  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very 'dark' whisky in aroma's and flavours, without being too smoky. Very intense experience, great whisky. And I love the long lasting tobacco, as if I'm chewing a cigar long after sipping this whisky.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Mossy, moisterous autumn forest, organic. Then a lot of alcohol arrives, punchy. Bonfire smoke, spicy as well. Some dark tea, and some honey sweetness.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Strong, pepper, intense. Licorice. Some honey, and pure chocolate. Full body, now the bonfire smoke comes through more and more.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Still strong and powerful, sweet smoke, pepper, some bitterness underneath, dark chocolate. Licorice and honey, and a lot of cigar tobacco in the long finish.

    Nose: full wood smoke (pine trees), loads of black tea, black liquorice, sandalwood, smoked bacon, salty, nutty (salted peanuts and pistachio's), eastern spices such as coriander, cumin and thai ginger, also a tiny amount of mint and honey sweetness in the background.

    Taste: scorched and toasted wood, very dark chocolate with chili peppers, honied liquorice, Dutch salted liquorice. Needs only little water to open up the full flavour profile.

    Finish: very long - smoked wood and bacon, black pepper, black liquorice and Dutch style honeycomb liquorice.

    Great whisky (most certainly the nose), goes down remarkably easy for a bottling over 60% ABV.

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=278 Color: full gold Nose: salt, toffee, honey, leather, caramel, cream, pistachios, smoky malt and hints of peat. As good as without any fruity flavor, but delicious. Taste: Pepper-spicy and salty start! Chocolate, slight hints of licorice in brown cocoa. Cayenne pepper, underlaid vanilla and fruit flavors of green fruits and sweet green pepper, as well as chilli and Chinese grass. Finish: Long - still sharp and full of smoke. Lined vanilla in peaty broth. Salt and chili pulsate on the tongue for a long time. Sweet honey wanders through the sharp lobes. 91 points (nose: 91 / taste: 91 / finish: 91)
