  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: an extremely fat nose, very complex, complex, Olorososherry, hazelnuts, dried fruit, plum, tropical fruits, ginger, milk chocolate, rum raisins, some leather and tobacco, in the background the oak brings in a dose of spice and some licorice flavor - it works very round and harmonious Taste: After the fat nose quite behavior, which takes a little to unfold in the mouth - a lot of sherry comes to fruition, some nut and dark chocolate, the very dry oak is significantly stronger, liquorice and some ginger Finish: very long, here too the Olorosherryry beats, and again a lot of dry oak with a strong hint of licorice, some balsamic vinegar, very dry at the back, with slightly soapy notes after two to three minutes It becomes much more fruity with water, the oak and the sherry step back a bit Conclusion: In the nose it is simply awesome, unfortunately, it lets in the taste and the finish. For one thing, it is just a bit too weak and less complacent in the taste for the very strong nose than the nose promises. In addition, the oak and the sherry are too dominant for me to achieve a top rating - 88 points
