  1. Marcel74 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    What a beautiful sherry bottling from james eadie, the 7 months finish on the fresh oloroso butt are long enough .. after some time in the glass the fruit notes are very noticeable .. it takes a while to open .. a few drops of water can no harm ... after more time in the glass it weakens a bit, it is noticeable that there is little influence from the initial ripening, that would have made it a bit more exciting, the aftertaste is a bit shorter but it remains tasty

      Caramel, chocolate, brown sugars, dark fruit, espressos, creamy with notes of barley underneath
    • Taste
      86 86
      Raisins, coffee, cinnamon, dates and figs, dark dark chocolate ... later on butterscotch and again those brown sugars with coffee and candy .. the sherry is predominant and the malt (whisky) is therefore pushed backwards
    • Finish
      84 84
      Short finish, this may be because the initial maturation was a bit weak due to an inactive barrel
