      Great whisky and, at a tasting, also easy to drink as a dessert after barrel strength

    Not bad but waaay too sweet for me ... it does work as a liquid dessert ...

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt



    Nose:
    An incredibly rum-like aroma! Semi dried fruits, honey sweetness, great
    complexity. An extra dimension develops, offering rye spices.
    Fascinating.
    Palate:
    The sherry is very well balanced, and at no point over-steps the mark.
    Instead Sonnalta wallows in the gloriously fruity territory of well-aged
    rum and tropical fruits. Feinty tobacco and calves' leather. Just
    incredible, and incredibly thick and viscous.
    Finish: A spectacular finish of maraschino cherries and cocoa, a touch more sherry now. Very long.




  9. Bosi scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    A big whisky that swings between spices and sweets. The oak always resonates in the background. The best bottling of the Private Collection.
    • Nose
      First sweet notes of vanilla and marzipan are noticeable. This is followed by fruity aromas of wild berries, cherries and ripe grapes. Finally, I smell clear oak notes. Is there a hint of beech smoke?
    • Taste
      After the spicy notes of pepper and coriander, the sherry sweetness and roasted almonds dominate. Even now, the barrel is, in a pleasant way, to taste clear.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium in length with hints of cinnamon, overripe orange and oak.
