    • Nose
      84 84
      The influence of the oloroso barrels is clearly perceptible. The nose is slightly vinous, the tannins of the barrel bring a woody note to this whisky. A little too much perhaps because the aromas of red fruits remain too subtle and should have been highlighted.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Do not expect a "sherry bomb" as the mouth lacks explosiveness. The attack is smooth, with notes of honey, quince paste. The whisky reveals a little more aftertaste, with more fruity flavors (fruit cake).
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is surprisingly not so short and emphasizes the fresh side of the red fruits with very pleasant acidity (wild strawberries, raspberries, currants). The best aspect of this whisky.

    Delicious sherry malt. Not very intense, but nice and tasty. Needs time in the glass. Although the sherry flavors are not very intense, they cover the distiller's character too much.
    Hardly noticeable herbs and spices.
    Otherwise good schnapps.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Pleasant start in the nose, but takes some time to develop, then slightly fruity after orange peel, red apples, plum must, but does not work as intensely as expected. In addition a light wood note, honey sweetness with a little caramel and marzipan. Herbs only get through very sparingly.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Soft, fresh beginning, the fruits appear a bit ripe, fuller. But not really intense on the palate either. In addition, there is a nice round honey sweetness with a slightly sour touch of raspberries, currants, only subtly spicy,
    • Finish
      83 83
      medium-long finish, rather fruity, sweet, slightly drier with a subtle nutty spice. Leaves a kind of mint-fresh mouthfeel.
