  1. Malthead19 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    - a single cask that has it all
    - definitely not for beginners
    - alcoholic strength is still very clearly present,
    needs a lot of water,
    - aromatic, massive, intense but even if the bottle and the box are very nice and handsome, the price of approx. € 75 / 0.5 L is very ambitious for the quality shown and compared to independent bottlers (e.g. Signatory Vintage) then too expensive
    • Nose
      yellow sweet fruits, peach, sweet white wine smell, but also very clearly the high alcohol content
    • Taste
      o. water:
      strong, very strong, still burning start, very voluminous, strong development on the palate, still burns a bit, behind the alcohol there are fruity, sweet aromas such as mango etc. Peach, the sweet, fruity smell is confirmed in the taste, juicy yellow fruits;

      m. Water:
      remains very intense and voluminous in the mouth, but burns significantly less, still sweetish yellow fruits, oak now comes out more, becoming slightly bitter, hint of marzipan
    • Finish
      medium-long woody spicy finish;
      long, very dry woody finish, astringent

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    a very intense, powerful, strong malt - from my point of view it definitely needs water!
    PLV with 70 € for 0.5 liters already ambitious!
    [Color:] = gold
    • Nose
      alcoholic spiciness, fruits, tea, sweetness, vanilla (?), spices, wine, oak;
    • Taste
      with water: full-bodied, tingling and fruity (peach, mango); voluminous, sweet (honey), marzipan, slightly bitter, becoming dry;
    • Finish
      good medium length, sweet, finish; clearly (European) spicy oak aftertaste;

  3. breste scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A great creamy sweet finish, the Malt comes out well without water.
    • Nose
      Creamy sweet nose. Lots of fruit, ripe grapes.
    • Taste
      Despite the cask strength surprisingly soft. Sweet fruits, pineapple, banana. Very tasty and creamy. At the end it's peppery on the tongue. With water softer and rounder, but not as nice fruity.
    • Finish
      Medium-length, powerfully sweet finish.
