  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.

  3. The_Independent scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Spicy, intense sherry whisky characterized by strong herbal notes, some leather, chocolate and a little dash of espresso. Excellent value for money.

    2018.08.03 - For me it was much more like a very well aged, sherried 18 year old. It is way over its league, in terms of aging. Screams quality modern sherry casks.
    • Nose
      Very thick, dense nose. High cocoa chocolate, dark chocolate covered ripe fruits. Chocolate plum &cherry. Christmas cake. A true winter dram! Plum marmalade, prune, fresh white bread
    • Taste
      Very chocolaty, dusty dark fruits, stewed plum finish, luscious ,juicy, sweet ripe fruit & bitter chocolate

    Surprisingly good! I like the bold sherry flavors.
    The finish is a bit short and the alcohol edge a bit sharp, but overall very good.
