  2. maltaholic scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Very nice color.
    Auburn.

    Fruity, intense sherry.

    In the mouth, however, he lets up.
    Blurs something.
    Pretty young, alcoholic.

    You do not have to have that ...

  4. HunterRomario scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Alcohol: 43%
    Aroma: Enough sherry, sweet fruity (dates, figs), butter biscuits club, sweeter spices. (86 b)
    Taste: Spicy, a little sweeter at first, but then the sweetness fades and dries. The reverberation is then interestingly peppery. (84 b)
    Points: 85/100
    Summary: A solid affair at a reasonable price in Travel Free.

  9. Falnor scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    An enjoyable dram with nothing bad, but also a little save to become something good.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Just baked cookies right out the oven. Applepie with some cinnamon and honey. Cake and cream with some milk chocolate sauce on it.
    • Taste
      80 80
      Lots of caramel, toffee and lots of citrus fruit. Mostly oranges. Quite easy and light sherried dram.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Some spices, oak and again caramel. Lemon and slightly nutty finish.

  10. Dris scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The spirit itself seem to be youngish, with some added deeper notes coming from the mature oloroso sherry coming from wet casks.
