  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, characteristic scents on sweet caramel, chocolate, on caramelized orange fruits, on "sherry", on old dusty oak, vinified back.
    • Nose
      creamy, caramelized, on chocolate, candied oranges, rather strong wood, remarkable scents given the low alcoholic deg.
      back very woody, candied.

  2. jazzpianofingers scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Crazily dark in colour, heading towards black molasses.

    N: Bready sherry that texturally talks of white fluffy bloomers. Other underlying notes run along the lines of muesli, cereal bars, malty oak. The complexities are very subtle, given the bold fundamentals.
    T: Heavily woody, it's a 15 yo going on 21, though the standard 18yo may have something to say about that. Develops on dark chocolate & sweet malt, not much orange.
    F: Decent finish on a dark vanilla chocolate maltiness.
    C: This appears generously overaged. I found an expression i tried back in 2013, more charming and with more [herbal] complexity, though there’s only a point in it. Very decent stuff indeed.Scores a B[-]

    In my view too expensive. Dyed, cool-filtered, 40% ... there are better ones in this price range.
    • Nose
      85 85
      clear sherry, dried fruit, light nut, vanilla
    • Taste
      81 81
      sweet, caramel, again sherry. Could be more intense. Does not stop what the nose promises. Little spice
    • Finish
      81 81
      pretty short. Could tolerate more alcohol.
