  1. MarcinCh scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Full, intense, rich, very enjoyable. A definite influence of Sherry, closest to Oloroso. Red fruit and spices. Feel the power a bit.

    Quite rich and dark.
    Nice dark rich fruits. Wood varnish. No fault in the taste some good spicy oak. More varnished wood.

  6. FvanR scored this whisky 98 points Expert Junior

    Very nice whisky! Dry, fruity with hints of raisins and vanilla and leather.

  7. tommy12 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: full aroma, somewhat soapy, slightly adhesive, sweetness, grape-like, alcohol rather poorly integrated.
    Taste: Vanilla, sweetness, alcohol noticeable, mouthcoating (oily), no waves, one-dimensional, harmonious, not very complex, cardboard.
    Unfortunately, this bottling is nowhere near as good as some similar young bottlings from earlier years. Still, it's not a bad malt, but the price is imho for what's on offer beyond good and bad. There are so many better things to buy for it.
