  2. alectron scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Turns out this was not a sherry cask.... but in a blind all sherrry line-up, this one masked itself very well and the colour & dried fruits & chocolat-y flavours suggested it would be one... so excuse the sherry reference above...
    • Nose
      sherry +, dried fruits +/o, chocolate o, malt sweetness with a lot of fruits +/o, ethanol o, varnish o (90)

      Later: turns fruitier, malt becomes very complex plus the whole fruitbasket & a wax-y note comes through (93)
    • Taste
      beeswax/honeycomb +, sherry +, wood o, freshly caramalized/flambeed mandarines +/o, honey o, (94)
    • Finish
      more waxyness +/o, some fruits & malt sweetness in an amazingly compact package. (92)

      Later: sweetness is turned up a notch, so is the fruityness & complexity (95)
