  1. 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.

    The nose starts relatively mild and sweet with light dried fruit aromas, mainly raisins.

    In the mouth it is very soft and sweet-spicy.

    In the finish, a nice, spicy chocolate note unfolds over the dried fruit from the nose.

    A beautiful, sweet and spicy blend that puts the sherry cask notes in the foreground.

    Grade: 2

    A lovely blended malt that certainly will do well during the colder autumn and winter days. Maybe not very complex, but a tasty daily dram indeed. For sale for around €45 to €50, which is very reasonable in my opinion.
    • Nose
      Blueberries and plums but also sweet raisins and dried apricots. Rich honey and caramel toffee. This is followed by red apples and a hint of oranges. Later also a hint of ginger.
    • Taste
      Caramel toffee and dark chocolate. Prunes. Honey and dried apricots. Walnuts. A nice mix of warming winter spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Ginger too.
    • Finish
      Mid-long and somewhat dry. Dried apricots. More of those winter spices, cocoa, and a touch of oak.

  6. 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.
