  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Another excellent 72, great sherry and tropical notes maybe the wood is a bit more present and drying than other editions

    Incredible nosing. Rich and complex, with salt & caramel pop-corn; sweet and sour fruitiness reminds me of passion fruit; elegant and refined leather.

    • Nose
      93 93
      Quite juicy. Lots of fruits. Cherries galore. Coffee grounds. Leather and licorice. Milk chocolates. Some oak. And finally, mint. Not absolutely fruity bonkers like old Macallans or old Bowmores, but damn fruity enough and this has depth and complexity.

      Great stuff, for sure. Doesn't reach the pantheon of sherried whiskies, but it's damn close. Minus 1 for being dry throughout. Minus another 1 point for not being super viscous (ie sticks to the palate). Ok, so 93 points.

      Dry finish. Coffee grounds. Cherry cough syrup. This is dry and oaky, which means it doesn't reach legendary status in my book.

    Very flamboyant, energetic character. In addition to raisins and dried cranberries, it has rich sweet orange, high-quality old oak and Earl milk tea, which is very rich. Tasting: Like a symphony of waves and ranks, from plain to magnificent, it was slightly sweet at first, and soon burst into various dark fruits, including prunes, raisins, chocolate, sherry The taste, with a bit of lime and a bit of oak, is not excessive and perfectly balanced. Aftertaste: long, raisins, oranges and coffee
