  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Just a nice fruity whisky, no surprises, not too strong nor too soft, not very complex but enough taste to enjoy this one without paying too much attention.

      Still a little tingling mouthfeel, fruity with some bitter notes underneath, grapefruits. Peach, some red fruits as well.

    Disappointing for the price. Subtle Sherry, more focused on spices and caramel.

      Long and spicy. Interesting but shy Sherry feedback.

    Nice sweet sherry on the nose but the taste is marred by heavy sulphur (no change since I opened this bottle six months ago).

    1 year later (bottle half empty): the "off tastes" are less aggressive but there is still a funky side to it - reminds me of the Springbank 15 I recently tasted. On the plus side, the whisky is full-bodied and smooth.
