  2. Myke scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Wow, a sweet sherry with a rum note and dried red fruits. A typical Oloroso aroma comes through later; I find the 5 year old to be good with a good PLV.

      clear sherry note. Some spices. Slight honey notes. Dark red fruits towards dried plums and raisins. Sweetness not so pronounced, some rum sweetness (grapes, in rum), some marzipan. I don't have any floral things in my nose, but over time a sweetie gets through more. Reminds of the Kilchoman Loch Gorm 2017, but without smoke. Interesting! Alcohol note is not intrusive. In the background there is a very slightly acidic note, possibly lime acid (lime zest) that occurs very late. There is still some heather hidden there, but it will become less and less over time. I find it relatively complex in the nose.

      90 90
      first soft, then a wort builds up, at the same time somewhat velvety and oily-creamy. Something slightly nutty, and sweetness of marzipan. Warming. Rum notes, raisins and plums are dominant, with some milk chocolate.
    • Finish
      83 83
      medium length finish. Dry sherry note (Oloroso) with very light spice. Getting dry. The nutty aroma recedes somewhat. Something toasted: toasted Brazil nuts, toasted almonds? Exciting.

  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 72 points Expert Senior

    This whisky starts with quite pleasant nose, although very young but vivid and with beautifully integrated sherriness. Even notable fusel oil aromas play very well with other nose components. However, the palate is a complete disappointment: it’s unbalanced, bitter and very spirituous. The finish is also rather unpleasant. So I wouldn’t buy this whisky even for the half of its price.
    • Nose
      Very young with notable sherry notes - sultanas and dried apricots, strong maltiness, grassy notes, stewed vegetables, earth and dust on the background
    • Taste
      Medium-sweet, spirituous, solvent, strong bitterness, malty, woody with strong tannins, porridge note
    • Finish
      Dry, medium-long, bitter, somewhat nutty, malty
