  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a very luscious dram. Sherry shines through all the way with
    great fruitiness and elegance. Well aged and complex. A must have for
    the hard core sherry aficionados.
    • Nose
      Big, muscular sherry character. Full with dark fruits, plums and
      apricots. Waves of flavours coming and going alternating with demerara
      sugar, dark chocolate, marzipan, herbs and polished antique wood.
      Elegant intensity, rich and bold. You can nose this all night long.
    • Taste
      Wow, this one blows you away! Bulky and sweet with a massive hit of
      sherry. Dark fruits, plums, apricots, Sevilla oranges and brown sugar
      blend well with bitter chocolate, espresso and vibrant old oak.
    • Finish
      Very long and lingering. Sweet, warm and fruity with a dry oaky spiciness. Mouth-coating and slightly astringent.

      WITH WATER: Water tames the sherry sweetness with oak, spice and herbs coming to the fore.

    Nose: All the aromatic notes are aged - notes of sherry, raisins, chocolate, pear
    Taste: Fantastic complexity, deep sweetness. The taste of ripe sherry also includes chocolate oranges and raisins. Very well balanced.

    Punchy, quite complex: usual chocolate, cacao, dark fruits flavours, very good!

  6. p4blo scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful, complex and extremely rich, well, youngster.
    • Nose
      Reminds me of Kavalan Solisth sherry cask expression. Similar depth and meaty intensity of flavours, almost like sherry rather than whisky. Thick molasses, soy sauce, balsamico, stewed fruits, dark chocolate, espresso. Some mushrooms too.
    • Taste
      Molasses, demerara sugar, stewed prunes, raisins, berries. Cocoa, roasted coffee. Very rich and vibrant. Blood oranges.
    • Finish
      Long, bitter, drying on espresso and dark chocolate.
