“ausgezeichneter Vertreter der Hearts-Reihe! Tropische Früchte, Trockenfrüchte, Politur, blumige Noten, Toffee. Am Gaumen durchaus kräftig, aber die 63% sind überhaupt nicht ‚kratzig‘. Ich habe auch deutlich tropische Früchte Richtung Maracuja…Es fehlt jetzt der direkte Vergleich, aber aus der Erinnerung würde ich sagen, der kann sehr gut mit meinen bisherigen Favoriten, dem 93er, 94er und 84er mithalten.”

“No wonder Joy decided to put this into her anniversary blend. This is very good and might be the best mark/bottling from the hearts collection to date (side-by-side pending, though 🙂) Intense and rich on the nose with herbs, fruits and ginger. Amazing on the palate es well with candid ginger and fruits as well nice (and well balanced) woody notes. Superb stuff.”

“Heavenly nose. Intense, complex and creamy on the palate. Very well integrated alcohol. Wow, a real highlight of the Hearts collection. Only the sporty issue price dampens the euphoria somewhat.”
