  1. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    perfectly balanced whisky, dry and viscous, but very pleasant, in some moments it even resembles rum. It seems nothing complicated, but the case when everything is in its place.

    A fine sherry whisky with all the characteristic shades.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Thick and sweet prune jam, dry prunes and black raisins, Georgian grape pastille, a bit of the inside of the leather ones. Sweet plum, raisins and a little nutshell, grape compote.
    • Taste

      Very rich oily and multi-layered taste. Sweet long noble aftertaste.

      90 90
      I don't even want to continue testing to keep this up.
