  1. tangtang scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    beautiful sherry malt which is more on the spicy woody side from the profile and you can tell the age. Nice profile
    • Nose
      a lot of old wood, furniture polish, dark dried fruits, slightly spicy, old leather, herbs, some citrus fruits in the background, nice and pleasant and round, chocolate comes in brief, then the oak notes dominate
    • Taste
      spicy oak notes combined with intense sherry aromas, old wood, dried fruits, leather, plums, raisins, slightly sour at the end
    • Finish
      nice intense old sherry notes, some chocolate, leather, old wood, becoming slightly dry. Quite a long time

  2. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    An ideal embodiment of an intense, felt 'old' sherry influence. Still not too violent. Still has a nice balance. Simply delicious through and through. Very expensive but tasty.

      Hammer! Lots of oranges, dry raisins, tart chocolate, wonderful spices, dried orange peel, generally dried fruits and spicy 'old' sherry. With some red jam, vanilla and caramel.

      A wonderful harmony of intense fruits and pleasantly tart-spicy notes from the barrel, whereby the fruits / dried fruits usually predominate.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Again juicy oranges, as well as dried orange slices. Generally dried fruits, raisins, slightly tart chocolate (a lot of it), juicy red fruits, some jam and much spicier 'old' sherry.
    • Finish

      First the dried fruits show presence again, then the whole thing flows smoothly into beautiful spicy notes, a lot of tart chocolate and sweet-spicy wood. Dry Christmas spices stay on the tongue for a long time.
