  1. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    I like the medium sherry influences although the colour might suggest that it is a heavy sherry bomb. It is very well-balanced, sweet and nicely sherried. It reminds me of the 16 year old Managers dram, but a little bit lighter on the nose and taste.
    • Nose
      Plums, chocolate, rum raisins, toffee and some tobacco. Pretty straight forward actually. Maybe some coffee beans, a bit flowery. Not overly sherried which is a good bonus. Some spices later on, somewhat dry and lot’s of cacao.
    • Taste
      Plums, balsamico vinegar (the good ones!), toffee and dark chocolate. A touch of honey, some wood. Milk chocolate which may sound weird as I also get dark chocolate. But there is something creamy going on. The nose suggests a dryness but the palate is not close to being dry.
    • Finish
      The finish is mid-long. Again with plums and dark milk chocolate for the creamy aspects. Also a bit peppery after a while.

    Leather, dark sherry notes, furniture polish, apricots, prunes, redcurrant sweets, grilled peach halves in caramelized sugar, buttercups, dry woody notes, white pepper, a hint of honey, allspice and sweet fennel seeds. Taste: peaches, apricots, apples, liquorice, cider, cassis, blossom honey and candied ginger, accompanied by notes of wood. Finish: Again a mix of apples, peaches and apricots mixed with honey, pepper and wood. A little dry finish. Rather short to medium with sherry, leather, wood and currants. n90, t88, f89

    Nice sherried whisky, with the nose being the best part, but overall it's an enjoyable dram without a doubt.

      Pretty smooth, still some pepper on the tongue, licorice, prunes, a sour note underneath. Strong and a full taste, a bit of chocolate too.
    • Finish

      Still heavy, tobacco, prunes, still some sour underneath, pretty long. Some chocolate as well.

      A really fichly sherry profile with lots of raisins, plums and sweet sherry. Some tabacco comes trough as well and surprising enough even some green apples.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is long and full of red fruits, even some haselnut and almond nuts.

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good mole, a sherry barrel dominates, but through it the base often breaks through, widening the range and adding depths. A nice fresh finish, not too sweet overall, thick enough and powerful for 50%.
    • Nose
      Open, wet, wet boards, furniture varnish, stain, raisins, herbarium, moist earth, ink, leavard, light floral notes.
    • Taste
      Saturated, spicy, oak, varnish, flower-honey tones, dried fruits, prunes, iumum, burnt rusks, porter, malt caramel motifs, cola.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, sweet and sour with a light beer bitterness, rusks, prunes, oak and varnish notes, dried mushrooms.
