  1. redlightsflash89 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Wow this is a very unique whisky. It's not your ordinary sherry whisky and you can taste that it is not the oldest whisky. Strong notes of sherry but very well rounded and super interesting to drink.

      Sweet, grapes, sherry, vanilla, bailey's (?) citrus, red wine, fresh cut grass, pineapple. The nose is very good.

      It very much is what you expect of the nose very sweet, caramel, vanilla but also wild. You get that lovely wood taste fighting against the sherry sweetness. Very interesting and unique

      Very long finish rounds out the taste perfectly. Wood, sherry, raisins, cheesecake, again very sweet but in a very good and balanced way

    A very typical representative of an uncomplicated, flattering Speysider from the PX barrel with full barrel strength on the palate. The whole range of liqueur-tart sherry flavors has plenty of room to spread out here. A very tasty wood seasoning provides a good basic structure. A successful and also totally drinkable thing, for me as a bourbon and refill keg friend, however, a bit too one-sided sherry-heavy - but I could well imagine that other connoisseurs are looking for exactly that.

      A beautiful, clean modern PX sherry profile. Dried fruits: raisins, dates, plums; further back there are also a few chocolate-coated Amarena cherries. Buttery, also a bit “rancid” in places. Pecans, macadamias, cashews. Long-aged balsamic vinegar. Viscous molasses that alternates appealingly between reduced sweet and slightly tart. Fermented vinous. Somewhat dry summer forest floor. All of these very typical sherry barrel flavors harmonize very well. There is also no trace of off-flavors.
    • Taste
      87 87
      First of all, it is very intense and really tingly. The nose is shown here very well. An arc of suspense like from a picture book. From tart to spicy woody to syrupy-sweet and dry-fruity. Quite voluminous mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Round and full-bodied. Here, too, the very typical PX profile. Tartly tart with super-to-the-point, aromatic wood spice, which I particularly like. In the end, nice, chocolatey roasted coffee aromas and some tobacco remain. In general it seems to have been a great barrel, I really like the wood influence. My salivation is stimulated, which definitely falls into the category of "dangerously drinkable".
