  2. 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.

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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

  7. DarrenHJA 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. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    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.

  9. 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
