    As expected, a lot of influence from 1st-fill wood, but the barrel is wonderfully adjusted to the distillate. Can be enjoyed undiluted.
    • Nose
      89 89
      strong sherry, rowan berries, raisins and plum compote, a touch of dried fig, salty popcorn, the smoke is only fine and light, the high alcohol content cools the nose, hardly any spiciness, chopped hazelnuts, a surge of truffle chocolate in union with sticky caramel, cinnamon notes, old filing boxes from the archive, tobacco, dried banana chips

      after a few minutes it opens - the dram becomes clearer, sweeter, more caramelized, roasted almonds, cherry liqueur, blackberry, plenty of orange
    • Taste
      87 87
      a lot of dry fruit sherry, a lot of spicy oak wood and delicate bitterness, spicy cedar wood, granular smoke with maritime notes, the alcohol is very well integrated, then very tasty cherries with a dab of dark chocolate, roasted caramel, oily (almost wax), blanched almonds, tobacco , Earth, unfortunately slightly blunt

      lasts for a long time and warms with dirty and fruity aromas, sherry and raisins, nice notes of sulfur, dried plums, cinnamon, tobacco, smoked forest honey, subtle oak, a hint of cherry, slightly grassy

    • Nose
      Sweet/sour complex fruity sherry nose. Restrained, not overly sherried, not too dusty, quiet vibrant.
    • Taste
      A little sharp, but fruity, slightly bitter, acidic, sour red fruits, mineral edge.
    • Finish
      mediumish length on the sour red fruits

  6. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Great whisky. This oily mouthfeel lasts brutally for a long time. Glorious. : Love:
    • Nose
      Colour:
      Orange - gold

      Nose:
      My first thought is Christmas market ...
      Wet leather and rubber sole. Spiced mulled wine. Candied orange slices and lightly smoked apricot jelly. With a little more time in the jar, the good thing opens more. It gets dirty too. A little lovage. Moist, aromatic pipe tobacco with cherry aroma. Melted dark chocolate with almonds. In addition herbs. For me it goes towards thyme. Blackberries prevail and give the story a sour touch. Very cool.
    • Taste
      Soft, oily appearance. Then the spice and alcohol strike. A little chilli and the herbs again. A light fruity, overripe aroma also prevails in the taste. The second sip is sweet and sweet, then immediately a bitter component. The tobacco again. Plus something syrupy. Plums and again the dark chocolate with almonds. A hint of smoke runs alongside. Pickled sour cherries and liquorice.
    • Finish
      Long and oily covering. It pastes your entire mouth. Direction nice and pleasant with the right sweetness.

  7. ctu scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Nice sherried young Bunna.
    • Nose
      Sherry, dried fruits, citruses and spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful and oily. Sherry, dried fruits, honey, ginger and pepper, dry wood and citruses.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky.
