    nose
    Very sweet sherry nose, smells super round, soft, old, dignified. Tropical fruits, especially bananas, mixed with raisins and cane sugar. Chocolate, fermented mango and overripe pineapple. Super, complex, stunning!

    taste
    Furthermore super soft and creamy, the alcohol is perfectly integrated and embedded. The tropical fruits and light refill sherry aromas continue to dominate. Cinnamon, chocolate, some leather and then again overripe pineapple and banana.

    Exit
    Continuing the same pattern, still fantastic. The taste stays in the mouth for a long time, now with a slight bitter note. Simply to enjoy.

    Conclusion
    A dreamlike paint that is convincing all along the line. Wonderful flavors, perfect strength, great complexity.
    N-94, T-92, F-92 totally very great 93 points

    Tried only 50ml.
    Nose - heavy overripe red fruits and oak presence,
    Palate - fruitiness from nose continues on the taste, oak also presented.
    Finish - dry, oaky

    Really nice whisky, good balance of oak and distillate.
    Cracker
    • Nose
      First impression is mindblowong, fruity and laced with sherry. A bunch of ripe bananas, then its banana dipped in chocolate, followed up by other tropical fruits such as papaya and mango.
      With time it becomes stewed apples, apple bread with honey and cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Oh yeah, stewed apples and pears, chocolate drops with rum raisin fudge. It's thick and coats the mouth, wood spice and plenty of dried orange.
    • Finish
      Finish is medium to long, slightly oaky but with plenty if chocolate lingering.
