  1. Gloin scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    The smell is lovely and delivers everything you could want from a sherry whisky: lots of red fruits. Only a little more seasoning at an age of 18 would be desirable.
    Surprisingly little fruit follows in the mouth. The oak suddenly dominates.
    Unfortunately, the exit is a bit banal.

    The smell was promising, but the taste and finish fail to live up to that promise. Pity
    • Nose
      Very mild, sweetish, sherry, plums, cherries, strawberries, some vanilla behind them, after a while citrus notes in the background
    • Taste
      Gentle entry, somewhat thin, watery body, some spiciness, delicate bitterness, less sweet than the nose suggested, the fruity note takes a back seat to the oak
    • Finish
      Classic, some oak, malt, some bitterness lingers on the palate.
