  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is an amazing dram. Bold, fruity with a gorgeous balance between
    sweet and sour flavours. Very powerful and already quite complex
    considering its youth. A goody for the sherry aficionado!

    • Nose
      There is a wonderful initial burst of alcohol which disappears quite
      rapidly and makes room for delicate sourish red currant along with a
      whiff of balsamic vinegar. This is followed by a rich sweetness of
      stewed dark fruits, cherries, grapes, and sultanas soaked in rum,
      perfectly supplemented by sherried X-mas cake, a touch of marzipan, and
      mixed spices.
    • Taste
      Oh boy, this is sweet on the palate with lots of stewed fruit, cherries -
      more the light red ones, and a delicate sourness caused by balsamic
      vinegar. Satisfying hints of oaky tannins emerge, complementing a
      lingering nuttiness. Very enjoyable and mouth-coating.
    • Finish
      Long and warm with a fruity sweetness and lingering marzipan and walnut notes. WITH WATER: Vibrant and prickling. Stays sweet with rum soaked cherries
      coated with dark chocolate, while delicate oak aromas develop in time.
      Superb.
