Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSerious special nose. Cherry overload. On coffee, black tea, still round. Rather extreme, this one has spent a few months in a cask I'd guess. Very rare style, on massive wood, but still round, the bitterness has almost evolved into something else. Fruits in there also and lots of them. Seriously complex and winey. Hm, wow! Taste is also, wow! What on earth is this? Huge complexity on so many things, leather, coffee, dried fruits, cherry kernels, still round and attractive. So special. What an experience to drink this one. I love it.
Krishna NukalaConcoction of rich dry fruits. Dark chocolate. A whisky that spent some time in a quality cask. Lots of complexities. Briliant, delicious and spicy- Looks like sister of 141 (which turned out to be a Yamazaki). Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013
