  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 85 points Moderator

    Starts pretty OK but there is this little touch of sulphur in the end that is not to my liking
    • Nose
      86 86
      Lot of sherry notes, vino santo, raisins, dried fruits, hints of leather, spices, cloves, little cinnamon, wet tobacco, hints of rum
    • Taste
      87 87
      Punchy, liquorice, subtle sweetness, more raisins and rum notes, fresh sherry, spices, little more leathery notes
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long, warm, spicy, little tannic, touch of sulphur, a tad bitter

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Great old style sherry! Tobacco, leather, orange, espresso, chocolate, toffee, excellent

  3. Snerik scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    This whisky is a real pleasure to drink! 
    • Nose
      Oooh, sherry! Matches, figs, dates, chocolate, leather, and some blackberries (!). Some wet cellar. Come to think of it, this resembles some really nice cabernet. And cacao! 
    • Taste
      Big, strong and here comes the sherry notes. But in a very pleasant way. Matches and figs for everyone! 
    • Finish
      What a finfish! Long, savoury, challenging, big and engaging. I just can’t help it, that mix of burnt matches and dark chocolate is a winner in my book. And in the end there’s that wonderful blackberry note again.
