  1. kenisam scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Very restraint and balanced. Sherry cask influence is very harmonic, not "kicking". Feels older than 12. Overall - excellent drum.

      Light sherry notes: dry fruits, touch of spice, a bit sweet, quite restraint.
    • Taste

      Light sherry notes again, dry fruits, some oak, some pepper, a bit sweet, very balanced

    • Nose
      86 86
      Ginger lily, fresh greengages and cucumber, the nosing was pretty weak. Then there were sesame seed biscuits and green bananas, the bananas were unripe and sticky. More tea leaves smokiness after a sip.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Not-so-sweet young bananas, crispy pears, melon rind, green tea with honey and some custard tarts. The sweetness persist after excessive chewing, which eventually delivered hami melons and a touch of salt and oyster sauce.
    • Finish
      87 87
      BBQ sauce, some tomato paste, dried hami melons, black tea leaves and dried persimmons.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Kind of zesty and a bit perfumed. Dried fruits and caramelized citrus peels (particularily lemon). Sour raspberry fudge.

      Not super complex but fresh and fun. I quite enjoy this nose - it's unexpected but it works.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Still with that lovely raspberry fudge, but perhaps a bit rounder of a profile, and more spicy instead of perfumed. The citrus is here more on orange peels, and we also get a nice touch of chocolate and some classic sherry cask raisins and nuts.

      A bit more classic "ex-sherry", on the palate, but some of that zestiness and that streak of raspberry remain. The wood shows up here as well, but pleasantly so.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Dark chocolate, raspberry fudge and that lemon peel from the nose returning, a bit fresher than the mid palate. A drying and medium long, nice way to end this, if only slightly more woody that needed.

  8. Tangtang_WhiskyYoda scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I still think the finish is one of the best. In the nose and on the palate, I find the barrel too dominant for the young age
    • Nose
      84 84
      Malty, nutty, spicy, a lot of oak, some dried fruit, a little sweet, very restrained
    • Taste
      84 84
      Here too a lot of oak, nutty malty, some dried fruits, pepper, slightly sweet, slightly honey
    • Finish
      87 87
      intense, dried sweet fruits, nuts, malty, becoming dry at the end
