  1. Vallado scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    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.

    Distinct coffee-milk note.
    • Nose
      Strongly spicy with oak, caramel, latte macchiato, sherry, roasted nuts
    • Taste
      Sweet and dry with sherry and spices, oak
    • Finish
      Long with oak and spice
