10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.27 points

  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    needs a lot of water and time to penetrate its ostensible alcoholic dominance, but then its soft sherry creaminess clearly emerges - unfortunately overpriced
    • Nose
      89 89
      The alcoholic pungency should be taken with water - rum raisins and red grape juice, nougat and caramel, dried red cranberries, rose hip jam
    • Taste
      90 90
      Caramel, nougat, pomace, spices, sweet and sour cherries and raspberries, behind which the dryness of the oak barrel appears - significantly softer in the mouth than in the nose
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium-length and soft, with a subtle oak at the end - dangerously tasty despite the high alcohol content

  3. SAND scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    (TASTED BLIND)
    NOSE: Lovely nose with old sherry and rum notes, then old polished mahogany wood, marsipan, almond drops. (91p) With time less wood and more rum, marsipan and almond drops (92p)
    TASTE: The arrival is slightly sweet, bourbon like, on the mid palate quite a bit of wood and some pepper. Also citrus fruitiness. (91p)
    FINISH: Sweet and oily. Fairly long. (89p)
    OVERALL: Total score 91 points.
