  1. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    TASTING NOTE by G&M;

    COLOUR: Dark amber.

    UNDILUTED:

    NOSE: Hints of summer fruits and autumn

    berries. Some delicate aniseed notes are infused

    with dark chocolate and marzipan.

    PALATE: An initial port edge - velvety and very

    smooth, becomes creamy. Hints of dried fruits

    with a subtle smokiness develops and a slight

    mint herbal note.

    WITH WATER:

    NOSE: A lingering rich port influence with

    hints of fresh citrus fruits.

    PALATE: Malty with dark chocolate influences

    and a hint of chilli.

    BODY: Medium.

    FINISH: Short and smooth.

    CASK TYPE(S): Fully matured in Port Pipes.

  2. granella2003 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Full flavor explosion that nice full and round, a real

    smoky aftertaste makes

    them perfect!

  3. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very good surprise, even if the complete maturation in Porto cask could embarrass the refractory people in Porto. An excellent powerful whisky to close a good meal.
    • Nose
      Powerful and fruity, Porto stinks from the barrel, spices and smoke
    • Taste
      Power of alcohol, sweet influence of Port (caramel), not bad of fruits (orange, plums), dried apricots. Spices (ginger, cinnamon) and slightly peat smoke.
    • Finish
      Very long drying, a little fruit, bitterness and smoke, a hint of salt on the tongue.

  4. MacMenM scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    like her/his sister batch 1 : interesting whisky
    • Nose
      fruity nose, smoky too
    • Taste
      rich and a lot of fruity notes, smokey
    • Finish
      again that gingery finish but with a lot of dark chocolate
