  1. Mephisto scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Too expensive, because complexity and balance is missing. However, very interesting initial sweetness.

  2. Mephisto scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The initial sweetness with a unique taste disappears or turns into extreme bitterness.
    • Nose
      Green apple, very fresh. A hint of malt. Bulb and quince. Full of fresh and "bright" fruits. Behind some young wood. Amaretto or marzipan and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Malty syrup, very sweet at the beginning. Candy or caramel. Bitter almond or marzipan again. Combined with the strong oaky bitterness a nice contrast in general, but a bit too much from my point of view.
    • Finish
      A lot of strong bitterness and spices. Hazelnut and bitter almond. Dark wood.
