  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Wow, a horny malt, just my thing
    the leather notes match Sherry
    • Nose
      Sherry, sweet, red fruit, raisins, slightly musty, leather comes, tart, dark caramel, old wood angeodert, light, tobacco
      with water: sweeter, less tart, dark chocolate, light peanuts
    • Taste
      strong and full on the palate
      the starts great, older wood, musty, dry, raisins is more, sherry comes great with Olorosoten (which are getting used to some)
      with water: softer, tart herbs, more sherry
    • Finish
      long
      warm, harsh, sherry
      with water: bitter, wood, leather is cool!

  2. Kaleva scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Rather strange whisky as for me. Quite charming nose (however, with some unpleasant sulfur hints) but the taste is unbalanced with bitter oaky side. Bitterness continues in the aftertaste. Interesting to taste but not really to enjoy
    • Nose
      Sweet, grapefruit, vanilla, red berries (currants, sweet cranberries), sulfur notes, water opens winey notes and amplifies sulfur
    • Taste
      Sweet, peppery, bitter oak, oatmeal, dark marmalade, burnt caramel, malt
    • Finish
      Long, drying, bitter, oaky, nutty
