  1. MarcinCh scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Extremely dark brown-crimson color. Fantastic! The structure of the whisky is clearly oily in the glass.

      You can feel at first that it is intense, rich and elegant. Sherry influenced clearly, most likely Oloroso. Lots of dried fruit, lots of sweets. Raisins. A pinch of spices. A bit of cinnamon. Milk chocolate with dried fruits. After a while, a little salt came out. Caramel. Salty caramel. Subtle sea and a delicate bubble. Lots of nuts. Hazelnut shell. A pinch of white pepper. Plums in chocolate. Red fruit. Dried plums.
