  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 96 points Moderator

    Wow, what a complexity and balance - absolutely flawless but still some very interesting notes such as fine leathery which is very difficult to stay on the good side - fantastic!
    • Nose
      Intense, nutty, dried fruits, dates, plums, nutmeg, cloves, dark chocolate, tobacco, whiffs of leather and smoke - great!
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, more nutty, plenty of dried fruits, apricvots, good sweetness balanced with finest sherry wood, mocha, also cooked oranges, more spices - superb!
    • Finish
      Long, warm, spicy, more hints of leather and smoke, not drying - very good

  6. Pennymann scored this whisky 96 points Expert Junior

    Colour: Dark mahogany
    Nose: Prunes, sherry soaked X-mas puddding, orange marmalade, hints of pipe tobacco, dark chocolate, a mix of tropical spices.
    Palate: Prunes, dates, dried figs and apricots, cassis, dark chocolate, honey, cinnamon, some cardamom and nutmeg.
    Finish: Very long, fruity & spicy with a hint of oak.
    Overall: Truly outstanding. Not too much wood, not too much spice, but enormously rich and very complex.
