    Sherry bomb in your face for first impression.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Raisins, pickled pear and dried fish.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet, medium complexity that dwindles and dies towards that short finishing. Ginger, honey and hay notes.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Dies quickly, very short ending. Nothing to finish on top of the heavy blast start.

    Very sweet, intensely charged malt.
    Tasty if you feel like strong PX influence.

    Although he can not score with great depth or maturity, I do not expect that from NAS and the price.
    • Nose
      very sweet, syrupy, brown sugar, dry fruits, caramel, leather, figs.
    • Taste
      Very sweet again, raisins, marzipan, creme brulee, light spice, nuts, dried fruits.
    • Finish
      Seasoning and nuttiness become more intensive on the finish and slowly fade away with the dried fruit.

  6. Kaleva scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Quite pleasant whisky but mainly because of PX finish. This single malt is quite monotone and lacks any complexity, however showing rather good balance. Sherry hides this whisky's youth but after a while you can easily feel it. In any case might be quite a good option just to drink
    • Nose
      Sweet, sherry, dried fruits, caramel, marmalade, syrup, orange zest, water releases malty and sulfur notes
    • Taste
      Sweet, peppery, prunes, malt, butter cookies, pear notes
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet, drying, dried fruits, malt

    Price-quality a really nice dram, really nice for a sherrybomb lover like myself. One of the best drams I had so far in this price range !
    • Nose
      86 86
      Starts with a lot of dried fruit: raisins, dried figs ... some strawberry compote and a hint of gingerbread
    • Taste
      88 88
      Starts a bit sour but right after that an explosion of red fruits kicks in: strawberry, red berries, in comination with the first sour start even some juniper. Again a quite dominant taste of raisins and gingerbread
    • Finish
      87 87
      The red fruit explosion fades out and gets replaced by milk chocolate and a more nutty finish ... reminds me of the Ritter sport bars with hazelnuts.

    Blind test.
    Aroma: A very nice scent, very well covered, I think in red wine. The aroma is full, rich, warm and wine-like, even with the touch of sweet peat. The longer I play with the glass, the smell I like more. There are also caraway and aniseed, sweet windyness, light and sweet gumness, a bit like the Ballechin (The Discovery Series). Gourmet juicyness adds another dimension, great, layered scent. (90 b)
    Taste: Beautifully juicy, fruityly acidic, aniseed, with caraway and raisins, sweet guminess, sunburned suds and a nice sherry smud. (88 b)
    Points: 89
    Summary: This whisky has surprised me, has a lot to offer. In the blind test, the brain threads were well ventilated, the Ballechin tip was pretty much beside me, but it was quite similar to me.
