  1. Zinni scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    I've had this bottle open for about 8-9 years and the tasting notes refer to the penultimate dram ;( Makes no move to tip over and is still a highly complex old-school sherry malt.
    • Nose
      Roasted hazelnuts, nut nougat cream, fresh orange zest, red gummy bears, some mint ... the nut notes become a little greener with water.
    • Taste
      Strong, but never overpowering wood, light toasty aromas, clean and heavy sherry ... slightly lighter with water.
    • Finish
      Dry and long finish, cooling mint lingers on the palate ... no, it doesn't need water.

  3. ConvalRen scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Old notes in July 2016: Just a score. (N,T,F,B; 93,95,96,95) - 95.
    Old leather, oak, dried red dates, cinnamon, brown sugar, glazed apple strudel, candied ginger. Old wet cardboard and raw cacao beans. Coriander, fennel seeds, poppy seed powder.

    2021: Old oak without the OBE cardboard. Deep, dark, and sinful chocolate. Don't see it as 95 but probably 92 or 93
