  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It becomes even more complex with water, with oranges and salty caramel.

    Great barrel that does not completely cover the maritime distillery character.

    Already Sherrylastig, but very dry. For me, he does not get better with water. We were 6 people in the tasting, I was the only one who did not like this drink. Everyone else praised him. I do not know, maybe I've eaten something wrong before, drunk or whatever ... That's why my point determination

    Notes von der SMWS Website:
    "The sherry influence is unmistakable – dusky shades of toffee, brown sugar, molasses, Macaroon bars, treacle tart, prunes and Serrano ham; also hints of tree bark, tobacco leaf and attractive leather. The palate is full-on – treacle, cough medicine, dried figs and dates, Black Bun, dark chilli chocolate, PX, Fernet Branca, quince jelly, pardon peppers and a spiced oak finish. Water brings thick-cut marmalade and salted caramel to the nose; the taste now combines rich fruit cake and Twiglets; with dry ginger, liquorice and clove to finish. After 9 years in ex-bourbon oak we transferred this to a first-fill Oloroso hogshead."
