      Sweet. Chocolate, fruity, long

  3. marmeladow scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A whisky for lovers of port wine: inspiring, intense and complex if you take your time and add a few drops of water.
    "This is a form of cask finishing that has progressed from experimentation to certainty." (Murray-Bible 2019)
    • Nose
      Wonderful reddish color, medium-strength legs.
      The port wine dominates the nose, spicy and fruity-sweet, but with less sweetness than Lasanta or other sherry W., dark fruits, red grapes
    • Taste
      powerful start, spicy, warming, slightly dry,
      Orange / tangerine, dark fruits, nuts and lots of dark chocolate. Slightly creamy, oily. Slight oak flavor and bitterness, but very pleasantly and complexly integrated
    • Finish
      Chocolate, dark fruits and nuts dominate, alongside clear oak and red wine tones, but all of this cannot completely mask a certain fruity sweetness. The finish is still powerful and warm and lasts for a medium length. What remains is a clear chocolate taste

    • Nose

    • Finish
      80 80
      Smooth finish, quite long and tinge on the tongue, leaving on tobacco
