  1. 2ndSip scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    very nice aroma in the nose, there is a bit of everything ... you could just smell it for over an hour.
    The taste is then no longer quite as diverse; rather concentrated on the spice and nut aroma of the sherry note.
    All in all well done - could only use more depth in the taste and especially in the finish. Then you realize that it's only been 9 years.
    [85 - 81 = delicious -> get a second bottle if price is within the range]
    • Nose
      88 88
      cooked fruit salad (juicy apricot, plum, raisin, pear), the sherry comes through gently, a certain nutty note resonates in the background.
      The sweetness of honey and caramel, but then again the sweetness of the different fruits ... nice, varied game.
      The nut flavors are becoming more and more evident: hazelnut and even stronger walnut.
      After the nut aromas become clearer, there is a (slightly) floral aroma in the background.
      In addition, a whole spice mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, lovage and a little spice from a charred oak.
      Every now and then an alcoholic / spicy note stings your nose briefly; but overall the alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      84 84
      spicy start, it is immediately present on the tongue. It becomes more viscous, spices everywhere, the fruits are pushed into the background.
      The sherry with the nut aroma prevails. Tingling sharpness on the tongue, then notices the "only" nine years.
      second sip: spicy again, a peppery note continues to push through, it becomes a bit tart (but not bitter).
      The tart note goes in the direction of dark / dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      82 82
      bitter notes take over, nut aroma and spices stay on the tongue for a while ... which continues to struggle with the alcohol (could be the day's form).
      A little oak, spice and the dark chocolate note ... and then it's gone; he lacks age.

    This is just lovely.

    N: Red fruits, some fizziness, vanilla and loads of chocolate.

  6. Finn2206 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice expression which shows what a good sherry Cask can bring.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Red fruits, dried fruits, honey, spicy
    • Taste
      85 85
      Caramel sweet, a little less of the fruits from the nose, wood
    • Finish
      84 84
      A little shorter than expected after the nose and taste. Dry sherry finish.

  9. Izzino scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    This has exactly what a sherry oloroso lover would expect from it.

  10. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    a nice example of a typical ex-oloroso ripening

  12. LordBellamy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    with water: No, it's so perfectly adjusted

    Conclusion: great part, it has everything you would expect from a really good sherrymalt, without putting sherry, wood or alcohol too much in the foreground, only the youthful notes that sometimes come out give a point deduction
    • Nose
      88 88
      beautiful sherrymalt with some coffee and roasted aromas, raisins, dried apricot, hazelnut, subtle orange peel, plus a spice trio with clove, cinnamon and nutmeg, but also a little pepper shows the youthful side of the malt
    • Taste
      89 89
      pleasant start, caramel, toffee, hazelnut, dried fruit and pleasant notes of wood
    • Finish
      89 89
      a bit short, which is also due to the age, but otherwise the taste continues in the finish, sherry with dried fruits, nuts and wood notes, with slight bitterness at the back

  13. Max70 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Needs a bit a water to reveal all the flavor....

  14. Segens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    very complex paints despite its young age - changes constantly in the glass and on the palate - very dry sherry malt but great PLV
