  1. maltdaddy scored this whisky 95 points Member Junior

    Intense flavors but quite clean and light to the palate. Elegant and intense I would describe it.
    • Nose
      The cask strength makes this more intense then the regular 18 year old at 46% but the profile is quite similar only darker
    • Taste
      Clean to the palate with very dark sherry style of flavors. Raisins, figs, Christmas fruitcake and dark plum jams
    • Finish
      the finish is soft elegant and lingering

  4. JoshNRW scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Between 89 and 90.5 points for a super intense but extremely clean sherry profile of the spicier kind. Everything fits here, the harmony, the cleanliness and the intensity. This is still not an ancient profile overall, but a very, very good sherry profile for 2022 with no tartaric acidity or heavy-duty sweetness. The nutty aromas of the spicy Oloroso are very finely structured.
    The sometimes thin and light fruitiness of a Tamdhu, which I usually don't always appreciate very much, is balanced really well here by the clean distillate and the finish in a good cask and the 18 years in CS.
    I like it much better than expected. One of the best Oloroso malts I've had this year.
    Almost 90 points today
