5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.75 points

  1. El Bastardo scored this whisky 60 points Member Senior

    Not as "great" as pure sherry whiskys that have spent all their time in sherry barrels when compared to sherry whiskys. Instead, he has his own identity that sets him apart from others who only go in one direction. Legs type "Jack of many trades".
    • Nose
      Not too intense sherry smell and very light spice.
    • Taste
      Powerful start that quickly and steadily gives way to sherry taste. A little spice is added shortly before the finish.
    • Finish
      Wort attracts. The strong impression goes away quickly, but a basic taste remains on the tongue.

    - a delicious sherry single malt
    - definitely belongs to the better 12 year olds
    Standard bottlings
    - on a level comparable to Benriach 12 J. Sherry
    Wood
    - was it always so expensive ???
    (yes it is good, yes it is delicious, but 55 € are a bit over the target ...)
    • Nose
      intense sweet sherry, dark fruits, raisins, oak, slightly sweet touch
    • Taste
      very soft fruity start, lots of fruit and sweetness, a hint of dark chocolate, aromatic pleasantly light fruit aroma
    • Finish
      medium-long, soft finish;
      medium-long spicy, slightly bitter aftertaste

  3. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Aroma:
    Fruity with sherry, slightly spicy, touches of oak, vanilla and orange.

    Taste:
    Slightly tingling and spicy, tart and sweet, a lot of sherry, full body due to the 46%, comes across well.

    Departure:
    Slightly spicy, tart-sweet with oak notes, soft with sherry and light malt note, sweet and long-lasting.
