  1. whiskydramo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    This is an unexpected tropical fruit bomb from a distillery that's famous for sherry whiskies (sorry for my stereotype). The finish had a good start but ended with quite a bit of woody bitterness that I dislike.
    • Nose

      Ripe mango mixed with mango flavoured ice cream, smelled delicious. Some sweet wood like vanilla, butter cookies, also a bit like the wooden spoon that usually comes with the cup ice cream. There's yellow peach, cantaloupe. Finally if you kept nosing, you'd get dried prune and citrus zest when the fruitiness faded below your nose.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Rich sweet and sour fruits, apples, orange, grapes, pomelo, kiwi, not bad at all. More pomelo and cake near the punchy end. It should be better with water.
    • Finish

      Tropical fruits were here, loquat, mango skin. A bit of numb chilli. The tail was mostly woody bitterness, which was disappointing.

  5. Segens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Red berries, strawberries, vanilla, powdered sugar
    Palate: red berries again, honey, peaches & pepper
    Finish: sweet, quite short
    Alcohol is here more present and the whisky is not as balanced the casks 3715 & 2482 - the weakest cask but still a good one - 86/100

  6. TP-Darknight scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    SMELL and TASTE Distillery character clearly present, lush with vanilla, waxy with honey on a fruit salad with red berries. Then grape, peach and slightly spicy.
