  1. Anviltrust scored this whisky 84 points Newbie

    Trial purchase as I love Amarone wine (when done well). It does however not directly remind me of that but what it does give is a change from the regular Sherry-like profiles so many Whiskys have (and hard to destinguish). This is clearly 'lighter' (even with the 50%) and fruitier. I like, I want more.

      Like the ultimate Sherry finished Whisky. Remember those bright red cherries used on birthday cakes? Well that. The percentage does not hit me as hard, it's just.. nice. Right up my street.

      The percentage does it for me. Some might say too much but for me it is spot on. I can perfectly get all the more fruitier notes than a regular Sherry bomb.

      Medium, not woody - so good for me. Makes me want another sip and that is a good sign!
