  2. Missalotta scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    I would definitely buy again, a real sniff whisky.
    • Nose
      Caramel, a touch of vanilla, raisins, sweet sherry, fantastic nose.
    • Taste
      typical sherry taste, was almost too long in the sherry barrel, he goes easily into woody or dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Finish: medium, would have a more dominant of the many sherry. longer departure expected. He tolerates little or no water, he is then very neutral almost watery.

  3. HunterRomario scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    The strength of these whiskys is greatly drinkable, even without dilution, the viper is not open and strong in the keg force, so I would not personally recommend thinning. Together with GlenDronach 1989 20y Pedro Ximenez Sherry Puncheon, this is the best sherry style I've ever tasted.
    • Nose
      Aroma beautifully sweetish. Molasses, caramel, chocolate, a little bit of masox and spice, the impression of coffee tones, a lot of sweet sherry. Fantastic viper. (93 b)
    • Taste
      On the tongue of a slightly sweetish sherry, but it is still in dry style. By adding water the flavor is palatable, but other taste impressions are thin. I have tried either to avoid or to do very slightly. (88 b)
