14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.83 points

  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    This is good! Very nicely sherry matured whisky! Nice thick layers of cigars and leather. Also quite some red fruits in here too! I love this nose.

    Taste:
    Neat: Very thick red fruit syrup. Quite some cigarboxes and a hint of dark spices. It might need a bit of water to tame down.

    Body:
    Full and creamy

    Finish:
    Long length. Nice and good sherry matured finish, a bit dry as usual bit the dried red fruit notes keep on coming and going.

    Price:
    A bit expensive, but the quality makes it right!

    Presentation:
    Don't know this was a sample, but given it is AD, I couldn't have read the label anyway.

    Delicious full whisky, beautiful sherry influences, fruity in combination with white chocolate (in both smell and taste). Very successful.

      Full and soft. Red fruit, white chocolate, honey, toffee
    • Finish
      Light peppers now, white chocolate again, some tobacco, wood. Long finish.

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 604 bottles from cask no. 675031
    An unusually active Spanish oak, ex-sherry butt from this famous Island distillery. A polished mahogany hue and moderate beading. The nose is warm and drying and initially rather fruity, with macerated raisins, prunes in brandy, dried figs and dates. This develops subtly, introducing top notes of sun-kissed seaweed, toasted brioche, Virginia plug tobacco and deglazed roasting tin (roasted cloves), with subtle, tantalising hints of cooked pineapple and tomatoes still on the vine. Better tasted without water, there is a long finish with white chocolate and oloroso notes. A most venerable after-dinner malt.
