  1. PaulDvorak scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Balanced, even, with the aroma of banana pudding, sherry freshness, dried apricots, grapes, white currants and caramel, sweet-sour taste with tones of red apples, sour berry jam, wet pieces of wood and dried fruit, pepper-malt finish with a slight bitterness, tones of chocolate , wood and sherry.
    Very tasty, fresh and sherry. The balance is high, it develops evenly and confidently in the glass. Nothing is lost from time to time.

    RATING: 86pts - [n21, t21, f22, b22] → | 86-89: Remarkable |

    Thin, fruitiness as diluted, gammelig - almost a chewy prickling on the tongue - like foul fruit. Bitter notes. almost not drinkable

  9. lys1 scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Not very engaging 15 year old. Slightly sweeter than the 21-year-old, but lacks darker sherry tones.
