  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A dram that in 2 years has improved especially at the level of wood, and impregnation Sherry, a good surprise finally!
    • Nose
      vine sensation, old maderized wine, a little dust, spice, stewed fruit.
      of the nut too
    • Taste
      cherry cherry in its brandy, all in a small barrel for the return of soaked wood!
      a little leather too, the macerated grapes appear at once with the chocolate a little creamy, oily.
    • Finish
      medium to long, on sherry, candied apple, soaked grapes, and cocoa! crushed walnut sweetness and some honey.

  2. Lorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Really great. The more intense brother of X 2015! 90 points, that's exactly my case.
    • Nose
      Sweet wine. Cherries, baked apple and plum wine. Burnt sugar. Rosemary chocolate. Lightly fermented aromas, cider and fruits. Interesting, as both the tasty-sweet character, as well as the spicy-bitter alike is there. Raisins. A smell of old barrels. Time lets win the sweet and soft side. Grape juice. Hand warmth intensifies chocolate and wine-soaked leather.
    • Taste
      Sweet and full. Chocolate cherry. Pipe tobacco and plum jam. Raisins. Leather. Sugar. Incredibly sweet and juicy, yet powerful and intense. In the post-taste gum flavors come out in the back of the throat. A bit furry, the tongue remains occupied. Chocolate stays.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Sweet and overripe fruity. A touch of bitterness.

    On the nose, intense oak with dusty sherry, a little sweet spices, some old leather rubbed with encaustic, macerated fruit in return!
