    Nose developed wonderful but without a doubt, a dirty sherry.

      oh, a little sulphur at first but its quickly being overtaken by good sherry notes. Caramel, caramelized sugar, its creme brulee. Cigar boxes, some marzipan and a touch of dried banana.

      Oh there's the stink again, sulphury elements with plenty of rubber. Cinnamon spice and nutmeg up the palate, gentle woodiness creeping in.

      Medium with soft oak lingering and sulphur.

  8. Tauti scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nice sherry whisky that reminds me a bit of the '97 Sherry Glenrothes. I like it very much! 89 pts.
    • Nose
      Beautiful sherry nuts with a light dusty influence. Some sulfur here. Somewhat nutty like Serrano. When the second or third smell, plums and oranges are added.
    • Taste
      The plums and orange notes as well as the sulfur (which I like) increase with water. I notice chocolate and raisins here too, later also rum. Still a bit spicy ... nutmeg?
    • Finish
      Beautiful long finish. Here's the sherry saying that again. Add rum and seasoning.
