  1. VWWW scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I found this bottle in the summer of 2016 as part of an old collection and the seal was broken. Curious for the nose i opened it and i was blown away by the smell... 

    A few days later i've tasted it with one of my whisky-mates and it made both of us very happy. Don't know if they used colouring at the time, but you can easily recognise the sherry-influence in this whisky. 8y old may not seem a lot but the casks they used to create this blend had to be realy active! A warming, spicy, powerful whisky with a long lingering taste, not peaty but it has a little smoke, tobacco. Such a great dram!

    Lucky, the bottle is not badly preserved. The Old Botlig effect is there but disappears quickly. Very tasty whiskey, what's inside? (86)
