    OK there is some complexity. The sherry is present but is not so dominant. Am I missing something? I would say I may have expected more peat, fruitiness. Does not work well enough for me. OK but not outstanding, just my opinion. (84P)

  4. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Disclaimer : Old tasting notes when I was still a newbie.

    Great complex, flavory and elegant nose. Loved the juicy mouth too.
    • Nose
      Typical sherry nose. Varnish, gingerbread, dried fruits, figs, prunes, blackberries, chocolate, roasted coffee beans.
    • Taste
      Rich, sweet, juicy. Continuity of the nose. With water, it's more oaky and fruity, slightly lemony.
    • Finish
      Long, drying, mint.
