  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Again a great mixture of its own, not just standard-above-average-Sherrycask, no no, here is something special at work, great exoticism mixed with sherry and exciting transition in the mouth of astringent to sweet syrup.
    • Nose
      Beautiful aromatic from the beginning in the glass, dark blossom honey, freshly cut roses, tangerine, candied pear, red apple, candied ginger, perfectly balanced with cinnamon, raisins, figs, plum, mango, some passion fruit, passion fruit and beautiful milk chocolate
    • Taste
      Raisins and figs, dry milk chocolate, cherry, ginger, cinnamon, a little mango chips, passion fruit, honeydew melon, rose water and acacia honey, nice dry-sweet mixture, the sweetness comes out especially from the middle, plum, thyme and brown sugar
    • Finish
      Very long, passion fruit, apricot jellies, pear, hints of eucalyptus, ginger, cinnamon, sweet malt

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    I found this one very difficult to rate, mainly because this is a profile I haven't encountered much before. The important thing is, I like it a lot and would love to have a bottle of this on my shelves.
    • Nose
      Lots of milk chocolate, but also menthol and plenty of Earl Gray tea. There's probably a hint of smoke in there too, but it remains a rather closed. Let's see if water helps. Brings out a fruitier side with kiwi, and lime. Finally just a teensy bit of smoke.
    • Taste
      Rather dry at first, but strangely somewhat syrupy too. Cherry, cocoa powder, and dark roast coffee. A rather meaty side as well. Water helps with the dryness and brings out thyme, but also some citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      Drying, with sherry notes and menthol. The finale is almost ashy.
