    Opened a bottle I have found recently in our family cellar.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Very fresh, citrusy, floral, lavender - quite nice
    • Taste
      82 82
      Again - fresh apples, a bit of citrus, quite floral with honey notes, strong alcohol burn which disolves in a few minutes if time is given.

      A drop or two of water helps releasing more of the flavour profile and to decrease the alcohol burn.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Not complex, medium finish with bitter oak notes

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Seductive Sherrynase, but then rather dry and thin and very quiet. OK again with cigarillo and sherry, but not necessarily nachkaufwürdig.

  3. Rustamich did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A well combined dram. Balance and harmony on nose as on palate.
    • Nose
      Creamy oak. Toffee. Toasted brioche. Dried fruit in the back. Wood is well integrated. A touch of pear cider.
    • Taste
      Crisp,quite dry but with a pleasant kick. Fruit and wood mingle into a creamy toffee.
    • Finish
      Medium long,spicy,with a nutty touch.

  4. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Nice whisky, but
    undemanding. Not even 40 EUR, making this value for money.
    • Nose
      The nose is very soft
      and fruity. All kinds of citrus with oranges in the lead, peel included. Loads
      of caramel and heathery honey. Hints of vanilla, cinnamon and something that
      reminds me of apple sauce. Nuts? Far from bad, but rather docile.
    • Taste
      The arrival is very
      soft with a light body and mild spices. Think cinnamon. Loads of sherry. Cream
      sherry! Almonds and walnuts, raisins, caramel. Silky soft. Hint of oak.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish on
      apple sauce and caramel. Mildly drying.

  5. BeatF scored this whisky 81 points Moderator

    rounded, honey-like with bitter-elegant elements; without fault and blame, but also without high nobility. This drop especially available in duty-free accompanied my stay in Madrid.
    • Nose
      Grapes, chewed apple seeds, sweet malt
    • Taste
      spicy malt, honey, very light bitterness
    • Finish
      white chocolate, malt, bitter almonds
