  1. s415 scored this whisky 98 points Newbie

    Absolute sherry bomb!

    Better than the ones newer ones for sure.

  2. boborban scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    sergeColour: dark amber. Nose: powerful. Lots of sherry, tangerine, pink grapefruit.
    A very nice balance between the heavy sherry and the fresh fruits. Orange peel,
    caramel, peony. It gets more and more aromatic. Musk, dried lavender, even some
    hints of fresh parsley. It keeps developing for long, getting very toffeeish.
    How nice! Mouth: bold attack, on very heavy sherry. Extremely winey, tannic and
    woody. Cooked wine (reduced). The sherry really overwhelms the spirit here…
    Beware, for sherryheads only. Long, winey finish, with a pinch of salt and
    vinegar. I loved the nose, but the mouth is too sherried for my taste.
