzipan, creamy, light citrus notes, almonds, buttery, slightly herbal, some leather, spicy, very pleasant
    • Taste
      intense, oily, sweet, slightly dirty, chocolate, leather, sweet fruits, sweetened orange, maybe a touch of sulfur, roasted aromas, very pleasant despite cask strength, yummy creamy and sweet
    • Finish
      behind clear orange, as if one would drink the juice from a tin of tangerines, slightly dry, a little oak, here also the almonds, great aftertaste

    Also a great dram but cannot compete with the 2 younger ones. Maybe it was a bit too long in the cask. Great experience to have these 3 drams in my glass in one night.
    • Nose
      super sweet opening with brown sugar liquor, marzipan and oranges. So different to the 7yo red wine and 8yo Sherry. 
    • Taste
      leather, tobacco, raisins .. too bitter dry for me compared to the 7 & 8yo 
    • Finish
      The finish not as great the 7 & 8 yo as it is a bit dry and oaky with decent plum influence. A bit like slivovitz.. Nevertheless we talk about a great dram here

    It's better with water but unfortunately I really don't like the leathery touch - the leather boots - it's usually a little sign for some sulphur.

    I liked much better the 7yo cask 4903 or the 12yo cask 1490.
    • Nose
      Fresh, pure sherry notes, woody too, little citrus notes, little leathery, hints of dried fruits, subtle sweetness
    • Taste
      Punchy, fruity, sweet raisins, leather boots, woody

      With water more citrus fruits come out and the leathery touch stays more in the back
    • Finish
      Medium short, burning, fading away between the leathery and raisiny notes
