    The aroma is bright, rich, intense, sweet. Creamy sherry notes, canned peaches, overripe apricots, a little vanilla, tobacco shades, spicy spices.

    The taste is rich, sweet. Custard, dried fruit, fruity notes, honey, ginger, pepper.

    Finish - medium duration, sweet - peppery. Dried fruits, honey, apricot pits, wood.

    Conclusion: An excellent whisky for its weight category, rich, not scarce in shades and half tones, quite full-bodied, and just tasty and drinkable.
    To be honest, I did not expect such a quality product.

  5. diamond2000 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: open, dried fruit mix, - dark raisins, prunes, dates all filled with syrup, a box of spices. Over time, you can catch a certain sourness, green apple, apple juice and bread tones in the distance. Very sweet and viscous aroma, reminiscent of dried fruit jam.

    Taste: bright, rich, a lot of red pepper, dark raisins, sweet plums, fortified wine, dark chocolate, a little woody tannins.

    Finish: medium length, dark raisins, prunes, dried fruit compote, orange peel, dark chocolate. The finish goes from sweetness to pleasant bitterness.

    Score: 84

    Bottom line: a pleasant whisky, with a lot of sherry barrel influence. Poor for derivatives, but for my 10 years old this is normal. There is also its own personality, a distinct red pepper in taste. A copy not for thoughtful tasting, but overall it leaves a pleasant impression.

    Has something of an apricot schnapps.
    • Nose

      Weird chemical.
    • Taste
      78 78
      Fruity and wine-heavy.
    • Finish
      74 74
      Despite the 46 AVB, the finish is quite sharp.

  7. fnk scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A successful combination of successful barrels, I would say, sherry is not rushing, everything is how I like it. Delicious, drinkable sample. An unexpectedly solid malt turned out.

  8. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Pretty gentle dram, hardly any alcohol punching. A lot of red fruits, floral notes, some chocolate. Pleasant whisky.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very fresh red fruits, cherries and berries, pretty some alcohol. Some 'green' scents as well. Floral.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Some power but certainly not too hefty. Some red fruits, raisins, caramel. Chocolate. More smooth later on. A bit floral.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Pretty smooth now, gentle. Some red fruits, raisins, chocolate, a touch of licorice. Middle long.
