  3. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The most 'dark' of the trilogy, both in color and taste
    • Nose
      Caramel, vanilla
    • Taste
      Caramel, pepper, 'dark' and spicy compared to the other two bottles in the trilogy. Less fruity

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Honey, apple, marzipan, orange, limestone, peach, vanilla pudding and galia melon.
    • Taste
      Beeswax, apple, almond, toffee, smoke and something puke-y. The latter is gone when adding water, which is an improvement.
    • Finish
      Almond, honey, caramel, vanilla and smoke.

  9. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    With water, it seems to lose balance. Overall a very good whisky.
    • Nose
      Sweet, succulent and fruity. Apricot, apple and banana, beeswax, honey, sawdust. Furthermore, it's a bit mineral and herbal (eucalyptus).
    • Taste
      Soft and oily, herbal (more on hay now), fruity on banana and apple, a little drying towards the end.
    • Finish
      Bold pepper, spices, eucalyptus and grass, unripe banana and peach.

  12. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The palate might be a bit too spicy for some, but the nose is just so rich. 
    • Nose
      Really fresh and inviting. Minerals (wet rock), only a small amount of beeswax. Some toasted oak maybe. A hint (and I really do mean a hint) of smoke. Ends on a fruity note with green apples and underripe banana. Very rich.
    • Taste
      Oily mouthfeel. Arrives with some chili pepper, followed by chalk and green apples. Fairly bold and a bit rough/unpolished.
    • Finish
      Drying, chalky and herbaceous. Fairly long.

    I do not think water is needed because it is so smooth.

    Very good.
    • Nose
      Nice fruity nose, reminds me of some of the later Lochside offerings. I get rich strawberry jam, a little blood orange and caramel mixed in with shoe polish.
    • Taste
      First impressions are very good, it is spicy on ginger and a little pepper. The sherry is mixed in with cinder toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium length and just a little drying.
