  2. magic_slim scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice, although too much sherry for my taste buds. This is sherryporn - a true sherry monster.
    • Nose
      Powerful and full flavored with sherry in the dominating role and additional notes of cranberry sauce, dried fruits (prunes, apricots), liquorice, leather and plenty of cigar tobacco.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, oily and bold like an oloroso sherry concentrate mixture with tobacco syrup. But there are also fruity (prunes) notes with aceto balsamico and some burnt cake as well. A little one-dimensional and unbalanced but tasty.
    • Finish
      Long with the sherry concentrate and tobacco lingering on. Some liquorice from the wood is coming up.
