  2. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Overall, the smoke is clear, but not overpowering for carrying. The Sherryfasseinfl├╝sse are rather manageable, but are noticeable. The alcohol has bite, but is justifiable. The overall picture is therefore actually consistent, even if the whisky is no real revelation.
    • Nose
      Spicy smoke, short citrus, a bit dusty. Liverwurst. Alcohol noticeably pungent in the nose. Vanilla and short rice pudding with cinnamon. Nutmeg. The more the alcohol evaporates, the more interesting and warmer the aromas are in the nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet smoke, ripe apples and pears, strong alcohol, a bit musty.
    • Finish
      Medium-length finish. Little bitterness, strong alcohol again, coffee

  3. hartist scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Rather for non-classic sherry lovers than real peat.
    • Nose
      For a bowmore, little peat and rather spices, honey and a reminiscence of candied oranges.
    • Taste
      Alcohol is well integrated; the peat is also discreet and we find the approach of the nose: spices, honey, oranges. All with a beautiful material.
    • Finish
      Long enough, on spices, and peat always discreet.
