  1. Sonett scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This one would have been very interesting as a cask. Now at 40% it does not contain any extraordinary nose or taste and with water it falls flat to the ground
    • Nose
      Sherry, Raisins, Plums and Oak
    • Taste
      Wine comes back in the taste wit Sherry, raisins, figs and a very strong taste of oak
    • Finish
      Medium long without surprises, just fading away

  4. pere scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Quite intense, sherry, fruity sweetness, a bit of wood, sweetish spices, beeswax, sugar coating.
    • Taste
      Smooth, a bit of flowers, milk coffee, a bit of sherry sweetness, just a hint of wood, fruity, delicious although much mellower than the nose.
    • Finish
      Fruity, flowers, sweetish, a bit of beeswax, quite fresh, a bit of spiciness, a hint of wood.
