  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Finely balanced sherry whisky. Easy to drink.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Light liquorice, anise, orange, vanilla, sweetness / honey, spices, a little cautious.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Fruity after orange, cocoa and chocolate, then the oak seasoning comes and gives a lighter bitterness. Becoming drying.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length and dry.

    Unhurried, easy to drink, pleasing, easy to drink. Something sherry, not too much, so that the cinnamon Brennereicharakter still comes through well. In the taste and finish then milk with cinnamon. Delicious!
    Nothing super special, but round and well done. You can calmly put it in the bar.

    This baby has very good nose. It is a proper sherry matured whisky. A bit thin at 43% ABV. The aftertaste is a bit short and simple. Very good value for money.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Lot of sawdust at the beginning, then dark fruits, rum-soaked raisins, dried cherries. Then a little musky, and is quite sweet.
    • Taste
      82 82
      The mouthfeel is a bit thin. Plenty of brown sugar, milk chocolate and nuttiness. Pleasant oak flavour. Doesn't taste young.
    • Finish
      81 81
      The sherry wood flavour went away quite fast, leaving alone some bitterness, so the afternoon seems a bit simple and one dimensional.

    not a sherry bomb, by any stretch....but one of the most luxurious distillates on the market. nothing detracts from the velvety mouthfeel of cooked fruit and malt.medium long finish makes this one of my all-time favorite drams
