  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: juicy, lively, consistent whisky, with a good balance and strength. A real sherry monster! I was impressed by this example. I will not be greedy, I will put a high mark.
    Rating: 92 (n23, t22, f24, b23)
    • Nose
      Aroma: strong, with rich sherry tones and bright notes of spices. In the background are hazelnuts, lingonberries, oak and cigar leaves. After ten minutes, the persistent aroma almost did not change. Excellent!
    • Taste
      The taste perfectly combines shades of dried fruits, wood, hot pepper, cinnamon and orange peel.
    • Finish
      Aftertaste: extremely long, sherry, warming. In the mouth for a long time there are shades of prunes, dried apricots, black chocolate, coffee, grape seeds and delicate oak. Excellent!

    SHERRY LOVERS WILL MARK HIGHER
    • Nose
      nice sherry influence, not overpowering, with sultanas and dates, leather and tobacco. some earthy notes too.  in the background fresh raspberries and red currant. a bit of caramel, too but only a hint
    • Taste
      the sherry influence is much more prominent on the palate, with too many dried fruits to be able to deliver some freshness. not bad but only something for sherry afficionados.
      other than that we have quite some caramel, chocolate, cloves and nutmeg. bitter - sweet profile
    • Finish
      long, warm, mouth - coating
