  1. dram_on scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Color: 1.7Legs: damn fine if you don’t mind my sayingNose: dates, dried cranberries, almonds, almost rotten strawberries, very light caramel, some smoke, fake antique leather couch, smells older than 4yo, abv doesn’t hit hardPalate: medium mouthfeel, cough syrup, some heat, smoke is there again almost peaty (< 5ppm), rotten strawberries is there too, earthy cashews, black tea hit to the faceFinish: longest one tonight, black tea note is really strong, almost no red fruit notes left, cough syrupBalance: this one feels a little disjointed possibly due to accelerated maturation from a hotter and more humid climate, smoke and black tea notes are quite prominentComment: I’d say this is an earthy black tea bomb with little or no sherry notes, but I expect this to change a bit as it opens up.

    Updated comment: it's been over half a year since I've opened this bottle up, and my fill level is about 3/5th now ... it's gotten a lot better with more typical sherry notes appearing and the black tea notes disappearing, bumping up from a 79 to an 81.
