  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    This is absolutely glorious, an almost perfect sherry profile and only 40%,
    • Nose
      91 91
      Now that is a fruity sherry, all on dark fruits but also run & raisin chocolate.
      In the UK in the 70's there was a top end chocolate bar called Jamaican Rum, this reminds me of it.
      A slight parma violet note, then black cherry pie, with hints of furniture polish.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Almost too sherries for me at first but if you hold it in your mouth the dark fruits come through and like the nose suggested there is a little parma violet on show.
      This is rich on the palate , truckloads of dark fruit on show here but also a healthy dollop of spice, similar in some ways to mulled wine spices but not as potent.
      The balance is very good and the oak appears but it is so richly fruity that it is kept in the background.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long, remaining fruity & spicy with a tiny amount of peat coming through and a load of dark fruit jams with the main component damson & black currant

  2. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    I bought the bottle in 2005. Therefore, the malt will probably have been distilled in the early sixties.
