      Space-filling. No dominant effects. Very warming. Expect a longer reverberation than 11 years. Drying easily.

    For the price and age of the whisky, it is one of the best around

    A complete sherry bomb
    • Nose
      93 93
      A classic sherry. Explosive aroma of vanilla, milk chocolate, leather. For a cask strength whisky, there is no trace of alcohol at all in nose.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sweetness first arrives at the palate, vanilla complimenting with honey, then swiftly taken over by new wood and leathery. Finally, cooked fruits and dark chocolate. At the very end, there is an ever so slight hint of peat. Wonderful
    • Finish
      91 91
      For a whisky of this price, what a complex finish it provides. Dark chocolate, wood, leather, oh ever so changing.

    ***
    ????: dark brown,
    ????: intense modern sherry, strong, very intense,
    ????: strong, sweet, strongly sherry-chocolate, too strong, a bit too much "bites"
    ????: sweet, warming, moderate,
    *
    Strong, a bit too strong moden sherry. If it had been more arranged ... Unfortunately, this roughness bothers me a bit.
