  1. grinface scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    I don't know what's not to like here. An impressive sherry maturation. At the same time mild and round as well as complex and deep. I don't know whether the distillery character still there. I lack the experience for that. Regardless, this is really tasty.

    • Nose
      90 90
      Sugar-sweet baked apples straight from the oven. With cinnamon, syrup and honey. This is slowly turning into a cake. There's also balsamic vinegar and some soy sauce. Both rather mild. Then it becomes dry, almost even a bit smoky. In the direction of freshly blown out candle and a stack of papers. After a few minutes of breathing it then goes more towards sherry.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Spicy sherry, plus a little plum wine. It is nice and sweet, with a copper penny in between. Then it goes towards tobacco and old woods. Everything is very round and harmonious.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Berries boiled in soy sauce. Then it gets spicy again, a little ginger comes through. The metal is back. Some coke then gives the start for the finale. Dark chocolate, leather and coffee. A lot of depth but at the same time it is restraint. It becomes dry, too. With a little air it becomes quite bitter. If you don't like it, that's a single small negative point.
