    Well done and very complex. So nothing for in between.

    It is currently not my taste.

      Honey, a little waxy. Dark full fruits like raisins. Somewhat sour and at the same time slightly tart. Takes a lot of time and also water. Sherry and also oak can be felt.

      With water then full and also some spices. Cinnamon, a little vanilla, nutmeg.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Spice gets stronger here. The fruits turn into wine gums. Then there are toffee and sherry notes.
      Somewhat musty notes are also there. Very slight hint of sulfur. But immediately replaced by honey and fruit.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Honey and spices are dominant. Quite long and pleasantly warming.

  5. dominikbraun scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very waxy and fruity-sweet with light wood and spiciness as a counterpoint. Classic old refill sherry malt.
