    Good sherry whisky, slightly spicy, full of flavor, soft, long aftertaste.

      Raisin, spicy (maggi), slight smell of varnish, gingerbread, caramel, dried fruit.
    • Taste
      Some dusty / dry, raisins, orange, some rubber, very slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      Long, soft, sweet speculaas, slightly bitter, slightly drying (not disturbing).

    Nose: Clear sherry. Many nuts such as: walnuts, almond nuts, hazelnuts. There is something glue like some Japanese whiskys. Fortunately, it remains very superficial. There is also a fair amount of subtle fruit, then I think ripe fruit such as peach, grapes.

    Taste: Euhm ... That is a bit disappointing I have to say. I find him rather watery. I can not find the complexity of the nose anywhere. I do not even dare to put water in it, otherwise I might not have whisky left. I really regret this.

    Finish: Dryer and dryer as time goes by. For the rest I can not directly name something.

    Comment: Too bad, but I do not find this special. The nose can still intrigue, but in the taste and the aftertaste he lets it completely know.

    Blind tasting of a sample.Great nose, you don't find them like that anymore at this age nowadays. The taste is a bit too bitter to score it higher though.
    • Nose
      Bramble, raisin, cherry pralines, cranberry sauce, tobacco, oak, syrup, rose petals, toffee, mocha, apricot, a meaty touch and a tiny whiff of sulphur.
    • Taste
      Toffee, cherry, orange, bitter almond, dark chocolate, prune, rum-raisins, cappuccino and apple syrup.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, roasted almond, rum raisins, cherry, mocha and a whiff of smoke.

    It just missed a score of 90, because it lacks power and complexity.
    • Nose
      Lovely fruity with cherries, passion fruit and also some rock candy sweetness. There's also a mineral aroma, and a hint of caramel and thick syrup. After nosing some other whiskies to compare this one to, my nose seems to get confused. I now smell soy sauce, which is new for me. During the second tasting of this sample the soy sauce disappeared. There however is a strange spiciness that is hard to describe.
    • Taste
      This is a very smooth, subtle whisky. Some herbs compliment plums and pears. The mouthfeel is right down my ally: the dryness and the tannins really fit this whisky.
    • Finish
      Fairly long with some smoke, bitterness and a little bit of fruit.
