  1. maltaholic scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice color.
    Thin streaks on the glass reveal young age.

    He smells fruity.
    And after beautiful oak wood.
    Even some vanilla.
    The alcohol seems well integrated.
    There is nothing stinging.
    Over time, it gets a bit spicier.

    Violent start, strong, creamy, woody.
    A good mix of sherry and wood.
    Maybe he can take a drop of water.

    Very good to drink.
    And for 50 € a bargain ...

    Enjoyed at the Scotia Spirit Scottish Tea Room in Köln.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Proper full on sherry nose.
      A little tough on the alc right away, but it either quiet down a bit after some time in the glass or my nose just got used to it.
      Raisins and fruitcake.
      Not as much "raw" wood as in many other CS sherry casks.
      A wee drop of water makes it sweeter and more approachable.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet, rich, full body. Still not up to "nuclear" bomb level.
      As with the first nosing, the first taste appears a bit tough, or maybe intense alc, but it softens along the way.
      Sweet juicy red fruit, chocolate and concentrated caramel.
      Again, very consistant with the nose regarding the wood, soft and tasty.
      It handles a few drops of water quite well, the fruits opens up and spreads out some more. Becomes a little softer and more "likeable" without losing too much power.
      A candidate for exploration.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Quite long, sweet, spicy.
      Coffee, chocolate.
      Nice.

  3. Querky scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    A very sweet sherry bomb with reasonable pricing. One thing I especially like about it is that the sherry doesn‘t overpower the single malt‘s characteristics - it doesn‘t taste like a sherry liqueur (as some sherry bombs tend to do).

    Colour: red gold
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sweet, fruity, apples, tender notes of sherry.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very sweet with red apples, full-bodied, sweet flavours of grain and of course sweet sherry.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Honey, sultanas, tender notes of grain, malty. In the end you get a mild spiciness.
