    Nose: a modern, rounded and thick nose. Dense fruitcake, dried figs, plenty of raisins and rich toffee. Apfelstrudel with hints of vanilla. Some brighter notes of orange peel and red berry jam. Earthy spice underneath, mainly cinnamon and nutmeg. Mouth: quite jammy although there are strong spicy notes too. Baked pears, oranges, blackcurrant. Toasted walnuts, Heering cherry, bitter almonds. Cinnamon and hints of coffee. Peppered lemon in the end. Finish: long, rich, on dried fruits, chocolate and peppery oak.

    A modern, rich and vibrant sherry profile. The active oak is balanced by enough juicy fruits. Quite a benchmark in this genre I would say, overtaking recent GlenDronach in my book. Let’s just hope they make consistent follow-up batches. A tad expensive, but recommended nonetheless.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    modern sticky sherry profile - no Saftmalt but somehow boring and for its price too tasty - but comes closer to the old Glendronach Revival Style for me as the current of Rachel
    • Nose
      86 86
      dried figs, orange, citrus zests, grapefruit peel, sweet, apricot, bitter almond
    • Taste
      86 86
      slightly dry, oily, syrupy - needs a small drop of water to open - dried dates and figs, plum jam, orange, apricot, chocolate, some leather, fine oak tones
    • Finish
      84 84
      warm and sweet - but even after a big long chewed gulp not really medium long

  4. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    a terrific sherry standard. The favor of the early batch? I hope later bottlings can keep this level.
    • Nose
      ostensibly beautiful, tart fruit notes, blood orange, cherry, chocolate, raisins and new wooden furniture. Very round, nothing stands out. Great composed.
    • Taste
      very full for 43%, here too initially dark, juicy substance, nectarine, blackberry. Then dark chocolate with cherry filling, Jaffa Cake cherry. spicy oak notes. Again, very round and velvety soft.
    • Finish
      long, raisins, cherries and leather.

    Classic sherry tamdhu of the best kind, the price is a little too high
    • Nose
      88 88
      Clear sherry, you literally feel in a good bodega in Jerez,
    • Taste
      87 87
      The expectations of the nose are not met one hundred percent, but still this is a wonderful classic Tamdhu
    • Finish
      86 86
      The aftertaste could be a little longer, but the sherry notes are still present here too

    A tad on the expensive side, this is nonetheless one of your better options this category.
    • Nose
      Where other modern sherry whiskies can sometimes feel immature, that's not the case at all here. It's thick and packed with sultanas, butterscotch, toffee, orange zest and raspberry jam. Soft spices like cinnamon and a coffee-like influence add some welcome layers of complexity.
    • Taste
      Hints of cappuccino and gentle notes of pepper and nutmeg. Oily and mouthcoating with Maraschino cherries, peanut skins, sweet oranges and notes of cassis. Really enjoyable.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, dried fruits and some charred oak.
