  1. barryfox915 scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Old gold.
    Nose: Fresh, floral, slightly spirity and meaty, on orange,
    tangerine, cherry and some hot spices.
    Taste: Very sweet and malty, before becoming very spicy
    (curry, coriander, mustard and pepper), with some meaty notes. Quite smooth,
    but with a certain oakiness. The finish is long, bitter-sweet, spicy, peppery,
    and slightly rough. Diluted, it becomes more on caramel.
    General Impression: The South African sherry butt gives a
    different flavour than European Sherry casks: it is a bit rougher and closer to
    the American Sherry casks (for the ones who have tasted it). The winey
    influences disappeared some weeks after opening.
