    N- Rich dark honey and berries jam, scents of youthful oak are felt in non offensive way. Thick cut of sour dough brown loaf toast, studded with dark raisin and dried maraschino for bites of sweetness. Humid scents in the dunnage, dark roasted malt ale. Drifts of marzipan with nutty peat. (94/23)

  2. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Leaves a bit zwiegespalten. On the one hand, the sherry cask is so dominant that one does not notice as much of the distillery character as it might be desirable. On the other hand, this is a nice young sherry cask whisky that does a good deal of good and is likely to be a malt that should make a whole bottle of fun in the glass - if you should be prepared to jump on the otherwise apparent with young Springbanks, refrain from mineral notes.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Full sherry program: sweet red grapes, raisins, leather, tobacco. Sweetish at first, pepper and nutmeg come after a while. Nougat chocolate and marzipan bread. Cinnamon. The classic mineral note is only slightly noticeable in the background, the sherry barrel is already very clear about it.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full and creamy with raisins, dried figs, strawberry jam and couverture. Slightly tingling, mineral. The sherry barrel is also dominating on the tongue, the taste is sweet and fruity with only a little spicy portions. Every now and then chili flits through, with time it gets salty on the tongue,
      dry and menthol-fresh.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, dry and spicy at the back, with the sweet raisins and grapes still making their rounds.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    High-quality dry sherry whisky, not very deep and complex, rather such, light, invigorating, unobtrusive, but very pleasant and sound.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, old solid furniture, earthy notes, dirty prunes, animal fat, deep-frying oil, wool, dried mushrooms, leavened must, burnt jam.
    • Taste
      Saturated, dense, oak, old furniture, furniture lacquer, old leather goods, crackers, kvass, caramel, earthy notes, raisins, prunes
    • Finish
      Soft, refreshing, cola, caramel, coffee, leather goods, furniture lacquer, puer, lemon peel, ginger, metallic acidity.

  4. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    What you would expect, a well-composed young sherry malt
    • Nose
      A classic Sherrynase, sweet, raisins, dark fruits, some spice from the wood, it smells like a PX-barrel, a certain youth swims with it, but it is well covered by the barrel influence, always comes through, if you go a little deeper clear, with time it becomes spicy, wet tobacco, a hint of smoke and dark chocolate, after the first sip of chocolaty, short vegetables, towards celery
    • Taste
      creamy, raisin compote, sweet, malty, a touch of liquorice, spicy, pepper, dark chocolate, espresso, tobacco, good to drink, definitely not need water
    • Finish
      salty, slightly herbaceous, nuts are added, yes salted nuts, with a breeze raisin concentrate, very slightly ashy, like a cold shisha

      really nice! . Lots of Sherry in the nose. Dried fruits, nuts and hints of chocolate. At the same time it remains fresh. With water; more real springbank. The smell of the sea through the sherry.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Typical for good sherry casks. It takes water well. More cooked fruit comes along with the typical sherry taste. It still has a remarkable freshness, which i like a lot
    • Finish
      89 89
      Quite long and balanced.

    Genting actually has such a fresh high-quality sherry bucket? As far as this cup is concerned, it performed well.
    • Nose
      90 90
      The unbrewed milk powder is accompanied by some cold fermentation, cool rosin, mint, turpentine, high-fat whipped cream, in addition to rosemary and sea salt, mint, wheat and other refreshing feelings. After the cup woke up, the refreshing feeling slowly dissipated, exuding the smell of burning twigs and tar fleshy. 90
    • Taste
      89 89
      It has a strong sense of fat, oily, fresh and salty like shredded squid. In addition, there are a little burnt wood chips and a lot of sea salt dark chocolate, coffee, artificial milk flakes, and a touch of honey sweetness. In addition, there is also a slight wheat rancid taste. The wine has high oil content and fullness. If the flavor ignores the slightly over-line sea salt, it can be regarded as balanced and palatable. While the alcohol irritation is extremely low, the taste of the sea salt honey chocolate is excellently presented and conveyed. 89
    • Finish
      88 88
      It leaves with chili, tannin, mint, sesame pepper, sea salt, a little glutinous feeling, in addition to the milky aftertaste of cold milk, no bitter bottom, and a bit more spicy end rhyme. 88
