  2. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A big boy sherried whisky, but considering its status and price, I was a bit surprised that it is not more complex. Very, very good no doubt with superb balance, but I was hoping for old rancio or old books and did not find them in this one. A straightforward great sherry bomb.

    Quick notes from a blind tasting.
    What a delicious syrup ! Great whisky, unfortunately so expensive nowadays.
    • Nose
      Fragrant and rich sherry nose. Candied fruits, prunes, figs, precious wood, tobacco and some coconuts. And more.
    • Taste
      Red fruits, dried fruits, leather, spices and the coconut again.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity, slightly oaky.

    This is one of the greatest sherry whiskys I've tasted so far.

    Enormously multi-layered, intense and dense in the grandiose nose, in the mouth sweet, full, luscious. Not at all overdone or sticky, everything fits. Enormously long, balanced and expressive finish.
    Great class.
    • Nose
      94 94
      Dark cherries, plums, best fruity sherry, sweet. Waxy oak, orange marmalade, ripe mango, lots of honey, heavy tropical flowers, a little bourbon vanilla and cardamom. Dark chocolate. Floor wax. Constantly changing. Enormously deep and wonderfully expressive. Great nose.
    • Taste
      93 93
      Sweet, full, lush, velvety and wonderfully exotic fruity. Fine fruity sherry, honey, mango and again the heavy flowers, orange marmalade. Star fruit.
    • Finish
      94 94
      The aroma continues: here too, wonderfully exotic fruity and honey-king. Very harmonious, nice long, polished and round. Nothing bothers.
