  1. vojt466 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    So the scent is fantastic, the taste is excellent, the reverie is perhaps the weakest part, but still quite robust and powerful. I got a miniature, surprisingly cheap, the price of the whole bottle I do not want to see :)
    • Nose
      Beautiful full-bodied aroma of ripe fruit - sherry, raisins, butter pears, strudel, red oranges, almost to rum, brown sugar, creamy chocolate, maybe some other tropical fruits, woody and malt - it's beautifully matched and full of chocolate cake with fruit
    • Taste
      Raisins, dried fruits, apples, chocolate, oranges, toasted toast, caramel, vanilla and soft spices. Taste once again dry, full, incredibly creamy and smooth
    • Finish
      In a fairly long reverberation chocolate cream with a delicate spice, dried fruit and again an apple straw

  3. pere scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Great old style sherry with a hint of smoke besides the sweet spices and menthol freshness.

    [October, 1998]  I had this dram during a tasting at Kyrburg. 

    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 this dram 87,5.  Unfortunately no additional notes were taken.
