  1. RL_whisky scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very nice extreme sherry nose, big presence. Initial spicy taste, rapidly turning into a smooth taste with an average to long finish.

    Tasting notes by the producer (George S. Grant):

    Dark roasted chesnut in colour.

    Warm Christmas spices sitting on a caramel basket of a fresh creme brulee. More Christmas spices on the palate, hot mulled wine drunk on a very cold day. Red liquorice laces and black wine gums also.

    Sweet, long finish, add a drop of water to take away the lovely dryness to make way for more spiciness.

    Bottled 2011.
