  1. hs305 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2018] I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.

    This is a typical modern style sherried whisky without any characteristics to remember after it went down the throat. Easy drinkable, nothing else...
    • Nose
      84 84
      The colour is yellow gold and the nose offers a modern sherry profile that is herbal-driven but not very impressive. This is an average modern style sherry nose without flaws and highlights.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The taste is of an average modern sherry style without flaws and highlights, too. It is easy drinkable but I find nothing to remember if someone asks me about this dram.
    • Finish
      83 83
      The initial mouthfeel is neither warming nor coating and shows no distracting moments either, simply non-existent. The finish is of medium length and turns a little bitter-drying towards the end (tannins). Water is not needed as it just flattens the dram.

  2. Portfolioman scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    quite excellent whisky from the sherry barrel, unmistakably a Miltonduff (quite similar to similar old bottlings from the Cask Strength series of G & M) - in view of the price, it is an "insider tip"
    • Nose
      heavy, old sherry; Dried fruits (plums),
    • Taste
      creamy-oily, sherry, prunes, warm-dark sweetness, end with light wood note (pencil shavings)
    • Finish
      warming, sweet, slightly astringent, plums ring out

  3. Sandman scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Sherry, hint of sulfur, raisins, chocolate, orange, hazelnut, nutmeg, raspberry, cherries, coffee, dried fruit.

    • Taste

    • Finish

  5. Ostap scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is quite intense, though too straightforward. Jerez dominates all stages.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very sherry, leather furniture, furniture store, extremely fragrant, intense aroma, raisins, grapes, vanilla, a mixture of spices, floral, sweet, slips through the roman style, mint, dusty bookcase, mushroom and meat theme, black currant, lacquer and pine. A little straightforward.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Oak, spices, plum, dry sherry, varnish (stain), pine, very fresh.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Continues the taste, dry, oak and spices, sherry, stain, pine, knits.

  6. Sandman scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Elastic band, hint of sulfur, dried fruit, nuts, chocolate and a hint of forest fruits.
    • Taste
      Cherries, hazelnuts, oak, raisins, sherry, chocolate, blueberries and dried fruit
    • Finish
      Medium, hazelnut, raisins, chocolate, dried fruit, oak, cherries, blueberries, hint of raspberry and rubber band.

  7. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      87 87
      On the nose we've got orange marmalade, sticky toffee, caramel, dried Hay and a mixture of syrups. The nose is really beautiful but sadly nothing is developed into the palate and the finish.
    • Taste
      76 76
      Starting off with a sweet and peppery mouth feel that follow through the nose, however, bad sharp taste like hospital smell appears. Sanitiser and propane fluid.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Very very short finish with chocolate and a little bit of caramelised onion.

  9. maltaholic scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    He smells heavy, ripe, strong.
    Blind I would have estimated the on Ü20.
    A very pleasant sherry note.
    Fine barrel flavors.

    Soft start.
    Nobody overwhelms anyone.
    In the taste as in the nose: sherry, wood, light spice.
    Not complex, rather tasty.

    Class!
