  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Really very composed. Overall, wonderfully aromatic with sherry, nuts, dried apples, creamy pears and dried apricots. Followed by chocolate covered gingerbread, walnut ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream and caramel sauce.
      With water: sherry tonic, ground nuts, marzipan, gingerbread, raisins, dried apricots, figs and pear pears. Reminiscent of a Swiss Schlorzifladen.
    • Taste
      Pronounced sherry tonic with raisins, dried figs, almonds, tender oak, leather and fine spices. Really beautifull! Gradually, caramelized oranges follow.
      With water: sweet sherry tones, steamed tropical fruit, marzipan, gingerbread, baklava and sweet nut liqueurs.
    • Finish
      Sherry and nutty. Accompanied by raisins, oak and soft smoke.

  2. Totoro scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Full-frontal sherry, but the nose betrays its age. This actually feels younger than the last batches. It's also way more vulgar and way less "integrated" than, say, Aberlour's A'bunadh. I would rather get that instead, or the Glengoyne CS, or two bottles of the 10- or 12-year-old Tamdhu at 43%.

      Hugely yeasty and just outright smothered with sherry. A thick almondy sweetness. Christmas spices, umami, autumn leaves: you get the idea. It's nice enough, like the ten or twelve-year-olds on steroids. But then comes...
    • Taste
      80 80
      Without water; punchy, aggressive, just outright burning-the-top-of-your-tongue-hot. A no-go.

      With water: sweet sherry and sweet spirit combine into one teeth-coatingly saccharine affair. It's intense, it's nutty, it's leathery, and it's all happening right up front, without any hidden layers or depth. Good if you want a real young ex-sherry blast, or if you need something strong to still reach your numbed-down taste buds after a flight of other whiskies. But on its own, I can't imagine when I might want this.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Echoes of sweet, syrupy, nutty-earthy modern seasoning sherry, some fading heat.

  4. Joint86 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Cool side sherry.
    The balance is badly broken in favor of taste and finish, but for them he can forgive the lack of aroma
    • Nose
      88 88
      Tobacco, dried fruits, leather, light perfume
      Soft, delicate
    • Taste
      91 91
      Tight, a little knit. Wax, caramel, some dark chocolate and spices are added to dried fruits and skin
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, warm. Spices, wax, oak barrel
