  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Whisky rather successful, a little young but well done. a dry sherry, a little meaty nose, and more fruity in the mouth.
    • Nose
      Nose quite lively, wild, on alcohol, pretty animal, leather, traces of plum. A little charcoal. not an easy sherry.
    • Taste
      Mouth more interesting, on dried fruits currants, plum, alcohol rather well integrated. Pretty sweet, fluid texture, little fat. Vegetable tip.
    • Finish
      Currants, plum, a little marc. Pretty nice.

  2. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    the need of water, and 6 months in the open bottle, then it's really delicious
    • Nose
      Sherrynase, rather dry. Raisins, caramel, orange, dark fruits, nutty. Slight spiciness
    • Taste
      strong, first sweet, then the oak, nuts, candied orange, caramel. Chocolate, so with 50% cocoa.
    • Finish
      with water pleasant finish. It remains a sweet and sour taste, with nut chocolate and a little oak flavor

  4. maltaholic scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Not a bad malt, but almost too strong for me.
    • Nose
      Very dominant Sherry, paired with alcoholic nose. The details then rather spicy.
    • Taste
      Very strong onset - clear, with the percentages - but a very pleasant, fruity taste. Some clove, oak, vanilla.
    • Finish
      Long, fruity finish.

  5. Othorion scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Was a blindsample
    • Nose
      classic sherry nose, slightly pungent alcohol, plum jam with cinnamon, raisins, menthol, followed by mirabelle plums and sweet apples, tobacco box
    • Taste
      spicy, peppery, chili, prunes and pipe tobacco, the alcohol is not perfectly integrated, it needs water! Not as sweet as the nose with water: oak, slightly bitter coffee, black pepper, nutmeg, prunes, much more harmonious
    • Finish
      long, warming, bitter oak, espresso, black pepper

  6. André scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Strong, sherry, cocoa, coffee bean, nuts, tobacco, dried fruits, raisins
    • Taste
      Strong, intense, hot, oily, lacquer finish, tobacco, leather, spray cream, spicy-sweet
    • Finish
      Lang

  10. Magnus Hillman did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Rather Juicy and palatable whisky. Not as good as the 16 years old bourbon matured Nadurra that is now discontinued but still a good combination of fruits with orange, raisins and red apples, spices with cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg and good interaction between wood and spirit.

    I was not particularly impressed when I had the Oloroso Nadurra the first and second time but after tasting this one blind, I had to change my mind. I was actually convinced that it was a Glen Garioch sherry cask, 10-12 years old. However, it is possible that the improvement is a result of batch variation which is more common in NAS releases in my opinion. The same applies for Aberlour A’bunadh for example, but was never the case with the 16 year old Nadurra. Still, I was impressed by this one.

    Rating interval 85-88
    • Nose
      Sweet on the nose with raisins and red apples, malt and spicy cinnamon, black pepper, bitter orange, orange candy (Tic Tac's or PEZ). Orange and pepper move forward with water, sultana and dried apricot also emerge.
    • Taste
      A hint of smoke (not peat smoke, but wood smoke) in the sour-/bitter arrival with lemon juice, malt sugar, mineral and table salt at the front of the tongue. It becomes oily and creamy after a few seconds on the development, spices as pepper and nutmeg are coming forward on the tongue as the sweetness at the same time are moving back. Overall it is not as sweet as expected from the nose in neither the arrival nor in the development. More spices become noticeable but difficult to identify separately. Water brings forward some of the sweetness again and suppress the spices with the exception of black pepper which is still very enhanced. 
    • Finish
      The spices continue into the finish with nutmeg and slightly bitter oak, again orange but dried orange this time. The finish is medium in length but warm and comfortable. Juicy raisins and prunes are absolutely there as well.
