  3. coldsun scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Paska, sweet cake, vanilla, barley malt, pickled vegetables, pepper spices, caramel, marzipan, yeast, baked potato. Taste brings explosive spices and zest, honey, tropical fruits, barley malt, vanilla, caramel.

  4. Torfding scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Pretty light for his age, but can do something right!
    Dry grass, lemon curd with a little banana, peach in the nose; the lemon also stays in the mouth, becomes more orangiger, much sugar and grain, spicy; long finish with reverberant lemon, maybe a bit nutty.
