  1. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Aroma:
    very sweet, syrupy, brown sugar, slightly sulphurised raisins, dry fruits, caramel, figs.
    Taste:
    again very sweet, raisins, creme brulee, creamy, light spice, nuts, dried fruit.
    finish:
    very sweet, raisins, dried fruit.
    Conclusion:
    Very sweet, intensely charged malt with strong PX influence.
    Pretty monotonous and less complex, cardboard-sweet, easy to drink ...

    It's not whisky, it's a whisky product. There is nothing left of the base, everything is packed with sticky sherry.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Dusty, earthy, seafood in soy sauce, coffee, dried mushrooms, julienne, sprouted tree, apiary, heap of sticky sherry, dried fruits, cognac notes, fried sugar, raspberries, molasses.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Heresy, fruit, cognac, sweet to sticky, pectus.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Bitter, sweet sherry, dried fruit, pectusin, chocolate, short.

    Sweet nose. Initial sweetness from the Pedro Ximenez second cask makes way for notes from the original bourbon cask. A sherry finish done well.

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose and body are pretty nice in balance, but finish cannot meet, too short and too less flavours left. Sherry influences are present but pretty modest.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Fruity, red fruits, prunes, some chocolate, raisins, orange zest, and suddenly very strong some cane sugar syrup.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Some pepper, sweet, chocolate, then prunes, caramel. Pretty full taste, raisins as well.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Pretty much pepper now and intense, sweet and some red fruits. Raisins. The finish dies out pretty quick actually.

  8. Pyromann scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Interestingly. It nicely combines sherry with sharpness and woodiness. When I wonder if there would be too much sherry in a few glasses :) Strong, memorable whisky, I could imagine the whole bottle.
    • Nose
      Sherry, nuts, sweet, denser - but not too much, malt
    • Taste
      Sweeter, sweetness, sherry impression here is very distinctive. After 2 seconds it will sharpen and move towards some woody species
    • Finish
      Longer, sweet
