  2. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    I quite liked the nose, but I didn’t particularly like the palate. Too coarse, too sample, too uneven. Kind of a common problem for me with may of these young sherry bombs.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    • Nose
      86 86
      Hazelnut paste, toffee, pear, fig, malt, peach, apple skin, banana, sweet & sour sauce, jute, bitter lemon and a very light grassy touch. A virgin oak-like spiciness through the sherry. 
    • Taste
      85 85
      Apple juice, toffee, blueberry, jute and again that virgin oak impression which takes the form of tree resin now.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Apple, peach, caramel and eventually a musty nuttiness.

  4. VWWW scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    What a great dram, only 5 years old and it is like it's sherry infused or mixed up with it. Tasted this one blind i thought it was nearly 15 or 20 years old. What a cask can do!
