  1. robbert88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    With 2 drops of water it becomes even more beautiful. More leather in the nose and old wood great round and soft. Now it is really going to be a phenomenal whisky.
    • Nose
      lots of vanilla, some coffee, not sharp on the nose at all for the high abv, sherry,
    • Taste
      Wow so sweet right away and your mouth will dry from the sherry right away. Sweet tutti frutti, some cherries, raisins, vanilla sticks, a little leather at the end. Surprisingly easy to drink even without water.
    • Finish
      wood, sherry, nuts, leather, pepper

    RATING: 91pts – |90 – 92 (A-) → Excellent| — Here the golden pantheon of whiskies begins.
    • Nose
      90 90
      The nose is dense, deep and very intense with a domination of prunes and raisins in chocolate, blueberry and plum jam.
    • Taste
      93 93
      The taste is wonderfully sweet, full-bodied and complex with touches of blueberry muffin, chocolate and prunes.
    • Finish
      91 91
      The finish is very long and fades away slowly with dark fruits, sour chocolate cream and dried fruits liquer.

    Soft Sherry Syrup! Great, I would recommend and repeat myself.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Plum syrup, perfume, sherry aroma. Ripe fruit, hint of vanilla. The freshness of Italian lemon.
    • Taste
      92 92
      The taste is syrupy, oily. Very nice as the 61.2 Abv is not strong or sharp, beautifully integrated alcohol. Dried brown apples. A little of Maldon quality salt. Anise is felt from a great distance, a little bitterness. Notes of sherry barrels and oak barrels at taste. Light leather aroma and also very soft taste.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Dries fast enough, soft, chocolate bitterness remains.

    Not very complex, but tasty.
    • Nose
      Dark fruit like dark cherries and a cassis sort of smell.
    • Taste
      Cassis, sweet cherries and plums.
    • Finish
      More cherries, oak and a little bit of white pepper.
