  1. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Well mine that is definitely not, something superimposed and unfortunately the wrong newmake. It is much more bearable and warm with life, so that really separates worlds, but not mine.
    I was on the verge of giving 82 points, but he warmed it up again. But I am absolutely sure that this malt will find its fans, it is definitely exceptional!
    • Nose
      Despite the age still fruity, juicy red berries, hardly any smoke. And ups, there they are, the violets. Warehousekalt definitely still bearable, let's wait and see. With service life comes a bit dusty basement and the smoke is a bit stronger. Warms up more violets, I stand in the violet field.
    • Taste
      In the mouth, I'm very disappointed, I have never violets in the mouth, but really nice are not so, detergent, or softener. It dries extremely fast and has a good load of tannins, borderline. The onset is extremely mild, the consistency is relatively thin. In the mouth it gets warmed up much better, to the strongly reduced violets join now also some unripe berries, which give the tannins also longer longer. However, he is not so mild now.
    • Finish
      In the finish, there is then charcoaled oak wood, damn long, definitely too long for me. Also works a bit metallic. Here too warmed up even more intrusive, which are now no violets, but pickled plums, for even longer, in principle, but makes the matter better, especially because they no longer look artificial. Oh man, is that long ...
