      Despite the extremely high ABV, it is also drinkable without diluting with water. Fruity, sweet sherry notes, mouth-filling and warming. In the background a light, not annoying, sulfur. A must for lovers of sherried whiskys.

  2. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This malt tolerates a good amount of water - it looks older and (who is surprised at this alcohol content) milder.

    Notes from a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Thick and quite sweet sherry nose; must ventilate, otherwise the alcohol will kill you. Light sulfur at times.

      Without water: almost brute, shows the tongue. Then the sherry aromas come through, fruit, dusty leather. Clearly more accessible with water: beautifully fruity, with an oak note that is no longer overlaid by the high alcohol content.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium to long, sweet and with subtle barrel notes.

    He gets much better with a lot of water.

  4. Ardbeggian67 scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    Even if it can be enjoyed pure, it opens up with plenty of water and gives the connoisseur "more" of everything. This sherry whisky totally picks me up personally.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Fruity, sweet and a clear but very pleasant sulfur note
    • Taste
      92 92
      Fruity, floral and sweet as the nose suggested. Creamy and very voluminous.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length, the sulfur comes back again.

    Bomb whisky! Despite the strongest cask strength - even without water - round and complete. Fruity, spicy, full of flavor! Top class!

    Absolutely excellent stuff. Incredible the colour and the flavour from just 10 yrs, the Spanish oak really shines. Awesome value for money too, I'd buy a case if I could get my hands on it. Nearest thing to it has been the Edradour Straight from the cask sherry, but honestly this is better.
