  1. pianoman scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Easy, surprisingly little sherry. Bright fruits and grasses.
    • Taste
      Light with light fruits and spices.

  2. maltaholic scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The color is strikingly bright, quite unusual for a sherry cask. The aroma is initially very fresh, almost young and sparkling. Only gradually the oak comes out, paired with a little spice. Now add a touch of vanilla, it gets better. No, not sweet, as expected from a sherry, but strong-spicy. I do not smell anything of the sherry, maybe a small raisin. A first sip drives my saliva into my mouth - and violently. Very strong, it has a fruity taste. I notice my dark chocolate, spices, cloves and a little more intense now the vanilla. A good ex-bourbon, who gets more bourbon than sherry.

  4. Numwierum scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Smell: A subtle sherry aroma with fine fruity notes of oranges and plums. Some caramel, forest honey and nuances of nuts.
    Taste: It looks a little stronger in the mouth than in the nose. Oranges and some limes again. Vanilla, sweet malt and pepper. Pleasantly oily.
    Finish: medium long. Dry, dark chocolate and a strong oak flavor.
    Conclusion: This whisky can be described as pleasantly light and fine. Only in the finish does the oak grip a little stronger.

      strong, spicy onset, direct a powerful mouth aroma, dry sherry, honey, lots of spices, pepper, cloves, lots of oak

      long spicy dry aftertaste

    N:Quite rich. Oloroso notes but fruity not funky. Caramel and brown sugar start to come through. Milk chocolate rather than dark. Butter comes late.
    P:Sugary. Nice bitter note on top. Dark fruits. Quite oily. Nutty at the death
    F: Rich. V Rich. Fading bitterness.

    Interesting inter-play between the bourbon and the Oloroso

  9. Mannheimer scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Nose very pleasant and seducing, in the taste of the Sehrry is something of the sweet malt and spicy oak covered.
    Overall very nice malt, away from the "tourist hype".
    • Nose
      Very aromatic, lots of sherry, dry fruits (raisins and dates), then spices, oranges, vanilla in the background.
      Fairly dry nose, the sherry aroma is elegant and not dominant. After opening, you get a hint of banana.
    • Taste
      Spicy with wood notes and sweet malt.
      Floral notes combine with sherry and light vanilla.
    • Finish
      Slightly peppery, again elegant sherry and spices.
