  1. tangtang scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    it's perfectly alright. But it didn't convince me like the miniature of the 18 year old. But can be due to the bottling.
    this one is extremely sherry-heavy, which seems partly put on. other flavors are too much in the background.

  2. Myke scored this whisky 98 points Expert Senior

    A multi-layered whisky with a strong sherry aroma, which looks very set.
    • Nose
      99 99
      typical sherry note with a heavy dark fruit aroma and sweetness. Raisins and ripe plums. The sweet orange also comes through beautifully and an oak spice aroma.
    • Taste
      95 95
      intense sherry aroma with raisins, plums and an oak spice in the direction of nutmeg and a little sweetness. Then there is a dark (bitter) chocolate, which, however, is not as strong as in the 18er.
    • Finish
      99 99
      long-lasting oak flavor. The dark chocolate, along with an espresso ristretto aroma, is retained for a long time. Dark dried fruit also remains on the tongue for a long time.

  5. Kaleva scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful whisky, very pleasant and well balanced with a beautiful touch of smoke (you need time to recognize it). Easy gong on its full strengths. Not very complex though but great in every sip. Quite hard to find nowadays and prices seem to be going up.
    • Nose
      Sherry, dried fruits, chocolate, barley notes, baked apples, cinnamon, orange zest, maple syrup, almost insensible smoky notes, water opens overripe fruity notes - apples and pears
    • Taste
      Sweet, spicy (nutmeg), gentle burned oak, dried cherries, caramel, butter cookies, nuts (pecan), light rubbery notes
    • Finish
      Rather long, sweet, slowly drying, nuts and Christmas spices

  6. FuturePerfect scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    For 21 years, not a particularly complex, but balanced and pleasant sherry whisky, for me, however, the 12-year old same distillery offers little added value.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Clear sherry (very spicy to nutty, sweetness quite dark and set, raisins, dates, dark fruit compote with very light vanilla), notes of hay and cereals as well as cinnamon sugar. Somehow the sweetness reminds in places of sticky and artificial solvent notes of many bourbon whiskys.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pleasant sherry, clear oak, but always relatively balanced. Alcohol well integrated. Warming, slightly sweet.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A slight chewing gum sweetness remains

  7. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Repeats much worse quality in original miniature with normal level than in a large bottle of the same vintage.

  10. Astrid scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Top! The price increase of recent years is - with a laughing and a crying eye - understandable. Who has the opportunity: Access!
    • Nose
      a lot of sherry, then sometime oak, sweet with different dried fruits - such as dried dates, then spreads an excellent spice together with orange zest, freshly baked bread with nutmeg, ripe oranges with cloves and cinnamon, strong caramel, some resinous cedar, a lot of vanilla, Plum compote, raisins, blackberries, liqueur blackcurrants, remains of peat smoke, cherry blossoms, slightly nutty, removes sulfur notes, very complex and interwoven
    • Taste
      very old and full-bodied sherry, slightly spicy, very sweet, then pushes the spice vigorously, behind hides oak, caramel, dried dates, prunes, raisin syrup, pickled cherries, a lot of cinnamon, light acidity and bitterness of espresso and chocolate, a little walnut shell , Vanilla, minimal smoke, the alcohol is wonderfully integrated
    • Finish
      warm, oak, a lot of dark sherry, some spiciness and malt, many dried fruits, caramel, cinnamon and nutmeg, later a hint of pepper, apple schnapps, salty, semi-dry and long
