    Sweet sherry, sultanas on the nose. a clean palate quickly gives way to wood and a touch of cleaner. then more alcohol taste than you expect at 46.3%. swirling, warming finish with some pepper. A good dram, but not worth what the distillery is charging.

    Brine and Sherry.  Beef bouillon in a good way.  Dried fruits.  I don`t hear much about this whisky but one of my favorites.  I agree with the review by "Alex," however I don`t pick up any smoke.

  6. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior


    The nose is medium-bodied and rich. There are notes of sultanas and Oloroso sherry, lemon and orange peels with feinty, honeyed cigar box hints with requisite smoke rising gently. The palate is full-bodied with notes of sherried peels and winter spice, crème de cacao and peppery oak. The finish is long and spicy with notes of walnut and salty melted butter.
