  4. vredensever scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is dense, sherry: sodden dried fruits, compote, marmalade, licorice, red oranges, oil, spices, chocolate cake, old tree, humus, smoked and smoke. The taste is sweet, sherry: a lot of spices led by hot pepper, mountains of dried fruits, toffee, muffins, astringent oak in berry syrup. The aftertaste is long and even: astringent oak, prunes, lightest notes of smoke and smoked products. The development is more dry, oak-smoked. Conclusion . Cool sherry Springbank. Sweet, sharp, not boring. Sacred sweetness prevails, but gives the word to a noble oak in the frame of smoky and smoked notes. It develops well with time. Rating: 90 (n23t22f22b23).

    • Nose
      Nuts oily a typical Springbank, a nose full of sherry, raspberries, tobacco, a hint of salt
    • Taste
      orange, honey, dried apricots little hint of oak
    • Finish
      slightly more oak, spices, a long finish, honey again then more oak in the end

  7. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Peaches, orange, syrup, pepper, a touch of sulpher, cake baking mix and forest fruits - cassis.
    • Taste
      Dates, orange, some raisins and forest fruits, coffee and some smoke.
    • Finish
      Dates, figs, pepper and liquorice.

  9. Falk Malt scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The Sherry clearly has the upper Hand here, but the finish is a real Highlight. If you like heavily sherried Malts with a dry finish, go for this one. Still available.
    • Nose
      On the nose zhere is a huge cloud of Sherry. The Label only states that it's a Sherry butt. There are oily aromas sugared almonds, butter, Bacon and Tobacco. With water it gets much sweeter. Allspice and cardamom lurking through.
    • Taste
      The palate is spicy and sweet.
    • Finish
      The finish is beautifully dry and Long.

  10. Alexthunder scored this whisky 89 points Member Junior

    For Sherry Butt friends absolutely top
    • Nose
      strong, strong
    • Taste
      very intense sherry note,
    • Finish
      quite a long pleasant reverberation
