    An absolutely beautiful dress.

    An absolutely magnificent Sherry. Rare precision and finesse. Despite the power, we have a perfectly balanced dram.

      93 93
      What a nose! Not at all aggressive despite the 62%.
      Orange, light grapefruit? Original.
      Wood, dark chocolate and milk chocolate.
      Licorice, cocoa beans, pepper, cloves.
      Black tea, caramel, vanilla. Very light camphor.
    • Taste
      92 92
      In the mouth it evolves on the red fruit. Gooseberry at the head. And the black fruit: blackcurrant, blackberry jam.
      Wood is always present, noble, waxed.
      Caramel, vanilla, cinnamon, pepper. Leather.
      Slight smoke.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long finish on soft caramel. Red and black fruit jam, cooked in a cauldron. Licorice and molasses. Light veil of peat, dry grass.

    The aroma is very powerful: the mountains of dried fruits, resin, wood, bright spices, a little bit of chemist's minerality, chocolate sweets, thick burnt plum jam, dried herbs, tea, tobacco, smoke, smoked, dark chocolate, toasted seeds or kozinak, light wine note. The taste is sweet, bright: dark chocolate, boiled condensed milk, sugar candies, spices (vanilla, hot pepper), burnt sugar, smoked products, dark honey with bitter taste, smoke, lapsang-suhong tea, astringent oak. With a drop of water to become softer and drier, the bitterness intensifies. The aftertaste is moderately sweet, smoked, smoky, astringent, long. Conclusion . The type of barrel is not specified, but, it seems to me that without sherry influence there could not have been. Mighty, noble whisky. Terrific rich and diverse. A noticeable smoke-smoked note simply envelops. This is not an Aylov smoked style, it is an original phenomenon. It does not look like anything! Very cool! Rating: 96 (n24t24f24b24)

    A perfect combination between spices (cinnamon, clove, star anise, ginger), fruits (orange, tangerine, red fruits) and peat (not smoke).Very close to his big brother (#129374).
