  10. Willie JJ scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    I live for sherry casks like this. Entirely sulphur free with marvellous flavours.
    • Nose
      Treackle toffees, seville oranges marinated in cognac, maraschino cherries and slightly overcooked lime marmalade. Cocoa and coffee grounds. A stunning sherry cask.
    • Taste
      Leads with dark toast and slightly bitter coffee, but there's plenty of barley sugar and cocoa to sweeten it.
    • Finish
      Mouth watering chocolate fudge and Java coffee. Dries to a sugar, cocoa, cinammon climax. Little coffee reprises carry on for a few minutes.

    a little bit dissapointing for me
    Too much malt and licorice

  12. spatti scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      first cherry and chocolate, then plum and lovage, in the end light notes of biscuit and apricot
    • Taste
      woody, full and rich body. alcohol is decent.
    • Finish
      finish comes quite fast, wood and sherry combined with lovage again, long lasting
