  1. markfeit scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    brown sugar nose, well balanced sipper. light color, likely a refill butt. A really nice dram. Nothing special, but solid.

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Super sipping whisky for the evening, certainly not the world to discover but has 0 miss notes for me and is great balanced.
    • Nose
      Nice oldschool, nice malt, some hops even, dry chocolate sprinkles, tannins and round oak chips, dried apricots with seeds, toffee, dark honey, hint of heather meadow and a little something burned, almonds / chestnuts, a little yellow plums
    • Taste
      Sparkling start for 46%, the yellow plums, apricots with kernel, brown sugar, beautiful tannins, a lot of dark malt, beautiful oak, hops, slightly burnt caramel, dark honey, rosemary and oregano, heath meadow, bitter chocolate grated
    • Finish
      Dry-sweet, malt, tannins, brown sugar and dried fruit, nice mixture of the astringent and really jelly-like sweetness that stays long, medium long in total

    nothing I would buy but still a good dram for fans of not so sweet sherry whiskies
    • Nose
      very malty , lots of chocolate and caramel, really very dark in its profile.
      strong sherry aromas of dried fruit (sultanas and dates), some sulphur but not disturbing.
    • Taste
      same as on the nose, strong attack, creamy mouthfeel. drying quite quickly. very much on dark chocolate now.
    • Finish
      long, dry, spicy

  5. mrgood scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    BBQed peaches wrapped in a caramel popcorn ball. Nice chocolate pudding.  Bit sulphery on the finish.

  6. Korre scored this whisky 67 points Expert Junior
