    whisky marked by sherry cask.
    A real sherry bomb!

    On the nose: We find walnuts, hazelnuts and then chocolate with a fine winey side but which evaporates quite quickly; beautiful wood, a little hint of custard and deliciousness when opening. The predominant triptych remains nuts, chocolate and wood.
    Taste: It's creamy again. it is always also well integrated in terms of alcohol. We have a kick of sweet spices, always chocolate and this time the visit of dried fruits.
    The finish: Average and drying.

    A great success that this Orkney.

    The nose is just beautiful - a high quality, beguiling sherry barrel plus HP notes; a little smoke is there too. Sherry has many different facets - from overripe plums to herbal lemonade.

    Unfortunately, the whisky is a bit flat in the mouth; I also have the impression that the sherry and the HP in this case hinder rather than complement each other. The finish is the same: Sherry and HP are there, but they neutralize each other; mouthfeel is somewhat flat and bitter; the taste lingers for a short to medium time.

    Overall, an above-average malt, but not worth the hype. There are better ones.

  5. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The massive sherry influence works much better on the nose than on the palate, so it's quite the drop-off from one to the other.

    Very tasty, but also a bit one-dimensional on the palate. Too much sherry disguise.
