  1. Ostap scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    It's not whisky, it's a whisky product. There is nothing left of the base, everything is packed with sticky sherry.

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

  3. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    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 ...

  4. ConvalRen scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.

  8. Vinyllebt scored this whisky 78 points Expert Junior

    Artificial peach aroma on the nose, sweet.
    Mainly celery (?) And extremely sweet cough syrup on the palate.
    Far from being pleasant, maybe you can get used to it.
