    Much more complex than in my memories. Very nice.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Nose enough classic sherry.
      Red berries, camphor, light woody.
      We also have black pepper and milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very successful.
      Strawberry, blackcurrant, raspberry, licorice, leather and undergrowth.
      Beautiful complexity.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Animal finish on leather, musk and a touch of red fruits.

  2. tomy63 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    deep gold color, nose not very marked sherry, on vanilla, spices, malt, a little coconut, some red fruit in the background, quite young. Mouth a little more marked by sherry, slightly caramelized attack, quite lively for 43%, well integrated alcohol, thick texture, still a lot of cereals and vanilla, honey, some dried fruits. Average length, very spicy finish.

    Nose: Seductive and purely gorgeous. One of my top 3 sherry
    matured/finished malts for this year. Very alluring - or perhaps teasing
    with Ribena, Seville oranges, rich dark Christmas cake, grated coconut
    mixed with chopped cherry surrounded by dark chocolate, and rich runny
    honey. Then, hints of blueberry yogurt or is it boysenberry vanilla ice
    cream - both perhaps? Aromas continue to flourish with Pedro Ximenez
    sherry, cherry brandy with cola, and kirsch soaked raisins. Caramelized
    sugar is in plenty with vanilla confectionary, red toffee, and
    suggestions of apricots, sweet BBQ sauce, and nutmeg - definitely spurts
    of eggnog. A no-age with such complexity - I'm loving it!

    Silky and elegant. Blood orange slices glazed with spiced honey. Cherry
    brandy, kirsch, spicy fruit mince pies, Dr.Pepper soft drink, ginger
    bread, cinnamon strawberry jam and coconut in bitter chocolate. Just
    like the nose there is an abundant profile on the palate: liqueur soaked
    raisins, raspberry cordial, maple syrup, red jelly beans, red toffee,
    and Pedro Ximenez sherry.

    Finish: Relatively long on honey glazed blood orange peel, bitter chocolate and spiced cherry.
