7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.88 points

  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    characteristic sherry, to the point that it looks like a ... Roofer !!
    a little leather, mold, macerated raisins, slightly cooked red and black fruits, pastry spices, malt well present.
    mouth:
    a bit of bitterness, well integrated alcohol, then well soaked wood that comes out
    then, the cooked and macerated fruit arrives, the spices still sweet, a little white pepper afterwards, the sensation of a slightly overdone fruit, not rotten, just before, which remains in a drawer; the leather chair, the cleaning lacquer on the sleeves, the wood in return, a little bitter almonds and sherry in common.
    final:
    marzipan, leather, candied and sweet red fruits for a monolithic but long finish.

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very very good, delicious even. I really like this kind of powerful sherry profile. Alcohol is perfectly integrated.
    • Nose
      Very perfumed nose , pastry chef. A mix of wood, dried and red fruits, brown sugar and sweet spices.
      A very addictive, intoxicating nose. Slightly sulfur, but in this case it's a plus.
    • Taste
      Sweet and sweet mouth , while being powerful. On dried fruits, sweet wood and exotic spices.
    • Finish
      Average on peppery spices, relayed by brown sugar.
