    This whisky shows what sherry casks can do in the best of circumstance. Phe-no-me-nal

      Dried fruit (apricot), spices, vanilla, dried nuts, but above all the sherry

    • Nose
      Notes from an online blind tasting ...


      Starts with solvent and sour, fermented berries. Melted plastic and a bitter herbal note. Medical, damp wood, rusty steel, green grapefruit and some menthol.

      The empty glass smells nice of greased leather and lovage.
    • Taste
      Very soft start. Woody sweetness, plums and yeast dough. Noble drops in nuts with kirsch filling. Liqueur-like. With the second sip, a little hot ginger.
    • Finish
      Medium length. Sweet with a little herbal liqueur. Here then again the rusty.

    Right now, not much like whisky. Malt whisky is hardly recognizable because of the barrel. Still a very tasty drop, you have to like the barrel, and it is a little out of round, especially when it comes to the integration of the alcohol, which also suggests a certain youth, but you can sip it away nicely.
    • Nose
      sweet, woody, a little schnapps, brandy beans, chocolate, strong wood, light fruit and a hint of rum. Is that whisky?
    • Taste
      strong, very sweet, very hot, and a lot of tart wood notes, with a generally restless mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      a lot of tart oak, with a slightly sweetish vinous note, not too long, a bit bitter at the end.

  7. Malthead19 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    - a really tasty whisky,
    - great combination between oak and sherry,
    - very high quality packaging!
    • Nose
      intense fruity sweet note, sweet sherry, dark berries, cherries, old wet wood, very strong and tasty, makes you want to try it
    • Taste
      first softer and then clearly stronger, strong sherry aroma, dark berries, oak is clearly added
    • Finish
      medium-long, soft finish;
      long finish with dry sherry or fruit notes combined with spicy oak
