  1. hawk31 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Luckily no sulphur-loaded barrel. My whisky heart frolics. A modern sherry malt of a very high standard with a certain complexity.
    Is it interchangeable? Yes, but a worthy opponent is sure to cost a lot more than this tasty Burgie.

    You have to give it time, then it develops its full potential.

      Sherry is in the air and not a little. The glass has been standing for about 10 minutes. The alcohol is very well integrated. Intense oloroso notes with red fruits and a certain dry wood note. Sugar candy, plums, removed caramel, nougat and chocolate follow, a bit of red wine cake.
      Over time a certain rye aroma and breadiness, cool.

      Proper start, the cheeks and the tongue are somewhat tart. Dry, Spicy, Oloroso, BAM! Roasted hazelnuts, roasted almonds, dark cherry jam with a certain syrupy mouthfeel and taste. Getting sweeter but luckily not too sweet.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Quite a long finish, even on the first sip. Dark chocolate, spice, oak, you can count the years. Definitely well matured and not gone like many current sherry malts.

    A very modern sherry bomb.
    • Nose
      Big, modern sherry influence. Fudge and plenty of bright, jammy notes, but also some orange zest and Greek yoghurt. Then cherry marmalade, strawberries and milk chocolate, with a hint of warm cinnamon buns. Some rye spices and port-stewed pears as well.
    • Taste
      Truly a continuation of the nose, albeit with some astringency and a little more acidity. Warming spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, but also rye bread, roasted nuts and marzipan. Some cranberries, but also more of those jammy, syrupy red fruits.
    • Finish
      Somewhat dry with soft tannins. Medium to long. Finally a hit of aniseed.
