  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This surprising blended malt (here is no grain, for clarity) is a nice addition to the Galaxy Series of Mark & ​​Manny's Malts!
    • Nose
      The nose starts a little shy, but if you give it some time and warmth, it opens nicely. Then he offers a panoply of aromas including caramel, hazelnuts, prunes and rum-encrusted raisins, with a hint of espresso. It evolves into a nice mix of stewed fruit and some sweet butter. There is also a herbal side with a hint of garden herbs. Finally, a big portion of snuff and a spoonful of muffins. Very layered, very risky.
    • Taste
      It is deliciously creamy to taste, but quite powerful. A rough bolster with a soft pit, you know? Immediately sweet on nuts, caramel, plums, supplemented with dates and sultanas. A lost mandarin appears. The herbs of service are clove and licorice. A hint of cinnamon. No trace of oak, but the more fruit.
    • Finish
      The wonderfully warm, long and spicy aftertaste sizzles for minutes. Only on the deathbed does a slight bitterness of the oak appear with still that beautiful spiciness.

    Color AmberNose It starts a bit shy, but with patience and hand warmth it offers up a panoply of aromas such as caramel, hazelnuts, plums and rum raisins with a hint of espresso. It evolves towards a mix of stewed fruits and sweetened butter. There is a herbal side to it as well. Finally some sniffing tobacco and a spoonful of mocha pudding. Very layered and... frankly, quite dared.Palate Wonderfully creamy and very powerful arrival. Immediately sweet on nuts, caramel and plums, upholstered by dades and sultanas. Some mandarin. Cloves and liquorice. A hint of cinnamon. Not a trace of oak, but all sweet fruitiness.Finish Wonderfully long finish that remains fruity, sweet and spicy until the death, at which point a slight bitterness appears.Comments Let yourself be surprised by this succulent blended malt.
