  1. SimonOHA scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Bluffing mastery, really very good.
    • Nose
      Nose concentrated on old oak covered in dust. Solvent and wood wax. You don't need a lot of aeration for a nice freshness to appear. Plum, black grape wrapped in burnt caramel. Point of sulfur.
    • Taste
      Delicious mouth. Cream of dried fruits, cinnamon syrup and black pepper which thickens on the finish. Caramel of wood and leather.
    • Finish
      Final on fig juice and wood. Smoke from burnt coffee in a hospital waiting room.

    Not quite a sherry bomb but very good sherry wood, spicy, complex, well balanced sweetness - delicous!
    • Nose
      93 93
      Old furniture, wooden cabinet, shoe polish, vanilla cookies, pipe tobacco, dried fruits, plums, toffee, milk chocolate, fine sherry wood - great!
    • Taste
      95 95
      Little punchy, oily, creamy, liquorice, subtle sweetness, more dried fruits, pipe tobacco, toffee, little molasses, spices, little nutmeg, more sherry wood, little tannic - excellent!
    • Finish
      94 94
      Medium long, warm, little more woody, tannic, more spicy, espresso, not drying

    nose: big sherry, dark chocolate, creamy, a bit pepper, rum+raisins, after a while the wood comes in

    taste: big dry and bitter sherry, wood

    overall: perfectly balanced big sherry monster. One of the best tasted so far.
