  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 92 points Moderator

    My bottle had quite a haze which could be from the transportation. It's not going away thus I wonder how long it will take.
    Anyhow it is nevertheless very drinkable and enjoyable and pretty fresh which is amazing for the age of 45 years old. Great!

      Intense sherry notes, raisins, nutty, cloves, hints of fresh rubber - really not bad
    • Taste
      93 93
      Punchy, sirupy, fruity, citrusy, subtle sweetness, cooked oranges, jam, good oak wood, peppery - very good

    Aroma:
    Fruit Christmas cake, some sherry, raisins, brown sugar, spices a hint of orange peel, some wood

    Taste:
    Soft, sweetish, slightly spicy, balanced, very complex

    finish:
    warm, with spices, a touch of sherry, slightly sweetish and soft finish. Very, very long ...

    Conclusion: a grenade!
