    Very in my taste!
    • Nose
      The whole palette of sweet dried fruit (plums, cherries, gooseberries, currants, pears), hazelnuts, the smell of cakes soaked in liqueur.
    • Taste
      Very sweet and fruity, but also slightly bitter, raisins, prunes and dark chocolate dominate. Despite the high ABV alcohol does not kill the taste of whisky.
    • Finish
      Pleasant long, very sweet and fruity.

    Too bad the mouth is so syrupy. Too much for me. The nose and the final are clearly several notches above.
    • Nose
      Gros very fruity sherry: dried fruits (raisins, preuneau, apricot) and macerated fruits (cherry). It's fresh and an alcoholic hair. There are also some nuts and caramel that both become more and more present over time.
    • Taste
      Wah! What is it ? Extremely creamy and syrupy, it's more than sweet. Really extreme. Syrup for the throat? Cane sugar, dried figs, fudge caramel, lots of caramel. Wood is more present than nose, spices too.
    • Finish
      Very long. Quite intense, very spicy and fresh at the same time. The wood is present and it ends on a slight drought, but very pleasant.

    sergeColour: deep amber. Nose: a drier, less rounded and less fruity version of a
    middle-aged sherry monster. I also find more cognac, rancio, walnuts, shoe
    polish, aniseed, old armagnac, chocolate cake, cigars… In short, love this. Was
    that fast enough? Mouth: a big and sharp sherry monster, full of dried fruits.
    More dried fruits than in a fruitcake ;-). No sulphur in this one. Develops on
    orange liqueurs, a little tar (no, no sulphur) and drops of Schweppes yet again.
    Finish: long, rich, on black raisins and black pepper. Oranges again in the
    aftertaste. Zests. A drop of orange blossom water. Comments: what can I say,
    this is just excellent. Close to the OB.


  8. Falnor scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I seem to agree that the nose is the most impressive part.
    • Nose
      Lots of aromas fill the air when opening the bottle. A full range of trail mix; so all kinds of nuts and raisins. Lovely dry walnuts, white sweet grapes, dried cranberry. Gets more creamy and chocolate flavoured. Spongecake with a chocolate hazelnut paste.
    • Taste
      Warm almonds with grapefruit. Skin of a walnut and cacao. It seems to balance and switch between sweet and bitter. Whipped cream and lime. Spices emerge like cardamon, white peper and ginger. Conserved cherries.
    • Finish
      Bittersweet dried fruits, sultanas and chocolate mousse. Full bodied and warming, but less complex in the end.

  9. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    I was especially
    impressed with the nose. Just under 80 EUR.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully sweet and
      creamy nose. Cuberdons, yellow raisins, butterscotch and a basket full of nuts.
      Milk chocolate. Hint of leather. Baked apples. Make that apfelstrüdel. Rice
      pudding? Yes, this is bulls eye!
    • Taste
      It is very cream and
      nicely warm on the palate, because of the spices. Again, pretty sweet. Stewed
      prunes, but also roasted chestnuts that give it a discrete bitter edge. A hint
      of rubber, but honey, sherry and pear syrup keep it on the straight path. No
      water needed.
    • Finish
      The finish is long
      and honeysweet, allowing the spices the final word.

    Real good. Neat best for me, but maybe you like this chili notes water will add to it?
    • Nose
      Raisins & nuts. Dark Sherry.
    • Taste
      Body: Very creamy, adherent, warming.

      Palate: Very Sweet. Stewed figs, dates and chestnut honey with it's sweet, but also bitter notes.

      Water will make it a bit smoother, but sharper at the same time. No new notes.
    • Finish
      Long. Bitter, but still very sweet and nutty. Some oaky notes.
