  1. DerDennis! scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    Very decent aromas on the nose, but only with some time in the glass. At first the sherry dominates too much.

    A somewhat artificial note and slightly bitter tannins bother me in the taste.

    The long finish is also somewhat clouded by this.

  7. thijs100 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    There’s quite a disparity between the nose and palate, the latter of which is dryer than you’d expect.
    • Nose
      Touches of burlap accompanied by apricots and nectarines, as well as whiffs of beeswax and crème caramel. So very obviously more mature than The Original and Cask Strength. Finally notes of apple skin, Williams pears and brown sugar.
    • Taste
      Creamy with gentle fruity notes, mostly along the lines of prunes and grapefruit. Finally some vanilla sugar as well as a welcome touch of mint and liquorice root.
    • Finish
      Lingering ginger and nutmeg, as well as orchard fruits. Ripe red apples and poached pears.
