  1. tribe scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The smell gives ed directly chin water. Thick noble sherry note with coffee dark fruits and massive in the taste. There is also red fruit and some citrus notes here. Candied sugar and blood orange In the taste and it continues. the barrel worked hard. The taste of old wood comes through and tastes much older than it is. The finish is fruity spicy and slightly tart. Beautiful painter ..

    Ok after more than half a year, the even better. Tastes of coke with cinnamon and tobacco .. In addition, juicy orange possibly blood orange if that makes a difference. There is also some traffic jam ... Komplexxx. Must increase the points. Very awesome

    By adding water the orange and the tobacco comes out more and it gets sweeter with candied sugar. He can be enjoyed with or without water, he loses nothing but only changes.

    ????: dark gold, dark ex-oloroso
    ????: intense oloroso, strong ABV reception! quite smooth, a bit moist moss, very pleasant 1st fill although without deeper climates, you can feel the alcohol delicately,
    ????: oily, delicate, slightly alcoholic, smooth, sweet, very drinkable! Although not so long on the tongue as it might seem, it quickly goes into the finish,
    ????: but the finish is already underway, sweet, warming up,
    *
    There is no WOW, like a nice intense 1st fill oloroso but there are some shortcomings: a bit of alcohol and without much depth. Very drinkable but a bit there is nothing to think about as you would like to and expected ...
