  1. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    After resolution: It seems to be a good batch with no missing notes. A little water is good.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Thick sherry, cherry, herbs (lovage), well integrated alcohol after standing time, nothing seems spicy.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Intense, tart and spicy, with the sweetness of red fruits, the herbal note from the nose is also present. With the addition of water: significantly tamer, sweeter and darker fruity, less woody.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Tart, very dark chocolate, roasted almonds, goes into the bitter.

    • Nose

      Dates, plums, old sherry, furniture polish, leather, after a while lovage
    • Taste
      89 89
      Dates, walnut, nice mouth (good barrel, great oak), rum raisins
    • Finish

    Not bad enough.
    Sherry molt, perfectly drinkable, delicious.

  5. Wuid scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Sweet sugar, possibly dates and leather and a lot of sherry.
    • Taste
      Nice and creamy sweet, alcohol well integrated, spice and of course sherry.
    • Finish
      Medium to long in the mouth.

  6. MacArthur scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice part. For a 12 year old standard single malt it is well above average. Strong, complex-deep layered, nice aftertaste.

  7. El Bastardo did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Not as "great" as pure sherry whiskys that have spent all their time in sherry barrels when compared to sherry whiskys. Instead, he has his own identity that sets him apart from others who only go in one direction. Legs type "Jack of many trades".
    • Nose
      60 60
      Not too intense sherry smell and very light spice.
    • Taste
      60 60
      Powerful start that quickly and steadily gives way to sherry taste. A little spice is added shortly before the finish.
    • Finish
      60 60
      Wort attracts. The strong impression goes away quickly, but a basic taste remains on the tongue.
