    The smell coincides nicely with the taste.
    • Nose
      Sherry, musty wood, red fruits. You could find chocolate in the distance.
    • Taste
      It tastes like it smells: the slightly musty wood is accompanied by the chocolate that has put the fruit on the side.
    • Finish
      Short to medium.

  7. wisekycourse scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    orange fruit, soft caramel, then plum brandy and almond,
    then comes the spices
    a note of smoke at the beginning, with caramel and spices
    an end that lasts with the sherry that stands out, and alcohol despite its low degree
    nice whisky, quiet to drink.
    A little too spicy, which hides the fruit aromas
