  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Neat this is around the 83-84 point area but with water it is really much better 90-92 points so 88p is fair overall.
    • Nose
      Now that is a crisp clean sherry, dark forest fruits a little spice, rum & raisin ice cream, faint hints of coffee.

      Very good.
    • Taste
      There is plenty of spice but also an oaky bitterness, plum, ginger, fudge and some pepper.
    • Finish
      Long, warming and slightly dry but with a slightly bitter finish

      With water:
      Much better the bitterness has now gone, it has a lovely sherried sweetness, the nose is the same but the palate has improved no end.

    Tasting: January 2023
    • Nose
      Old sherry, raisins, oak wood and well balanced spices.
    • Taste
      Beautiful oak wood, sweetness, punch, nice raisins and mature peaches.
    • Finish
      Medium to long with sweetness of raisins, bitterness of oak and coffee. The aftertaste is the best. Good coffee!

    Excellent maturation, but I agree with lincolnimp, must be added some water to avoid excessive bitterness.

  6. bokhanov scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    It's not very simple, spring. Delicate in flavor and taste. Flowers and a flower bed with flowers.
