  2. EvilAFI scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Good sherried nose, balanced, but a bit too peppery for my liking for a sherry finish.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Red sherried fruits and spice, cream, leather
    • Taste
      83 83
      Balanced, spicy and sweet. Rich mouthfeel, red licorice, pepper, strawberry.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Pepper lingers, drying and medium in length.

    Ralfy review 773: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_2-EBIc69U (85/100).

    "Here's what you need to do. Simple solution, at least a teaspoon full of water. ... There's no point of struggling on with neat whisky when it's little bit hot and a little bit fierce."

  9. schengel10 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    One to my taste. It's a lot different than the Sherry Wood 2015, but I think it's the same level.
    A delicious, good Sherry Cask Malt!
    [Color] bright gold;
    • Nose
      81 81
      dark fruits (blackberries, grapes), honey, little oak;
    • Taste
      82 82
      full-bodied, fruity onset, lots of sherry, blackberries, juicy grapes, acid notes, spices, vanilla, little oak;
    • Finish
      80 80
      a long, juicy, fruity finish, lots of sherry; slightly dry off!

  10. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Guess what? It's very sherry. Red fruits but also citrus, wood, leather and rubber. Final correct although a little short.
