  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Solid sherry painting, I like it a lot and is miles better than the 12er.
    • Nose
      Very balanced sherry nose, with oak, spices, sherry and dried fruits. A slightly mineral character prevents the sweet nose from becoming too sticky.
    • Taste
      sweet and spicy, round and full, very aromatic sherry notes, tart oak, very round here too.
    • Finish
      Finish, slightly sour fruity, currants, tart oak notes, pepper, spices, mint.

    Nice stuff, just basically zero distillate properties, but all cask influence. Dare i say almost a bit too much Sherry?

  6. WhiskyRanked scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Loads of toffee/caramel, medicinal lemon drop candies on the nose. The citrus is greatly diminished and gives way to dark toffee, leather, and oak on the palate. Overall a pleasant drop but I prefer the 12 which doesn’t have the medicinal note.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Cautious at first, takes some time, then nice nutty sherry with raisins
    • Taste
      88 88
      A lot of power here. Lots of sweet and sour fruits and lightly burnt wood.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Dark chocolate, medium length
