  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    woody, on candied oranges, a little vanilla, grassy traces
    malt present, a little bitter chocolate, a little wax
    sensation that lasts even after removing the dram
    mouth:
    malty sweetness, fine and young varnish which has just been laid, a little leather too, the fruits on citrus fruits especially orange and cooked, candied, caramel in return
    herbs with their dried flowers, the wood again and varnish, a little vanilla caramel.
    final:
    on varnished wood, on cooked malt, cooked kernels, a little toasted coconut, a little ovomaltine, medium finish.

    Color: very beautiful mahogany color, copper highlights.

    Nose: sherry, sherry sherry, wild strawberries, waxy wood, nuts, hoping that the wood does not attack the distillate too much.
    A little chocolate, an impression of “my darling” chocolate. That's right yes, a little cherry liqueur. There is also a nice malt smell, minty freshness with a citrus zest.

    Palate: red fruit, leather, nuts, but lacks a bit of liveliness, complexity, a little too straight. Savory notes.

    Finish: short on the fruit but also a floral leaning.

    Comment: a magnificent nose, but a mouth too “wise” in my opinion. If that had followed, it would have easily earned 2 more points.

    Very nice sherry very balanced, could have benefited from a higher abv as lacks a bit of punch, still very good

    38 Years Old

    Sherry Butt Matured

    490 bottles / 44.9%ABV

    Amazing old Sherried whisky, well blended. It is almost like a Vatted malt in it’s profile…!

    it was felt that somewhere here the grain was buried, and a little metallic notes interfered ...
