  2. helmutgw scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Quite fruity nose, restained but distinct sweet sherry. A hint of not integrated alcohol.

    More alcohol on the palate. Cereal and (cooked) fruity notes plus more unobtrusive sherry. Rather light body.

    Lenghy finish  but no development.

    Not exactly spectacular but an agreeable daily dram.

    Amazing complexity and a lot of pleasure in the mouth.
    • Nose
      a bit vinous, irremediably sherry, the firm side of the wood is pleasantly raised by sweet vanilla spice and the lightness of small acid spades. Rather round and engaging overall
    • Taste
      The attack is again typically sherry with chocolate, dried fruit, morello cherry but oh surprise! immediately gives way to a surprising citrus freshness (pink grapefruit?). A subtle equilibrium is then set up and goes back and forth between the seriousness of the sherry (to touches of fleeting wet cellar wood) and a bitterness in nuance. A very nice fight in the mouth.
    • Finish
      Bitter almond and raisin goes on for an intense finish
