  1. Samate scored this whisky 96 points Expert Junior

    Nose: complex, sherry notes with some cinnamon, a bit of peaches and apricots.
    Taste: nice and rounded, very fruity (orange, red apples, dates), sherry, marzipan, a little cocoa, cinnamon and other spices.
    Finish: long, very long... strong and complex, wonderfully mouth-filling; pepper, oak, coffee, then sweet plums and raisins, some spices.

    • Nose
      Deeper than 20+ Donna, the black fruit dried fruit, salted fruit, syrup, oloroso, dried tangerine peel, plum, honey, woven with a little sulphur, squid, fennel, pepper, Allspice, damp old oak with plum fruit, powdered baked nuts, yellow curry powder?

      Still familiar formula, or familiar taste, oloroso characteristics are not too prominent, the salt and sulfur that play the role of the scent and the thick dried fruit and oak taste complement each other, the Dolly Shirley barrel has a special feature is high Very dry woody smells are rare in the year, which is quite commendable.
    • Taste
      Small sweet water, Shirley soup, oak slag, slightly tannins with rubber, melon scoop, kumquat lemon tea, black chocolate, coffee, the tail has a comfortable slightly sour taste.

      Sophisticated balance, enter the hall, get the kitchen.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting, aromatic woody, dark fruit, black and oily.

      Time gave everything and took away some.
