  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Already an ingeniously typical old school sherry malt, also very lively for its age, with personally just a tad too bitter.
    • Nose
      Hammer, looks more like 46%, still super lively, darkest, hearty toffee, dark honey, subtle red fruits, glazed, polished, old oak, brown sugar, very polished, elegant leather, hint of nutmeg and black pepper, dark, but still Milk chocolate, pickled plums
    • Taste
      Dark chocolate, noticeable oak, more than in the mouth, nicely polished and not dead bitter, but a bit too much for me, chocolate-coated plums, pencil lead, black pepper, nutmeg, dark honey, dates, lots of saffron, liquorice and aniseed
    • Finish
      Lots of polished oak, aniseed, liquorice, lead, nutmeg, dark chocolate, medium to long

    Yes most likely same whisky as the bottle with the purple writing, tobacco toffee, orange, herbs, candied fruits, oak, sherry wood, excellent

    Classic old style sherry wood! Of course very similar to the Millburn 1966 20yo Sestante in the regular bottle but the small difference may come mostly from a different bottle storage etc. Anyways great to drink!

      Toffee, old wooden cabinet, brown sugar, cigar tobacco, milk chocolate, dried fruits, plums, figs, dates, some crystallized oranges, whiffs of smoke, sherry wood, hints of acacia honey, some old books - great!

      Little punchy, coffee, old sherry wood, subtle sweetness, dried fruits, tobacco, hints of smoke and leather, sherry wood, spices, nutmeg, milk chocolate, some herbs - still great!
