  6. drkrylov scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet. Marzipan. Notably nutty. Very heavy sherry.
    • Taste
      Soft, smooth, juicy. Malty nuttiness. Liquorice.
    • Finish
      A firm, assertive, hug. Enwrapping.

  7. DramWhisky scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    (23/25)  Balance is nice, just seems a little rough around the edges. A very nice sherried dram when you want something that really showcases sherry.
    • Nose
      ( 20/25)  Leather, black tea leaves, dried fruits ( figs, raisins, prunes). To round it out a very nice array of baking spices and wood notes.
    • Taste
      ( 20/25) A lot of the baking spices referenced earlier, with a touch of diluted burnt sugar.  A lot of figs and raisins, and perhaps a touch of coco powder.
    • Finish
      ( 19/25) Baking spicies, cinnamon, nutmeg, wood notes, and some dried golden raisins.   Touch of sweetness ( mostly in burnt sugar notes)
