  1. DramWhisky scored this whisky 78 points Member Senior

    Balance is decent, but the finish is a little harsh. ( 19/25)

    A nice sipping whisky, not the most complex but a good sipper.
    • Nose
      Subtle sherry notes, but almost entirely a boubon cask nose.  Vanilla, Coconut, and a touch of bamboo.  The sherry notes come across as a slight raisin profile, and perhaps some cherries as well. (20/25).
    • Taste
      Buttery, very light and watery, nice brown sugar flavor, and a sweet grain profile. ( 21/25)   Drinkable but uninspiring.
    • Finish
      Subtle notes of sherry, mostly brown sugar, and spices, buttery. A bit harsh , but very simple.  ( 18/25)

  2. drkrylov scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Matured in 1st fill bourbon barrels, refill American oak casks and Spanish sherry butts. The 12 year old is married exclusively in Spanish sherry butts prior to bottling.
