  1. IceN scored this whisky 94 points Member Junior

    A simply wonderful, rare whisky.
    If you have the chance him relatively cheap, eg. To get on eBay, you just have to strike.

    An absolute bank & and currently still a "cheap" alternative to the 1 year older 1990-2007 year.

    • Nose
      Classic oloroso nose on dried oranges and raisins. Slightly smoked as well. Some pine wood, vanilla and honey. Hints of balsamico. A bit of mint.
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, quite oily. Lots of sherry again (prunes, datesâ€
    • Finish
      The finish is quite dry and nutty, with a wonderfully warm aftertaste on milk chocolate and fruit jam. Some smoke and spices as well.
