  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    The nose is really to clean, great mouthfeel, behind me a bit too woody, but not unpleasant. Nice whisky.
    • Nose
      90 90
      incredibly fruity, creamy, with marzipan, fully ripe red fruit, overall noticeable sherry influence, some oak, milk chocolate, overall it makes a sweet impression, very supple, pleasant
    • Taste
      88 88
      also creamy in the mouth, sweet, red ripe fruit, raisins, also here clearly oak, some leather, espresso, nice mouthfeel, drinking strength fits
    • Finish
      86 86
      it gets more and more bitter, here the oak grows more and more, it gets woody, the many wood awakens strong smoke associations, grape skin, on the palate still slightly sweet

    Nice dram, especially if you sell it at its price.
    • Nose
      Red fruit. Slightly musty, but not disturbing. Also sweet tropical fruits, banana. Also some raisins. Toffee. Herbs. Complex nose.
    • Taste
      Beautiful rich taste of different fruits, the nose is confirmed.
    • Finish
      Medium. Something creamy.

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [July, 2007]  Together with friends I finished this bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in Juny, 2012.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a rich and bold sherry profile with a creamy mouthfeel that is very sippable.

  7. recursiewhisky scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A nice whisky with some good aromas and depth af flavour. The taste is a bit watery and thin. If it was bottled at a higher abbreviation and as an all natural expresion it would have much more oomph and a stronger character.

    All in all a nice enough dram.

    • Nose
      A fresh, sweet, subtle and yet complex whisky with aromas of dry sherry, dried stone fruits, sultanas, cinnamon, toffee, cocoa, hint of roasted coffee beans, new leather, slightly sour, candied lemon, currants, sweet clove, vanilla, honey, hay, grass, oak, nuts (almonds?), grapes, nutmeg and a faint hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      A seductive, soft, rich and sweet whisky with aromas of sweet sherry, chocolate, mocha, orange, toffee, cinnamon, floral tones, hay, dry tannins, hint of banana, butterscotch, rum, vanilla, dried fruits, ginger, white pepper, honey, hay, saw-dust, spices and oak.
    • Finish
      A medium long and drying finish with aromas of red fruits, malt, cereals, soft honey tone, bitter tannins, chocolate, subtle spices, some dried fruits and oak.
