  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Classic sherry board!
    • Nose
      85 85
      Intense, fully loaded sherry nose. Sticky sweet raisins. A decent portion of tart chocolate, leather and beeswax candle.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Strong start. Very creamy. Classic sherry bomb. Dark as the night. Raisins, dark chocolate, leather, some pipe tobacco. Oak on the palate.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Warming and soft. Less dry than expected.

    Tried this in the distillery before buying it. With hindsight, I wish I'd bought more than one. It's dark colour reflects the stoned fruit flavour. Very smooth. One of my favorites now.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Very worthy sherry whisky, a very wide palette of derivatives, depth, complexity, no sense of steroid pumping young whisky and the softness is amazing for 60%.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, old furniture, noble wood, furniture lacquer, dry medicinal herbs, furniture polish, burnt rusks, coffee, dark chocolate, old leather goods, raisins, foliage, burnt jam, shortbread.
    • Taste
      Rich, dense, oak, furniture lacquer, tobacco, prunes, raisins, sweet pastry notes, burnt rusks, burnt jam, pu er, dry herbs, eucalyptus.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, the continuation of taste, coffee, dark chocolate, sour prunes, a bit of oak, camphor, eucalyptus.

  5. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nose: dried fruits, leather, oak, spices, raisin and berries. Mouth: sweet, chocolate, oak, furniture polish, dried fruits. Finish: long, spices, fruits, oak, furniture polish. It’s a smooth, tasty and easy drinkable whisky.

    This is a malt to get out of whisky drinking.
    • Nose
      Disappointing.
    • Taste
      Bitter. A lot of oak.
      More bitterness. Even more oak.
    • Finish
      Bitterness and oak.
      But the finish last for hours, unfortunately.
