  1. Maltmaniac72 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Pure and ok, but not very full of character. Actually Sherry Bourbon combo should work, but I lack the depth. 80 points
    • Nose
      Clear vanilla, creamy caramel / toffee, milk chocolate and very fruity notes of garden fruits (eg apple, pears, bananas). The whole is enveloped by fine woody notes and spicy honey. Like, but where is the sherry?
    • Taste
      Dry sweetness, citrus (grapefruit, lemon), persistent spicyness (ginger) and peppery-spicy honey. Again, to taste little of the sherry ripening.
    • Finish
      long, dry with lots of citrus and ginger. In the end a bit bitter, smoky and woody.

  5. rottendon scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Very promising in the nose, unfortunately disappointing in the mouth and finish. It's OK, but do not lure me out of the oven.
    • Nose
      Immediately dense, buttery, slightly sweaty sherry on the nose. After some time less butter, but now also some fruit, very ripe, partly slightly angegorene apples. The Sherrynoten are still there, but now hide between malty tones and stale air (basement room). In addition to the apples are other fruits, star fruit and a dash of lemon juice. Heated, the sherry comes to the fore again, tight and set.
    • Taste
      Already in the first appearance oaky with strong acidic hints, quite strong, while the mouthfeel rather watery, not very sweet. The nose can hardly be found here, only a little fruity impressions can manifest.
    • Finish
      Quite fast, he is gone, without any emphasis.

  6. m884 scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Mild sherry influence, some sulphur, a bit alcoholic, some cardboard, sand and tree roots

    Mouth: mild, malty, some alcohol again, tanins and a bit bitter

    Finish: Honey, sherry, short, oily, a tad bitter again, a bit pepper

    Comments: okay`ish, the tanins, the alcoholic note and the sulphur in the nose aren`t too hot thou.
