  1. Kuba9712 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Nose:

    beautiful old sherry, red fruits, cherries, milk chocolate, raisins, coffee, caramel, wood,

    Taste:

    Incredibly complex, syrupy consistency, very warming, intense, tobacco, wet wood, chocolate cherries, further floral notes, a perfectly complex sherry bomb, reminiscent of the best Aberlour A'bunadh batches (e.g. 7),

    Finish:

    very long, warming, sweetness combined with dryness, wood

    Score:

    one of the best sherry bombs I've ever had, everything works great together here - 92.5 / 100

  2. Cubey666 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Tasted it at the first Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam (26 November 2016). This was the last dram of the festival, and one of the winners of the day!

    Nose: warm, concentrated fruit. Syruppy with burned caramel. Chocolates and "Haagse Hopjes" ( = Coffee, caramel, cream, butter candy), Cranberries and cherriesTaste: it follows the nose very well, its thick and a bit bitter (but pleasantly bitter) of old leather and pepper

    Finish: very long... it does not seem it end

    Beautiful old school sherry. Quite different with present-day sherrybombs.
