  1. molpet scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not my cup of tea, unfortunately. Sweet (too sweet for my palate), a little bit nutty/biscuity and quite spicy/sharp - which is clearly the young age related. I am completely missing the sourness that I like so much with the use of Sherry casks. A little bit flat overall. My feel is that the underlying spirit is a bit industrial (not a positive). I appreciate the effort that has been made here and the fair pricing as well, just this type of overly too sweet and one dimensional whisky is not for me. Was the main reason why I got away from rums... :)

      The best part of this whisky for me. From here it only goes downhill.

      Kind of one dimensional. Sweet, sweet and sweet. Very sharp, but at least it takes water very well. Missing depth... Where are the red berries the color would suggest?

      Short to medium and quite flat/boring.

    Pours a clear, dark copper. Scent is loads of sherry oak. Nutty, bit 'sweet' impression. Taste is very full, high alcohol is noticable. Strong sherry precense. nutty, very full, bit of biscuits.
