  1. LeChiffre scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Typical wet barrel finish (but one of the better ones). As is so often the case, it works, it is a delicious, drinkable drinking whisky without rough edges. But not particularly exciting and absolutely interchangeable. This distillery doesn't matter here.

      - typical modern sherry finish, tasty but nothing special and interchangeable

  3. RJKrueger scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Benrinnes from a charged seasoned sherry cask. Reminiscent of earlier Signatory bottlings, just a little more expensive. Unfortunately, it falls off a bit in taste.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity and spicy nose, almonds, some cherries, dark notes of sherry. Takes some time in the glass, but then becomes very enjoyable.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Sweet start, but the spicy notes quickly outweigh the more and more bitter parts.
    • Finish
      85 85
      In the finish, the bitter notes decrease more and more and a very nice sherry note remains.

  4. WhiskyOli scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Fruity mixture of sour cherries, currants and cola powder - slightly acidic but pleasantly mild fruit cocktail - very tasty! medium long finish

  5. 2ndSip scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    definitely give it enough time in the glass; the aromas are rather delayed after it seemed very closed at first.
    At first I thought of a PX, but after a while you realize that it's more of an Oloroso, although this one is quite sweet.
    The flavors on the nose are really fun if you're into sherry-driven malts that bring some sweetness without being PX sticky.
    Not quite as sweet in taste, but great Oloroso taste; it's pretty heavily charged - there's not much left of the starting distillate.
    If you like sherry malts, you're welcome.
    [86 - 82 = good whisky -> get (second) bottle? Maybe...] For 50 / max. 55 euros I would actually buy a whole bottle; beyond 60 euros.... nope, it doesn't have to be, the sample is enough for me.
    • Nose
      88 88
      heavy, dark aromas (initially seems like an extremely charged sherry malt from a rather "wet" cask).
      Sweet aromas, honey, caramel, fudge. Dark fruits of raisins, plums, dates, figs; Nut nougat stays in the background at first, but then becomes clearer over time.
      The honey turns into blossom honey, which is then also quite sweet. Leather polish, "rustic oak wall unit", cedar wood, sherry seasoning, but everything looks fresh and not "dusty, old books, etc.", as is often the case with Oloroso.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Spicy, creamy-oily mouthfeel, slight tingling on the tongue, more spiciness, but then dark fruits are also quickly noticeable, especially raisins, dates and figs. The cutie is holding back a little more here;
      the drier type of Oloroso comes into its own, it becomes drier, also brings an oak note from the sherry, slightly tart at the end (coffee powder).
      2nd Sip: fruitier, then spiciness again, nice Oloroso, honey, sweetness of caramel, again slightly tart moments, but not too exaggerated.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Oak tannins, sherry spiciness, remains fruity, appears drier; overall lasts for a medium to long time; especially the tart wood note and the sherry spices last a long time.
      With a significant delay, well-ripened hazelnuts come to the fore.
