  5. Gearmailteach did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A wonderful dram between smoke, sweetness and spices.
    • Nose
      Pleasant camp fire smoke, sweet dark fruits, mint. After Eight and Mon Cherie. Oak spice, dark chocolate and sherry, honey and caramel .... great nose.
    • Taste
      Pleasantly smoky-oily. Sweet again with honey, dark fruit and chocolate. Then smoke, oak, some ashes, dark chocolate, leather.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky with some tobacco, chocolate and oak.

  6. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    First thought is that I like this much more than the 12 years. Balance is better, wood influence is in check, and finish is nicely rounded.

  8. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This is the cardbox version instead of the somewhat earlier version that comes in a tube. Taste wise this one is less sherried and not so full of flavour. An obvious decline in quality compared to the "tube" version. Still an enjoyable dram.

    Nose: Smoky in the beginning, but the smoke fades quickly and gives way to sweet dark fruits and the general creamy aroma. Sherry, chocolate and light wood. Taste: First smoke and wood, then sweet and creamy. Some alcoholic sharpness. finish: Soft, medium, sweet and mild. Also here nice sherry.
    TOP! Definitely get a place on the shelf from me.

  10. Andytka3 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    N- Raisin, berries and herbal notes. Mint chocolate behind the musky and pungent sherry wood notes.

    P- Leathery with refine sherry influence, sweet and sour berries.

    F- Medium-long. Creamy and smooth. Peppery and cinnamon smokes with gentle spiciness. Hints of cocoa.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
