  1. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    the first nose spoils the impression, but if the whisky is allowed to stand in the glass, it becomes very interesting and quite balanced. Dense, rich, dessert, interesting malt
    • Nose
      Harsh enough, herbs and spices, takes time to breathe. Over time, it becomes much more pleasant, acquires dense sherry features, raisins, dried fruits in large quantities, a little chocolate
    • Taste
      powerful dessert, nut butter in sherry, dark chocolate, raisins. Contrast with the nose - alcohol does not stick out and the whisky is very pleasant, despite its power
    • Finish
      chocolate covered nuts, old sherry

    A powerful and very spicy sherry tormore
    • Nose
      88 88
      The nose sends watts. Alcohol is very present but lets perceive an interesting fruity side.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The first part of the mouth is on the usual markers of sherry cask, chocolate, prune dates and then comes a spicy and slightly menthol kich which revives a certain freshness.
      The finish is unfortunately a little vinous
    • Finish
      86 86
      The finish is rather vinous, still very spicy.

    My first encounter with this distillery and, based on the impression, will certainly not be the last one - at least I hope so. I wouldn't be angry if I had a whole bottle at home. (Based on sample.)
    • Nose
      The very first impression is a handful full of herbs (lovage and rosemary are most likely to feel). In addition, gentle mustiness and mint freshness. Very nice introduction. This is followed by hazelnut cream, Belgian truffles and some wood. Occasionally, oysters and dried fish feed will also appear. With a few drops of water, orange peel, cinnamon, clove and cocoa (as a milk drink) appear.
    • Taste
      After the first drink, obvious sweetness, but just right. Despite almost 60% strength, alcohol practically does not matter at all. Cane sugar, toffee, dates, raisins, dark chocolate. There is simply no doubt about the barrels in which this whisky has matured. And I dare say they were good barrels. With a few drops of water it gets even more sweet. Dried pear and caramel cream. Menthol filling of candies.
    • Finish
      Very dry and very long. Cocoa beans and high-percentage dark chocolate. With a few drops of water lightly pepper and cloves. Chocolate After Eight.
