  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very, very nice powerful sherry mac from a UA, the nose invites directly tasty.
    • Nose
      Very nice full, toffee everywhere, dark, with dark honey, Wether's Original mixed with fruit candy, red apples, apricot, red juice pear, but also something of red wine gravy, light nuts and some sour berries, and slightly moist mocha beans
    • Taste
      Surprisingly, distinct salt notes, otherwise classic Mac from the nose, powerful, chocolate, orange peel, tannins, cinnamon and the gravy again, hazelnuts, dark toffee, etc.
    • Finish
      Good length, the tannins continue, the nuts, cinnamon, some pepper and dark malt, nutmeg

  4. tomy63 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful sherry, very powerful and very dry, with much more "class" than the new official Macallan. It just lacks a bit of complexity.
    • Nose
      well marked by sherry, dry and quite classic, chocolate, orange, a little citrus, dried fruits, a lot of hazelnut, nuts.
    • Taste
      powerful, very dry, shallow texture, well-integrated alcohol, nuts, chocolate, orange, dried fruit, some wood and spices (cinnamon, ginger). Better with a little water.
    • Finish
      good length, wood, hazelnut, spices, dried fruits.

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A sherry profile very focused on red fruits and spices. The wood is quite discreet. Alcohol is perfectly integrated and is not aggressive at all.
    Not very complex but very good and powerful in aromas.
    • Nose
      A blend of caramel, dark chocolate, spices, berries and nuts (nutty head). A touch of mocha afterwards.
      A very sherry nose, very greedy, very addictive.
    • Taste
      Spices, red fruits, hazelnut, some wood. In the continuity of the nose, very good.
    • Finish
      Again the spices (which now tingle at the throat), a little wood is more present.
