    What a lovely bomb! Peat, bonfire, red fruit, vanilla?

    Nose: It's weird. Even if it's yogurt, it's a little different. There's a fruity scent, and it's hard to pinpoint, but to list it all, resin, grapes, and citrus. Hmmm, this is Sherry Cask. No alcohol booze. There are drinks that come to mind. Glance Scotia Victoriana.

    Palette: Watery. It has a bit of acidity and a bit of bitterness at the end, but it's not overbearing. It is aged for 7 years, but there is no bitter taste or unpleasant taste of alcohol.

    Finish: It was short and it was hard to catch something. However, it is connected with Nose.

    Overall Review: I can say that it is a refreshing drink. The acidity, bitter taste, and the smell of kurikkuri seem to be divided? Personally, it would be difficult to even think of buying a direct purchase. (The price is quite expensive) It goes well compared to the number of years and there is no buzz. Is it okay to eat it with food?

    the nose is quite different from taste. To be honest, especially in the nose this is quite young stuff, I even experienced a lot of 'new make'-like scents. In taste it gets way more mature, and more like a Ben Nevis.
    Nice experience though.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Ripe fruits, citrus, malty, a sour touch. A bit winey, and a bit of a new make scent.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Quite powerful, orange, malty, honey. Later on more malty, citrus and ripe fruits.
    • Finish
      85 85
      More smooth now, orange, some peach, pretty warming in the belly. Quite long, woody and then somewhat bitter as well, orange zest.

    Very good on the nose and palate, but very unpleasant at finish. The usual Nevis dirt is hardly felt, overtaken by the cask
    • Nose
      87 87
      Vanilla, a touch of typical Nevis dirt, cognac, sherry
    • Taste
      84 84
      a bit harsh, tart. Sherry taste is strongly present as usual dry fruits
    • Finish
      78 78
      medium-long, too bitter, quite unpleasant

  19. whiskyclick scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This is a very divided dram.
    It's - you love it or not.
    We didn't.
    Seasoned sherry casks, soap and very dry finish

  21. yorkieterror scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    The level of wood influence here is extreme. It has very strong wine-casked markers such as the jammy blackcurrant and acidity in the finish which with the rubbery notes makes me think it could be an STR wine cask with a high char.
    • Nose
      89 89
      At first there is baked spiced apple strudel, golden syrup and sticky toffee pudding which covers rich dark fruit compote, blackcurrant ham, grapefruit and a touch of orange. If you nose the glass for too long the fruit moves to plimsolls, plastic rubber (basketballs from school), a touch of gas and porridge. A note of wet flint ties it all together.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Big & Jammy. Lots of blackcurrant jam, more clove spiced apples.
    • Finish
      87 87
      long, drying slightly vegetal and tannic with more blackcurrants, a winey acidity and rubber.

  22. olegborgol scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Brutal powerful aroma, but the taste is mild, slightly sharp. Dark fruit and cream, sweet cake, wet horse. I liked this young Nevis. 22.5-22.5-22-22
