  1. 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.
    • Taste
      88 88
      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.

  3. Glenrod scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Despite the brutally high ABV a really tasty substance. In a blind taste, I would estimate it to be 15-18 years old.
    Is simply round, also tolerates water well.
    It's a pity, I didn't buy it at the time, so I have to be careful with one bottle.

    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.

      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.

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

    He gets much better with a lot of water.

  12. RichardMayston scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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.

  14. André scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A great drink as I like to see them. quite high in the alcohol and that you notice at the first glass actually not immediately, but in the second one. Incidentally, certainly no drink to start the lineup .......
