  2. DenisL scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Balance sheet (22) 89-for perversion and pressure. Definitely, it's not for everyone ... But there is a spark in it and I like how it excites consciousness
    • Nose
      Very energetically ... rotten fruit in sulfuric glaze
    • Taste
      Taste of wine, sweetly spicy ... raspberry jam ... pepper ... (22)
    • Finish
      Finish sweet ... fruit salad with cream ... bitterness of the wine bone ... oak ... cognac motifs ... wet skin ... walnut ... paraffin (22)

  6. T.Norad did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Here you can see the difference to an Oloroso whisky.
    Ximenez is much sweeter.

    With barrel strength, the high alcohol content is not noticeable when trying.
    • Nose
      red wine sherry Raisins in rum raisin chocolate slight solvents (at barrel strength) Butter Almond Cookies easily herbs packed brown sugar cooling mint thyme
    • Taste
      strong sweet sherry notes plum sauce Fruit compote with cherries cloves thyme honey chocolate raisins caramel vanilla
      clove
    • Finish
      long for chocolate and cocoa
