    ????: slightly cloudy, golden,
    ????: rough, strong, intense, rough, slightly coarse sweetness, a bit of candy, lively, strangely tannic, uninteresting associations with Polish oak: /
    ????: strong, sweet, a bit like a chocolate bar, though not alcoholic, surprisingly! There is no tragedy, although the sweet is slightly tart, which is not pleasant to the end,
    ????: unfortunately a bit tart, barrel-like and short,
    It is even ok when it stands, but unfortunately it bothers a lot, little pleasure from drinking ...
    ????: 3.5 / 10
    ????: 83/100

      Pleasant and distinct sweetness, compact and spicy at the same time. In addition, sweet nut cream, some chocolate and a fresh, spicy note of wood. This is followed by fresh, light fruit notes, plus a little honey.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Orange, caramel, spicy wood, pleasant sweetness
    • Finish
      81 81
      Pleasant, a bit flat, very slightly bumpy in places, somewhat slack, damp wood.

    Doesn't smell the way it looks or taste the way it smells - interesting experience. Overall tasty, but in the finish it cannot hide its youth.

    A great balance of distillate against cask.

    Sweet stewed fruits, blackberries and honey on the nose. A little dusty. Some spice hiding right at the back of it - a hint of cinnamon perhaps.

    Strawberry jam on the palate. Blackberries resurface. Some elegeance, sweet, floral notes. Hints of leather - but not in a sweaty feinty way - very pleasant.

    Much more robust on the finish - earthy distillate coming through. Blackberries and leather stay with me through the finish. Very moreish.

    A very obviously sherried blend - but the spirit isn't washed out by the wood. Clearly a delicate balancing act of first fill and refill sherry wood.

    A great dram for £32 in the UK - probably cheaper abroad.
