  1. Kumachan scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The nose announced a beautiful mouth that ultimately is not up to it. It is still a very nice whisky, fruity and spicy where the influence of sherry is present. If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 86
    • Nose
      Golden yellow, slow and thick tears. Gourmandise! Freshness on candied lemon, pink grapefruit, candied orange zest. Come exotic flavors like mango, passion fruit. Spices and dried fruits also have their place, nutmeg, nuts and raisins. A light woody and well melted. Brown sugar.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it is full and round, the nose announced a gluttony, it is the case. Candied orange, cocoa, nuts but also dried mango, raisins, this nutmeg.
    • Finish
      Medium and long finish on nuts and licorice

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Smoother than cask 2007, with more caramel.
    • Nose
      Sherry, orange, almond, caramel, dark cherries, vanilla, peach, apple and a little marshmallow. Water brings out some mocha and rye bread.
    • Taste
      Caramel, orange, raisin, almond, hazelnut and eucalyptus. Water makes it a lot more creamy.
    • Finish
      Caramel, pecan, almond, orange and a slight whiff of smoke.

  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nose on coffee beans and raisins with alcohol.
    Mouth quite bitter on cooked fruits. Alcohol is too much for my taste.
    Fairly woody final.
