    The spastic Indian cousin of Kavalan Solist Sherry.

    In no way a great whisky.

    Over exposed and extreme.... I like extreme, so a few points scored. The rest is for ompf and spice attack.
    • Nose
      Quite dark in color.

      Heavy sherry notes, wet and slightly sulphoric wood.

      Hint of oranges. Some more crisp red berry notes emerging over time.

      Alc is a bit "in your face" but then again it is 57,1% however it contributes towards a feeling of a volatile liquid.
    • Taste
      Hot, peppery spice,

      Buckets of thick bitter prune juice.

      Burnt liqorice.

      These two notes actually over power whatever else there may be.
    • Finish
      Medium lenght.

      Starting of on the burnt substance feeling that is getting rather unpleasant.

      Ends on a slightly better dark bitter chocolate note.

  4. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Another good but boring sherry whisky
    • Nose
      88 88
      Strong sherry nose - prunes, cherry, berries jam, balance with dusty agarwood, and garam masala. Milk biscuit, creamy milk chocolate. After a sip, earthy notes, tabacco, burnt cinnamon, wet wood. With water, more agarwood! Overall quite aromatic nose. but sometimes the oak will overpower the entire nose and make it unbalance.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very dense berries, sour cherry, wet oak, some sweetness in the middle, finish with tons of oak bitterness. With water, same notes with hint of curry powder?
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium long, oak bitterness.

  5. Joschbert scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Quite a deterrent without water. With patience and water, he shows idiosyncratic corners and edges. Interesting, but somehow confused.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Undiluted, I first find an irritating mineral note, paint and a lot of sulfur. Much more pleasant with water. Orange and clear sherry.
    • Taste

      Another charge of sulfur. The funny mineral note from the aroma on the palate, even with water is not pleasant. Is this part of the character of the distiller? The alcohol is very present. In addition, some sharpness, reminiscent of pepper, and bitter oak. A little vanilla.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Pretty dry sherry notes. Black pepper. Bitter oak stays on the palate for a long time.

  6. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Heavy in sour plum and prunes, old and dusty books in a dusty room. Dried fruit sweetness, Chinese traditional oinment, milk chocolate, biscuits. After some time, strong Chinese herbs (Dong Guai), or some root based plant. The Spanish oak is very prominent, some reminiscent of the old, good sherry casks.
    • Taste
      Sweet, strawberry jam, lots of dried fruits. Thick and dense. Full bodied. Vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, biscuity, dried fruits again. Quite dry as well.

  7. dramspotter scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Wonderfully strong sherry with an orangey/Cointreau tang in the mouth. For something only in a sherry cask for a period between other woods it has oodles of taste. Very strong sulphur note makes it quite a standout.

    The thing that is wrong is the name: I know the sherry is intermediate to the other maturations but it does not exactly scream at you from the shelves with a name like that.
