    A dram that appears simple but is capable of hiding a lot of complexity. Didn't find that much balance, with the wood definitely being the upfront flavor - and sometimes hiding the other good stuff. This doesn't convince me and needs a re-taste, maybe with water.
    Nose has definitely been the best part of my dram, it kept on giving and had, instead, a very good balance.

      Sweet & dark as I'm accustomed to sherried whiskies: sweet raisins, wine, vanilla (that's an extra!), hints of almond. Slightly foggy, well balanced with the sweetness and the woodiness. Some "cappuccino". And at my last sip, some clear floral notes; well hidden in this vineyard!

      Some sugary/mou sweetness on the arrival, then mostly... wood. Hints of wine, almonds, nuts. Kind of tasty but isn't this too much wood?

      Long and very woody, with the wine omnipresent. Some dark chocolate, nuts, and a lot of dark coffee in the end - and this is the only note that's tête à tête with the wood. Not a very pleasant finish for me, but surely not that bad.

    Too much butterscotch for my taste
    • Nose
      84 84
      Toffee, butterscotch, vanilla, leather, nutty
    • Taste
      82 82
      Punchy, oily, good sweetness, nutty, more leather
      With water: more citrusy
    • Finish

      Long, warm

    • Nose
      82 82
      alcoholic;
      heather, dry wheat; some water opens the nose, but not very comlex.
    • Taste
      83 83
      very strong; do not save by adding water!
      Fresh grass, impetuous;
      with some water, it is a kind of bitter. not very tasty
    • Finish
      82 82
      dry, no special finish; medium long
