  1. dongolzo81 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Irritating is the artificially "red" color, atypical for Oloroso ...
    Otherwise the candidate can convince
    • Nose
      85 85
      Currant jelly, vanilla, rapeseed honey, caramel, fig, later a little nut, very pleasant, but no surprise
    • Taste
      83 83
      Mild and creamy, very soft, the intensity is ok for 43%, more sherry in the mouth than in the nose, bittersweet, some spice,
    • Finish
      81 81
      Decays in balance of dark chocolate, some fruit and oak, medium length with medium to low intensity
      Later red fruits remain

    Nose: redcurrant jelly and balsamic vinegar, rosemary, quinces in red wine, dried figs, star anise and toasted coconut
    Palate: raspberry coulis, doughnut peaches, plum preserve and amaretti
    Finish: spiced blood orange and grenadine with a side of dolly mixtures

    With water
    Nose: mastic and arrowroot, plastic
    Palate: creamier but also more muted, water is unnecessary
    Finish: icing sugar

  4. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I really like it, the best of the series (with Elementa and Tribute) for me
    Easy drinking with good PLV
    • Nose
      nice sherry becomes more !!, raisins, light oak becomes more, light dark caramel, polish, red berries, old wood, nutty (walnut?)
    • Taste
      full, oily and creamy on the palate
      Raisins, red berries, red Haribo bear, really great sherry, slightly spicy, sweetness comes
    • Finish
      medium to long
      warm, slightly spicy, slightly oak, good sherry, tart, espresso, dark chocolate so 70%

    More interesting and drinkable than The Elementa from the same Traveller's Exclusive line. However, it is still no miracle. Rather simpler and much more interesting in smell than in taste. An attractive drink for beginners in the world of whisky.
    (Evaluated on a sample basis.)
    • Nose
      The influence of sherry barrels is known at the first sniff and they dominate in the aroma. Lacquered furniture, cane sugar, dried strawberries or raspberries, dates and milk chocolate. Mint and rosemary flash.

      A few drops of water bring caramel and toffifee.
    • Taste
      Rather drier, a bit artificial and relatively simple taste. Jelly with blackcurrant flavor, strawberry pudding, cane sugar and mint tea.

      A few drops of water dilute the final impression. The grassy taste dominates, which is gradually replaced by the impression of bitterness of the citrus peel.
    • Finish
      Rather indistinct and only really slightly woody and herbal. At the same time, the artificial fruity taste fades. Slightly mint.

      After a few drops of water, it becomes bitter and goes significantly into the peel of citrus and the leaf of a dandelion.

    I think the palate is somewhat behind the nose and finish. This reminded me of cold December nights in Europe and Christmas markets with mulled wine. A very seasonal drink for me.
    • Nose
      83 83
      initially seems like just sherry but mutates into redcurrant jam with some petrol, crystallised ginger
    • Taste
      80 80
      honeysuckle, a bit dry but the lightness of the spirit prevents it from being offensively dry in that regard
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium->long; very spicy, cinnamon, paprika

    A well-built Macallan Sherry Oak grade sherry whisky. Surprised by mezcal in the aroma.
    N: 21 T: 21 F: 21 B: 21
    • Nose
      Cognac, sherry, raisins, prunes, grain tones, vanilla, chocolate, figs, spices, herbaceous, mezcal, almonds

      Watery, sweet (sweetness 6/10), salt, dried fruits, figs, peaches, pastries, quince sourness and dryness, well cut.
    • Finish
      Stable, dry, sweet, chocolate, wood.

  10. Issie did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Fresh apple, baked apple with a little cinnamon, wild berry jam, blackberries, grasses, some earth, cherry chewing gum, dark honey, caramel, plum jam, milk chocolate
    • Taste
      Honey, wild berry jam, a few herbs, a few nuts, some chocolate

  11. WhiskyRanked scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Oak, Sweet citrus, baking spices, raisins, vanilla, very sweet.

    Palate: bitter up front, the vanilla and toffee goes away but the spices remain, plums

    Finish: oak, mild

  12. Numwierum scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Smell: Noticeably fresh fruit notes, especially red berries, raisins and oranges. Behind it there is some toffee and a well balanced spice note.
    Taste: Very gentle start, I find the fruit aroma a little weaker in the mouth than in the nose. But here are dried fruits in the foreground, figs, raisins and plums. A little nut is added and a slight dryness sets in.
    Finish: Medium length, some dark chocolate and a fine oak spice spreads out.
    Conclusion: A very balanced whisky that is not surprising and easy to drink.
