  4. Korre scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Nose (20): Rather shy nose, even despite the high ABV. Nonetheless some woody notes, and vanilla for sure, mixed with (white?) chocolate.
    Taste (22): Less shy on the palate with spicy and sweet dried fruity notes.
    Finish (23): Looong finish (driven by the high ABV) and many different tastes are added in the mouth. Tobacco, raisins, lychee (?). Need some water to moisturize my mouth afterwards though. Blame the sherry!
    Balance (21): Not perfectly in balance due to the high ABV, but exactly what you can expect from a 61.2% sherry-matured youngster

    The color is a dream, the nose promising, the taste tart and dark, the aftertaste warming and also characterized by dark aromas. The overall impression is still positive, takes some getting used to, but still tasty and interesting!
    • Nose
      This color alone ... abrasion of oranges and citrus fruits, slightly musty and fermented fruit aromas, raisins and plum jam, blackberry jelly, meadow herbs with floral nuances, strawberries, lemon peel, vanilla, black currants.
    • Taste
      Fruity and tart at the same time, sweet berries flash and end in black tea with black currants and elderberries. The taste is not quite as sweet and fruity compared to the nose, tart fruit and wood notes dominate. Leather, sour cherries and grated dark chocolate, espresso, spicy and tart wood elements, a touch of white pepper, hints of furniture polish and dark wood, walnuts with dried orange and grapefruit peel.
    • Finish
      Slightly tart, dark aroma, steamed fruit, espresso with dark chocolate, shortbread biscuit with vanilla and a hint of old cinnamon sticks.

  10. MrDvorak scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    In a languid rich aroma of prunes in chocolate and a sea of black berries. The taste is greeted with black and red berry jam and followed by strong sherry. The aftertaste is long, tart with hints of milk chocolate with raisins.

    A chic, beautifully sweet, almost syrupy whisky, an excellent barrel and very good balance at its strength.

    RATING: 91pts - | 90 - 92 (A-) → Excellent | - Here the golden pantheon begins.

    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.

    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.

    Typical intense and sherried whisky. Pleasant red fruits, prunes, but it has overwhelmed the original distillery profile: This could be anything, no trace of Strathmill left.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruity, red fruits, prunes,berries,quite some alcohol. Blue berry. Full scent.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful, intense, a bit drying mouthfeel. Red fruits, prunes, berries. Thick structure,
    • Finish
      87 87
      Still some power, red fruits, prunes. Still some drying mouthfeel, some sour edge. Pretty long. Woody.

    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

  21. bikenerd scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Finish cask driven spirit with light distillery character. I would say, it´s worth a rating of 89 for the sweet sherry first fill whisky lovers and maybe 86-87 for old-style whisky enthusiasts.
