  1. SwiftyMcVeigh scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Solid dram, no frills. Not a modern ex-sherry cask whisky. Certainly young, but clear and pure.

  2. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Sherry is sweeter, more rustic. There is body, nuts, plants, loose earth. Green tea. A dash of vanilla, chocolate cake, marzipan, cinnamon. Behind, a certain freshness, mint, eucalyptus. In the mouth, it is still a little light, but pleasant, woody cereals, muesli, wheat and puffed rice. Some orchard fruits, apples and pears. The finish is drier, more beefy, on cola and nutmeg, quite long all the same.
