Whisky Reviews for The Story of the Spaniard Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

  1. Rosencrantz scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Soft and persuasive, drinkable without being a pleaser, with those light strident notes of wine that give it three-dimensionality.
    Even those who don't like sherried whiskies may like it!
    • Nose
      87 87
      Sherry in profusion on the nose, as expected, very hot and with beautiful tannins present. Trifle, lemon zest, ripe apple, nutmeg and a freshly cut wooden background. It reminds of Sunday pastries brought on a wooden log as a tray.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The mouth is very vinous, almost like Marsala, and flows like velvet in the mouth (in this sense, perfect gradation). A pleasantly spiced tip evokes mulled wine, with an orange slice and floating pieces of red apple. Still wood on the background. It is definitely not the "usual" sherried.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is medium-long, very dry, with spices, red wine and lots of warmth.
