  1. aphex scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The nose was great. I loved how the Pu-erh and sherry flavors mixed. The mouth was less interesting at first but the end of the glass was better, catching the nose. Overall a very good whisky.
    • Nose
      Dark fruits, red berries, raisins, gingerbread. With aeration, fresh vegetal and earthy notes, Pu-erh.
    • Taste
      Bitter attack. Oranges, chocolate, gingerbread. With time, less bitter and a nice sweetness appears with red berries notes.
    • Finish
      Medium, oaky, orangey notes, drying.

    A very big and dark chocolate aged bunna. If you like dark sherry this your dram.

  10. Bishlouk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I must admit to being a bit disappointed. After waiting so long to taste it, and seeing the ratings on WB I was expecting better.
    It is nevertheless a good whisky well done, but there is a way to find better, younger, for less.
    • Nose
      A freshness of aniseed grass (near a virgin oak) strikes me in the foreground; coated with a standard sherry profile (coffee bean, leather, spices, tobacco, black tea, gingerbread, red and black fruits).
    • Taste
      Mouth quite bitter and that might seem reduced; it lacks a little power.
      Bitter orange, black tobacco. A fairly standard sherry mouth.
    • Finish
      Average final.
      Sweet peppery spices tickle the tip of the tongue, while a woody drought attacks the cheeks.
