  1. hs305 scored this whisky 66 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2019] I do not buy sherry matured whisky bottles anymore unless I tried a sample first (because I had too many sulphur-spoiled releases)...

    ...like this bottling straight outta hell. This is sulphur (and phosphor) in abundance which buries all other flavours. I emptied this sample into the toilet, to be honest.
    • Nose
      The colour is very pale (for a sherry maturation) at pale straw and the nose offers the devil's ingredients in abundance. This is a mixture of matchbox ignition area with burnt fireworks and gunpowder. If you are a firebug you will like it, most probably - but I am not a pyromaniac, sorry.
    • Taste
      This tastes as if I watered several boxes of matches until they dissolved completely - just disgusting, nothing else!
    • Finish
      Should I really state that the finish is very long? Because of ... guess what?
