  2. Lafroy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Nose gives the sense of sweetness and wood
      varnish at the same time, strongly sherry influenced, fingernail polish, prunes,
      malted barley, campfire smoke, pepper over a grill and turkey on fire, burned oak,
      spruce, salt, notes of sea and a little bit of dryness.
    • Taste
      It most of all starts with sweetness, then
      it becomes hot, delicate and sweet again, then lightly bitter. Definitely a
      good sherry cask from HP. If it was a pure cask strength I would be fully
      satisfied.
    • Finish
      Very long, rather soft and sweet with
      dried fruits and strong prunes.
