    A classic sherry bomb, perhaps a little less sweet as it might seem on the surface.

      Classic sherry aroma. Very powerful at first, let it breathe. After 10 minutes, the aroma is a mixture of overripe fruits with light creaminess. Overripe red apples, pears, passion fruit, passion fruit. Very powerful and intense. 22.5

    There is a lot of sherry, tobacco-like, tasty although strong!

    yes, there is woodiness in this whisky. But this is a completely different woodiness, not that young and dull rotten wood, here is a completely different woodiness - a powerful old oak, drenched in red wine and I really liked it. The nose is closed enough and the anticipation did not reveal the extravaganza of layers. But the body pleased, the nose and the finish did not go against the body, although they were not as interesting, the finish is not bad, but rather short. In general - a decent, interesting whisky, bright, not leaving indifferent, memorable
    • Nose

      fairly closed, animal wool, smoked plums and raisins, attic dust, stale dried fruit
    • Taste
      91 91
      powerful, dense and viscous, old oak, raisins, tart red wine, figs, very interesting, unusual, dark chocolate and tobacco leaves, toasted nuts
    • Finish
      89 89
      dry, dried fruit with spices, old oak, wine notes, tart pear, dogwood, and tobacco with mandarin zest
