  1. aspa scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    nose
    very cute. light alcohol, nice sweet PX sherry flavors. Caramel, cinnamon, medjool figs, brown sugar. Some paint, and something sticky and sweet, maybe something like brownies? Something fruity with apple and citrus fruits. Slight acidity, now also light spice and somewhat tart aromas. Some leather and light mineral notes in the background. With a little time, you can add a lot of vanilla.

    taste
    A little thin to begin with, slightly watery, but still with rather strong alcohol, that's a bit paradoxical. but after a short while, nice, sweet shery aromas come out. The full load of raisins, caramel, cinnamon, brown sugar and sweetened fudge. Very drinkable now and definitely tastes much older than the 11 years it has, I would have easily given it 18-20 years. Very successful paints!

    Exit
    relatively long and still sticky and sweet, like when you've eaten caramel fudge and your mouth is still completely sealed.

    Conclusion
    Very tasty and looking a lot older than he is, this is a very successful painting that is dangerously drinkable and you can always just have a drink.
    N-88, T-89, F-87 for a good 88 points

    Smell a little like lacquer and then something like a chocolate cake, or marble cake, if it's still in the oven.
    In the taste I have really sweet sherry with seared caramel and again something like cake. Something like brownies and it's Christmassy too. I really like it.
