  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    It's delicious. Dirty, strong, crisp, intense, lots of aromas ... not round, harmonious, easy drinking. But 85-90 € are a little too self-confident, because I still miss the last kick, something special, and strength.
    • Nose
      after a while it becomes softer, velvety, toffee, milk chocolate, raisins, a hint of cinnamon, brown sugar
    • Taste
      strong, crispy, tangy - that's earth again, salt, citrus fruits, to it biscuits, some pepper, wood, nut, candy ... unlike other tasters, I find it not creamy, not homogeneous, rather "confused", but not in the negative sense, but more like muesli or trail mix - mixed, grainy, meaty, what to bite
    • Finish
      long, strong ... on the palate a tart sweet cocoa sugar beet syrup note, then long heat, pepper, salt, oak

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Hui, the nose stands out clearly from the "competition". On the one hand very fruity with sugar sweet notes, on the other side dirty, wild and with fine associations of sea salt and algae. The fruity part is dominated by sweet peaches, pineapples, mandarins, lemons and oranges. Hints of ripe forest berries linger in the background. Caramel, walnuts, oak spices, tobacco leaves and salt complete the multi-layered nose. Even after 15-20 minutes, I discover more flavors. Makes you want to more!
    • Taste
      The complexity continues seamlessly in terms of taste. The mouthfeel is very oily at first, warming and at the same time stimulating saliva flow. The alcohol content of 46.3% is very well integrated and ensures an intensive transport of aroma. The sweet notes are present immediately, but also spices / herbs and wood notes follow almost without delay. Very interesting! The taste of juicy oranges stands out, but peaches, dried fruits and caramel sweets are also present. On the side of heavy aromas, I perceive a noticeable oak spiciness, followed by herbs, salty dark chocolate, light roasted aromas and nuts. Wonderfully multi-layered and balanced.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. The sweet fruits set the last accents on the palate, before clearly maritime and spicy notes take over the flavor upper hand. Dark chocolate, herbs and oak dominate the finish at the end. A slight dryness occurs, but without becoming unpleasant or furry on the tongue.

    Eyes: Orange and yellow smell. Nose: A little fermented grain, damp sesame peanut candy, wet dough, multi-grain biscuits, a little freshener, a little floral and some oxidized taste. The traces of the barrel are obvious. Pour it out and wake up. It will be much better.
    Taste Palate: a very heavy bitter bottom, almost spit out...canned fruit, very irritating, as if chewing chili, wood flavor, a little wheat bran finish Finish: long, bad wood, Peanut skin, rice wine body: light, with tannins

    Nose: 83/100
    Palate: 75/100
    Finish: 75/100
    Body: 75/100
    Overall: 77/100

    Overall: I remembered the fear of being dominated by Gran Kunch 12.

    A beautiful fabric, very great barrel, not the hint of a false note, everything great complex, delicious and juicy and fruity, very tasty and yet with nice corners and edges. What a pleasure that I got the bottle cheap. A real treat. Tobermory can do it!
    • Nose
      Nice, clean and clear sherry nose. Immediately very fruity. Oranges, pears, peaches and honeydew melon, some mint behind. Very gentle, fresh and round.
    • Taste
      Great, sugar-sweet start. Very fruity and oily, wonderfully integrated alcohol, great creamy mouthfeel. Sweetish and tart notes of orange and honey first, then tingling sensation on the edge of the tongue, slight ginger and chili sharpness, a few grapes, very slow transition into the delicate bitterness of a dark chocolate candied orange peel, later bergamot (Earl Gray tea). Everything is very round, soft, oily, spicy, sweet, sour and spicy. Great great compexity. Very juicy impression, extremely fruity-juicy and then slowly drier.
    • Finish
      Beautiful, soft, long finish, no tannins, exactly metered barrel influence, not too much and not too little, not too bitter, yet spicy, not too furry, but still nice and dry. Sweet oranges linger a bit longer in the mouth, as well as the gentle tingling of chillies.

    Strong and fruity with a dirty note. It fits exactly as it is. Unfortunately, I can't see the manzanilla finish.
    • Nose
      It's completely different, the first impression is dirty and musty. This is followed by a great orange note and salt. A little caramel and the oak can be clearly felt. Later a touch of peach and honey. That's fun.
    • Taste
      Oily on the tongue and a strong start with lots of pepper. Nice fruity notes of oranges and peaches with nice spiciness as a contrast.
    • Finish
      Here, too, the great oranges and peaches, long-lasting oak seasoning and salt.

    • Nose
      88 88
      It bites the nose at the beginning, followed by sweetness, citrus fruits, toffee, rock candy, raisins, over time spice notes and a little salt appear.
      A great smell but for one point it is too straightforward, but elegant.
    • Taste
      88 88
      strong, fruity and sweet at the beginning, followed by wood and nuts (dominant and dry), salt and citrus fruits. The sugary taste remains, but not as rock candy rather than buttery biscuit. About the mess, I have to
      Marko_I agree. It takes time to sort it out and it's kind of fun too.
    • Finish
      86 86
      long, strong, dry. As if a sweet praline was breaking down into a tart chocolate on the palate.
