  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Good value for money.
    • Nose
      Toffee, red apples, Dutch appelstroop, caramel, pear drops, honey, beeswax, roasted nuts, later more on dried fruits with some oloroso acidity. 
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, punchy, with a good balance of sweet, sour and bitter. First on caramel and marzipan, later on dried fruits, lemon zest, hay and ginger. 
    • Finish
      A lovely kick of pepper, banana skin, along with dried fruits, marzipan and green herbs.

  2. Koning scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A bit closed, needs some time and water. Expect no sherry bomb, it's more on refill hogsheads

      Hot for alcohol. Sherry and malt. The sharpness goes away a little with water, but not much better either.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sherry and malt. A little one-dimensional. However, the taste wins from the water and becomes rounder.
    • Finish
      79 79
      Malty and spicy with pepper

  6. Kaleva scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Rather good whisky. The nose at the beginning is sour and kind of unpleasant due to noticeable sulfur notes but after staying some while in the glass those unpleasant notes disappear. It has some complexity and releases new aromas with water but also going quite smoothly on its full strength.
    • Nose
      Malt, sulfur notes, lemon cake, butterscotch, toffee, dark berries, yellow pear, vanilla, dusty wood, nutmeg, soft oak, pear candies after adding water
    • Taste
      Sweet, green apple, oranges, spices (pepper mix), yellow raisins, toffee, a touch of mint, soft and slightly bitter oak, orange zest
    • Finish
      Medium-long, sweet, dry, nutty and slightly oaky with choco notes

  7. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion: powerful, bright, a little rough, but, most importantly, very tasty whisky. This sherry monster. Cool copy! I regret not having bought 2 bottles!
    Rating: 88 (n22, t121, f22, b23)
    • Nose
      The aroma can be traced shades of prunes, dates, figs, honey and ground hazelnuts. In the distance - spices, old skin, dried tobacco leaves and a subtle note of the barnyard, with all the ingredients.
    • Taste
      Pinching taste (58.9%), with nuances of dried fruit, spicy spices and berry jam, with a strong oak effect.
    • Finish
      Aftertaste: rather long, pleasantly burning, sweet, berry, with spices and high content of tannins and sherry echoes, with a cigar flavor.

  8. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A worthy representative of the young and strong, a good replacement for the old, barrel fortress, 12-year-old, balance, pitches, the charm of youth - everything is in place, although it turned out to be more victorious and more straightforward.
    • Nose
      Fresh, juicy, mineral tones, wet pebbles, fresh masonry mortar; lemon, light floral notes, malt, wet grain.
    • Taste
        Saturated, sweet-oak, soft peppery wave, creamy notes, boiled condensed milk, fondant, plenty of oak.
    • Finish
      Continuation of taste, creamy sweetness and spicy oak in a frame of ginger and crusts of orange and grapefruit.
