    Not dissimilar from the Bunnahabhain 2003 PX Finish, which was a little over the top if you ask me. The same can be said for this bottling.
    • Nose
      Well, hello! This is far from subtle, an in your face sherry bomb. The tiniest whisper of sulphur, but it quickly dissipates to make way for elegant notes of licorice, tobacco and menthol, as well as aceto balsamico and leather. Don't worry, it has a fruity side too. Dark and brooding. Maraschino cherries and dark forest berries, as well as pure cocoa.
    • Taste
      Very big and oily. There's fudge, black forest gateaux and Demerara sugar, as well as hints of menthol and tobacco, accompanied by a whiff of dark caramel.
    • Finish
      Lightly spiced, but mostly sweet

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A nice fruit bomb, at the original price it was great value stuff.
    • Nose
      Extremely elegant and fruity side of sherry. Tons of berries and dark fruits clearly present and distinctive with strawberries, blueberries, redcurrant, raspberries and the usual suspects - dates, prunes, cherries. Very much like Glendronach single casks. Toffee and chocolate are there too.
    • Taste
      Very consistent with the nose, the fruit parade continues. A great profile.
    • Finish
      Quite short, fruity notes fade and a slight bitterness appears, but is still very pleasant. The finish is definitely the weakest aspect here anyway.
