23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.13 points

  1. D. Volkov scored this whisky 83 points Member Junior

    In general, very good. It is very strong in the aroma is the melon. But the taste is clearly behind
    • Nose
      Dates, melon, sherry, marmalade, caramel, vanilla
    • Taste
      Weaker than aroma, nuts, astringency, cherry stone, sherry, pomegranate, wood, slightly tarnished
    • Finish
      Astringent oak bitterness

  2. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Has a ripe and fruity flavor of cherries, peach, apricot and dried mango; later also oranges. Yeast dough, vanilla and sticky malty as well as fully ripe banana, almond milk and heather honey. Light floral reflexes. Over time banana bread with currant jelly and mint.
    • Taste
      Very light and almost thin. Slightly spicy onion of vanilla, cinnamon and pepper, cocoa, Black Forest cake and mint.
    • Finish
      In short, kirsch and cocoa.

  3. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: an even, honest, uncomplicated, but quite pleasant whisky. In my opinion, it is too dry and slightly tarnished in the aftertaste. Undoubtedly, I prefer this release to Aberlour 12 yo Sherry Cask.
    • Nose
      In the aroma notes of caramel, raisins, fresh bread, oak and spices are noticeable.
    • Taste
      The taste is filled with shades of almonds, candied fruit, orange and dry tannins.
    • Finish
      At the finish, malts, walnut tones, pepper, a bright honey-sherry note are felt and at the end obsessive, oak, astringent bitterness.

  8. PeterCr scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Consistency in nose and taste and some interesting dynamics going on. But complexity is still not that high but again it's only a 15 yo still. Sherry is there in the raisins.Balance score = 23/25

    Total score = 81 pts
    • Nose
      Medium impact on the nose with some citrus (orange peel), roasted flavors (caramel) and a bit of spice (hints of vanilla).

      Nose score = 20/25
    • Taste
      Medium bodied, smooth sweet attack (dried fruits like raisins), roasted flavors (toffee/fudge, some nuts). Not overly complex but a bit more going on then the 12yo.

      Taste score = 20/25
    • Finish
      Medium long with some nice dynamics. Caramel, ending with some spice (pepper) and some wood (oak).

      Taste score = 19/25

    • Taste
      Very spicy, cherries, dark chocolate, vanilla, quince.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet and spicy, fruity.
