  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Iodine, Christmas pudding, date paste, sweet dried dates, dried prunes, a little bit cardboardy. A classic sherry bomb with almost no flaws.
    • Taste
      Dried oak, a bit woody, prunes, hawthorn, camphor, watermelons.
    • Finish
      Short, dried dates, sherry.

  2. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The cask overwhelms things slightly.
    • Nose
      Dense. Tobacco leaf, apple bowl/dried apple, stewed fruit, rum and raisin, cold tea.
    • Taste
      Chewy, concentrated and sweet, (cream sherry?). Treacle. Big sherry influence and firm grip.
    • Finish
      Dry bracken.
