4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.15 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very pleasant sherry molt, the basics can not be seen, the sherry derivatives are very calm and temperate, the depth and complexity correspond to the exposure, excellent balance, good fortress.
    • Nose
      An open, wet, moist barrel, raisins, furniture varnish, moist pipe tobacco, a cigar box, cinnamon, lemon peel, sandalwood, earth notes, ink, prunes, some tropical fruits.
    • Taste
      Saturated, dry-fruit, moderately sweet, dried mushrooms, raisins, prunes; burnt biscuits.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, burnt rusks, burnt caramel, porter, prunes.

    • Nose
      Apple strudel with vanilla sauce. Yellow raisins, caramel cream, a trace of candle wax. Cereals, cornflakes, apple blossoms.
    • Taste
      Oily, slightly peppery. Orange marmalade, some wax. Almonds, hazelnuts, milk chocolate, nougat.

  3. Cubey666 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    nose: mocha, milk chocolate, latte macchiato and sawdust. pinetree christmas spray. Waxy and creamy. some cooked red fruits.

    taste: a lot more fruity than the nose suggested. dark bitter chocolate, some meaty spicy sausages.

    finish: medium long and a bit bitter

  4. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    a rather harmless on the nose, but on the palate edged Speysider. Very intense, and extraordinary!
    • Nose
      intense, but not zugekleistertes sherry bouquet, clear chocolate, clear raisins, but also fresh peppermint, orange, apple, pear.
    • Taste
      fresh, light fruit in the beginning, but then a decent bitter chocolate and oak cargo behind, suddenly really impetuous and evil. But not in the bad sense. He can do something, you just have to be in the mood. Later meaty barbecue, salami?
    • Finish
      long, oily, bitter and sweet. hot!
