  1. malthead-sven scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Overall, as expected, but falls back in the aroma something, in addition to typical sherry notes missing here a few facets. Well balanced afterwards, the finish is great and has a good length.
    • Nose
      fruity, typical Oloroso, as expected, raisins, brittle wood, cinnamon behind, elderberry, nougat, apple, peach jelly, cooked fruit, malty caramel, overall a bit restrained
    • Taste
      soft, unfolds slowly, barely sweet and barely any fruit, accompanied by a sparkling spice, oak is very present
    • Finish
      round, balanced spicy and slightly fruity, anise, peppermint and dark chocolate, remarkably long in the neck and on the cheeks

    In a great, quite complex malt. Strong in style but still mild and round.
    • Nose
      Very pleasant, fruity nose with notes of oranges, dates, chocolate and hints of leather.
    • Taste
      Stronger and stronger in strength than expected from the nose, but still round and supple. Again, date and oranges. In addition, a light, crisp sharpness with hints of mango and coffee beans.
    • Finish
      Long-lasting. The oranges and lightness dominate, but there is also a rather complex background profile that is difficult to categorize.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    sweet sherry, more of the nutty, elegant sherry, not too strong Beautiful yummy, round malt.
    • Nose
      darker fruit notes, slightly musty oak notes.
    • Taste
      soft, mild, nuts, sherry, tart oak.
    • Finish
      becomes really peppery, strong astringent, but with a nice nutty sweetness in the background.

  6. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice maturation, especially the fruity line. 46% works well.
    • Nose
      Sherry. Mon cheri, raisin, plum and punch. Spices and oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sherry and sweet fruits starts. Then sour fruits: blueberry, gooseberry and blackcurrant.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, sour, dry.
