    Definitely needs time in the glass and more like a glass to judge

      Sherry .... dark chocolate ... spice ... a fresh one with some caramel ... maybe blackberries and other dark fruits
    • Taste
      89 89
      Seasoning ... sherry ... strong .... now comes oak ... in the end, a sweetness concludes
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium ... getting dry

  9. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    an absolutely beautiful thing, i love those, the influence of the wood / oak is hard on the border anymore it probably should not be for me
    • Nose
      Nice sherry, sweet is more, a bit oak, slightly coffee
    • Taste
      silky and oily on the palate
      lovely sherry, good oak, dark chocolate, roasted aromas - espresso
    • Finish
      long, very spicy, bitter, wood / oak (on the border)
