    COLOUR: light amber
    - a smooth, pleasant single malt with good
    sherry note
    - in comparison definitely better than the 10 J. (more intense, more volume (also has 3% more) and also more sherry aroma)
    - Price for the current bottling around 30€ is also ok

  6. keizerjos scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Low expectations. Fragrance promises a lot of good. Scented wood, soft, warm. First sip sharp and a little sour. Sherry, that should be clear. Little cardboard. Little depth. Sherry, though, and that's getting better and better. Some honey. Well. Bye.

    Its really plesent to drink
    • Nose
      Honey, spicy, maltiness - hints of sherry.
    • Taste
      Light body, not oily at all. Smooth.

      Spicy on the tounge. Honey.
    • Finish
      Some characteristics of wood. Still spicy. Medium long finish. Somewhat sweet.

  10. malthead-sven scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    12-15 years, sherry barrel, 43-46%, maybe Glenfarclas or Balvenie, overall very balanced
    • Nose
      Blind tasting! Honey, orange peel, sherry, hazelnuts, a bit of peppermint, then later wood shades and dried fruits
    • Taste
      dry with sherry, tangerines, rather soft than strong
    • Finish
      sticky-sweet, with nutty notes, not very bitter, almonds, medium-long
