4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.15 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Already a great part, too crass sherry and strength for everyday life, but a great thing for special occasions!
    • Nose
      Orange bitters, apple chips, cherries, vanilla and dark chocolate, chocolates and deep dark honey, hazelnut, figs
    • Taste
      Haselnuss again, good tannins to feel, Almond cherries, bitter orange, grapefruit, nutmeg, some black pepper, dark malt, nice sweet bitters, leather
    • Finish
      Mon Cheri, back oak, astringent, not Japanese, grapefruit peel and blood orange, long

    Good start but the ending is unfortunately not the desired one (hints of sulphur) - still OK
    • Nose
      Intense, dried fruits, figs, dates, nuts & toffee - great sherry nose
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, dried fruits again, good woody notes, subtle sweetness, more toffee and milk chocolate
    • Finish
      Medium short, warm, becoming more flat and leathery - too bad
