  1. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I really liked the nose, but on the palate the spicy theme gets a little strong.
    • Nose
      Very aromatic, nicely sweet and balanced with the sherry. Apples and stewed fruits. Caramel. Rum & raisins, raspberry liqueur. Still some of the original malt underneath the sherry. A fine layer of fresh herbs. Tiny bits of menthol. All of this rounded by some polished oak. Very nice.
    • Taste
      Sets off with plenty of bittersweet spices and herbs. Quite peppery and gingery. Roasted nuts. Liquorice and coffee. Some oak. With all this bitterness and herbalness, it takes a while before the dried fruits are noticeable again and it's never really rounded anyway.
    • Finish
      Medium long, rather dry with cocoa notes and spices.
