  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Actually I expected more of this one. It's okay, but with being bottled on a higher Abv, with influences of both bourbon- and sherry casks, I would expect much more flavours and depth.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fruity aroma's, some prunes and raisins, but also some citrus. Pretty light 'nose', you really have to concentrate to get some things through.
    • Taste
      Smooth, sweet, honey, a bit drying mouthfeel. Somehow it feels a little bit pale. Oranges, caramel, peach.
    • Finish
      A little more pungent now, somewhat bitter finish, sweet too, honey, oranges. Middle long finish.
