  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    For around 60 euros an 18-year-old whisky with a sherry influence that has a good price-performance ratio.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Red berries, marzipan, almond, fruit cake, vanilla, plum, orange, banana, honey and a dash of citrus.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Soft. Plum, vanilla, sherry, light fruit and peach, malt sweetness alternating with sour notes, cinnamon. Almond and nuts.
    • Finish

      Oak comes through, becoming a bit bitter. Dark fruit notes and espresso. Medium to long.

  2. _stefanmayer scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    A very well-rounded affair. Nice sherry influences, slightly spicy and sweet. Overall, a great whisky. I find the current consumer price of around € 100 just acceptable. All in all a nice 18 year old in drinking strength.
    • Nose

      Oak, slightly nutty, fine grain note and slightly sweet. I like it.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Easy to drink with a slight sweetness, clear sherry influence, a bit of spice. Nice, mild wood aromas. Nice.
    • Finish

      Oak, slightly tart and dry, very subtle bitterness. Enjoyable.

  6. holborndrinker scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A decent whisky with just enough about it to make it interesting.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Rich, fruit cake, marzipan.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Warming, well balanced, some sherry notes with mellow fruits.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium - a slight acidity.

  7. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Smell: the front section, ripe apples, light wood bracelets and smoke, middle section, orange preserved fruit, body-building fruit oolong tea, a large amount of honey gushing out at the end, the graininess is enhanced. She is a lovely beauty sheltered in a big family, without aggressiveness.

    Drink: The wine is refreshing, full and oily, showing various yellow preserved fruits, peach oolong tea, and some wood chips in the taste buds. There are a lot of fine and fine flavors left behind in the final rhyme, which makes people always want to refill.

    Feel: very soup Martin, easy to drink, cost-effective.

  9. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I tasted this in a blind tasting.
    Because I do not like the bitter taste, it does not score very high for me, but it is certainly a good whisky.
    • Nose
      Substantial sherry profile. All kinds of red fruit, raspberry and cherry and plum.
    • Taste
      Pepper, orange, plum, spicy (cinnamon, cocoa, bay, anise) something rubbery, European oak? A bit sour
    • Finish
      Dark red fruit lingers, but also a bitterness
