  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Just another sherrybomb, very nice and pleasant, although no trace of any distillery profile to be found anymore.
    • Nose
      Fruity, strong alcohol, sweet red fruits, spicy.
    • Taste
      Strong, intense but good drinkable for such an Abv. Sweet red fruits, raspberry, honey.
    • Finish
      Very intense, fruity, winegums, blueberries. Long finish.

    A decent younger sherry bomb as we know it by now.
    It goes rather in the sweet and tart note. In addition to the sherry, there are also spices and wood.
    It's okay, but nothing that excites me either.

    The alcohol content is very present ...
    With a little water it becomes more harmonious.

      The nuttiness is superimposed. Earthy.

    Well it has a lot of speed.
    Let's see what he can do ...

    The color is great.
    Invites you to look forward to it.

    Oh yes, it smells strong.
    It's not a delicate aroma.
    Rather strict, alcoholic, but definitely with its fruity and woody notes.
    But yes, after a while it develops very nice aromas of fresh wood, this moist stick of an ice cream that you chewed after the ice cream ...

    Very strong in the mouth.
    It drives my saliva into my throat.
    My tongue is burning ... going numb.
    But after a few seconds I can taste these fruity aromas of sherry, wood, and some spice in the background.
    It can certainly take a drop of water.

    I like him...
