  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Re-tasted for the Blind Tasting Competition 2020.
    • Nose
      Opening up with honey, caramel, orange peel, Werther’s Original and lemon yoghurt. There might just be a tinge of brown sugar, chocolate and vanilla as well. Finally a whiff of charred oak, but also some orchard fruits.
    • Taste
      Proper creamy mouthfeel, really thick. The arrival is sweet and spicy, with plenty of caramel, figs and tablet, but also chili pepper, fresh ginger and a slight hint of sulphur. A touch of lemon zest too.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Spicy and lingering notes of stroopsoldaatjes. A pretty modern, sherry-matured whisky.

    Balance (21)
    Not my style, too bitter for me (85)
    • Nose
      The aroma is heavy, wine, sweet sherry and sweet toffee. With a drop of water it gets much better, chocolate, lacquered wood, leather and grass are already caught (21)
    • Taste
      Spicy, spicy, herbal ... Lots of strong tea (21)
    • Finish
      Finish rose hips, leather, viscose ... dark chocolate, orange peel, varnish and toffees (22)

    A sherry oloroso cask married with a bourbon barrel: it proves to be a golden combination in this case. This is what you’d call a showstopper, a ‘thank you and goodnight’ sort of dram to end and evening with good company.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Juicy, creamy, melted and caramelized butter. Toffee joins the party, and invites along some coconut friends, white chocolate and some floral and grassy notes. A drop of water kicks the sherry and all of the red fruits into the spotlight. This is just a feast for the senses.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A rich and full arrival with a syrupy, chewy mouthfeel. The sherry plays first violin now (red fruits, figs, sultana’s… the lot), while the sweet notes like honey, toffee and caramel are singing in the back. The buttery notes are there, but less obvious and seem to be more integrated in the texture rather than in the actual flavor. The high ABV also plays its part, but a drop of water tones everything down a wee bit (volume still proudly at a firm ‘8’, though). It also brings a bit more balance to everything, restoring some of the nose with the butter and white chocolate saying hello in a luscious and sultry tone.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Long, dry (the cask influence) with notes of nuts, spices and wood. With the added water again the sherry shows up, making it less dry and more vibrant, with that lovely caramelized butter as a last goodbye at the very end.

    • Nose
      87 87
      Honeyed lemon yoghurt, loads of caramel and some buttery biscuits as well. Hints of dried red fruit and raw sugar too, with just the perfect amount of influence from the sherry cask, leaving room for crisp apple notes.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very creamy and inviting. A hint of struck matches quickly makes way for spice cake, lemon peel, figs, and cherry syrup. Some wood spices too. Quite modern in a way.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Lingering spices with a syrupy sweetness. Pretty long too.

  5. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It is necessary to give a good breath.
    The aroma is pleasant, dry oak logs, grapes, light peat, creamy notes, orange peel / 22
    Daring taste, woody, wild plums, dark chocolate / 21
    Aftertaste leaves tartaric acidity and herbal bitterness 20
    Not my profile, but not at all bad. Under a cigar or pipe it will be just that.

  7. Falang scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Great dram, elegant and smooth with a great evolution while drinking. It almost seems like this whisky becomes sweeter with every sip. Nose: Lovely with a strong alcohol prickle. Caramel and burned sugar with some minerals. Taste is strong and tea-like with metal and bitters. Finish is elegant with some sherry, tobacco and almond - plus - a special extra: something fresh (like menthol?). Wauw!

      Lovely nose with a strong alcohol prickle. Caramel and burned sugar with minerals and candy.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Strong and almost overwhelming but wauw what a narrative. This is a great bouquet with peach and strong tea-extracts. Hint of bitternes, metal and sherry. Kind of dry in the mouth.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Gentle finish that lasts long with something very fresh and surprising (like menthol?). Hint of almond, tobacco, sherry.
