2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.06 points

  1. Vallado scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    This whisky has its own, very exciting character. Even if he lacks some complexity for a top rating - what he shows he does really well!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Imitation leather, sawdust, joinery, cigar box, dry-spicy, over time cherries, plum jam
    • Taste
      87 87
      Thinner texture than expected, peppery tingle on the tongue, spicy-fruity sherry that quickly becomes sweet, plum compote
    • Finish
      88 88
      initially rather dry, sweeter towards the end with oak spice and dominant sherry tones. This spicy-fruity-sweet composition runs through the entire tasting and will take no end in the long finish.
