  1. Gere scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very clear sherry notes followed by beautiful wood notes. Dark fruits such as Zewtschgen and plums. Brown sugar in ambush
    • Taste
      Sherry notes, and dark fruits outweigh then fine wood notes
    • Finish
      The finish is long, fruity at the beginning then very dry and cherry / sherry notes remain long

  2. The-Man-best-Friend scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Sure sherry, powerful but not as smooth as some others. A lot of dry wood and an aggressive alcohol make it look like 65%. A few dark fruits, a bit pi pa po then he was gone.

  4. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A dram-amazing ... a real discovery. No keep in all hands .
    • Nose
      Beautiful power, between the super sweet fruity and wood ... It's clearly SHERRY!
    • Taste
      I was expecting something more aggressive .... but finally very well integrated alcohol and a real pleasure. The spices are not very present and there is a certain roundness on the Sherry.
    • Finish
      A long dryness in the mouth that allows us to enjoy the remaining spices and bitter wood.

  5. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Tasted blind: Boom! I say PX (?) Powerful, dark chocolate and coffee. Sherry monster. We find this in the mouth with a little less impact than expected. It's getting softer even in the final. But on the other hand, it's also very dry! Big experience, nevertheless.

    Enthusiasm 4/5
