KyotoLefty (8369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle from Seiyu. Rich, very rich malt nose, chocolate fudge, caramel, raisin, touch of smoke, bit of mineral and more dried fruit. Dark brown with orange, clear, thick lace. Super rich, luscious malt flavor, lots of treacle, raisins, dried plum. Earthy, bitter finish. Full body. Good stuff. Especially for the price.

Maukas ja varsinkin vahva. Vähempikin viina olisi riittänyt, mutta kaunis kalija kaikki tyynni.

fantti (848) - FINLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu snifteriin punaisen ruskeana ja kirkkaana, noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on kuivattujen hedelmien aromit. Sen lisäksi löytyy sokerisuutta tai hedelmäkakkuisuutta ja pähkinää sekä paahdettuna että paahtamattomana. Marjaakin on hieman. Kaiken kaikkiaan hyvin maltainen aromi. Maku alkaa hyvin makean hedelmäisenä, sen lisäksi on toffeeta, paahdettua pähkinää ja jopa hiven paahdetta sekä marjaisuutta. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja melko makea, mutta jälkimaku hivenen ontto. Vanha rakkaus uudelleen maistossa ja toimii edelleen, vaikkei yhtä hyvin kuin aiemmin. Makea ja monipuolinen maltaisuus hallitsee tätä scotch alea.

Hikeg (190) - - SEP 23, 2015
Pours clear deep red with minimal head. Aroma is sweet, cookie, honey, raisin, skunky, cooked vegetables. Taste is heavy sweetness, almost no bitter, lightly sour, umami. Body is medium, palate is oily, carbonation is almost soft. Malty but that’s about it.
