  1. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Producer`s Tasting NotesThe

    nose is still emanating some fresh aromas, with heavy oloroso sherry

    punching its way through. A strong alcohol nose, very surprising for the

    age.

    However , the taste is nothing like the nose, very mellow and

    pleasing, textures similar to a fine old port, very smooth and heavy

    tannins mixed together with wonderful sweetness. A whisky you really can

    enjoy, savour and appreciate time after time. A very long aftertaste

    that lingers for hours. Christmas flavours ever present - spice, icing,

    alcohol soaked fruit and of course sherry.

    One of our very best.
