  1. Carlos scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    A nice but strong dram that gains by adding water.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Nice Sherry notes, fruity (maybe apples?) and oaky spiciness. Very nice on the nose but strong (you definitely get the 53.5% in your nose).
    • Taste
      88 88
      The impressions from the nose are confirmed on the palate: Sherry (a little less as we had in the nose), spiciness from the oak, fruity (again: apples?), barley sweetness. This single malt is very powerful, close to be overwhelming. A nice dram that gains by adding water.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium to long finish and again the spices from the oak, fruitiness, sherry notes.
