    Very fresh, fruity abd candy-like whisky. Strong but certainly not to hefty. Very beautiful and pleasant dram.

      Full, fruity nose, red fruits, raisins, Haribo cherries, also some prunes. And some citrus, very fresh.

      Still pretty strong and pickering. Still very fruity and candy-like. Pretty long finish.

      Oh yes, this is definitely a 1st fill... clear scents of raisins and dates all over. A hint of plums with some oranges. Really smells like sherry. Some caramel complements very well with cinnamon and at the end a hint of walnuts.

      My oh my, such sweetness just like sherry. Raisins and dates again. Loaded with red and black fruits such as raspberries, blackberries, sweet cherries and a hint of strawberry syrup. A clear touch of sherry too. Cinnamon together with ginger and a small hint of chocolate at the end.

      Quite long! It stays very sweet with notes of raisins, forest fruit syrup and ginger.

    • Nose

      In the beginning it was actually something like furniture polish, slightly sweet, slightly dark fruit, slightly nutty
    • Taste
      86 86
      Sweet, full-bodied, slightly sharp, dark fruits
    • Finish
      86 86
      The sweetness fades, fruitiness initially pale, long-lasting
