  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A true old glory. Majestic, even.
    • Nose
      Old, dry sherry full of resins and saps. No raisin juice this. Old furniture and varnish. Some dry red wine and figs. Faint waxy, fatty notes. Fresh leaves of various herbs. There are no flaws, really.
    • Taste
      A glorious marriage of armagnac and salmiak with a heavy, malty body. How can this be just 40%? The mind boggles. The sherry and the distillate are both just perfect, and the combination feels more individual, more unique than contemporary sherry bombs. I love this taste of dry liquorice.
    • Finish
      Aged sherrywood and some tannins. Resinous, chewy, staying, long. All this at 40%? Well done.
