- Nice dram. The body is complex, sweet and dry at the same time which teases my senses. Long delicious finish.
Dried fig, raisin, apple, hazelnut and caramel. With water there's apple and tangerine.
Caramel, date, mocha and raisin. Water adds apple.
More nutty. Still date and raisin.
- Excellent, full sherry matured malt
(neat) some red wine, cherry, wax and leather, bananas, walnuts
(water) grapes, winy, cooked peaches, nutty
(neat) sour-sweet, lots of fruits, balanced oak, touch of saltiness
(water) old wood, old spices, mixed dried fruits, marzipan, very nice and measured taste, proper matured
Sweet and sour, long lingering finish, some salt and spices
- Nice nose, long finish but the palate is sherry overtaken with some sulphury notes, not bad but not my style of whisky. Interesting to try but I would never buy a whole bottle.
- Could have been a Mortlach if you ask me. A heavy distillate driven and extreme Oloroso matured whisky. Not for the faint-hearted, but for the lovers of some in your face, austere, bone dry yet fruity whisky. I like it!
Quite powerful and intense, almost salted, on maggi (stock) and oxtail soup. Furthermore it is super sherry matured, but bone dry Oloroso style. It has dried fruit (prune, white raisin and fig) and blood orange, rancio, balsamic vinegar and even almost a cola scent. There is also an intense woodiness and spiciness to it, on pine resin, vanilla, clove and pepper (and maybe even more). Behind all these intense aromas is a backbone of some heavy weighted malt (honeyed cereal).
Full-power sherry influenced, with this incredible rancio sourness that Oloroso can bring about, combined with balsamic vinegar. The salty / oxtail style combines very good with the dried fruit, which is more on prunes and dates now. The alcohol is intense, with quite some pepper, but it fits well in this blockbuster. It even seems if there is some wood smoke present.
Fierce, long, heavy on dried fruit, orange, rancio, pepper, some honey and hay.
- Pretty intense Oloroso Sherry- nice dram, but almost too much sherry notes
