  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    a great, quite wild Sherrymalt.
    • Nose
      Toffee, fruits, smells a little younger again, sherry in the background, becoming more present over time. Interestingly, also cereals. These toffee and sherry noses are always delicious.
    • Taste
      clear sherry now, slightly vinous, astringent, slight sulfur, but all right.
    • Finish
      Toffee, milk chocolate, some menthol from the oak and some raisins.

  4. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very good malt, but I miss something.
    • Nose
      Sherry. Raisins. Grape nut chocolate. Plum compote with cinnamon. The oak also tickles from time to time.
    • Taste
      Sherry. Pretty sweet at first. Caramel and honey. Then rum raisins. Now some citrus fruit. Immediately followed by oak. Chocolate. White coffee.
    • Finish
      Forest honey. dried plums. Oak.

      Smooth and medium long with honey and raisins

  7. Albaron scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Very nice aroma, very fruity, looks a bit young, but has a very pleasant sherry aroma

    As part of a blind tasting tasted.
    • Nose
      Sherry, fig, apricot, some alcohol, more dried fruit, very fruity
    • Taste
      Sherry, here clear alcohol, also here figs and apricots, the nose is good here again, no tannins, will probably be quite young
    • Finish
      Here are a few tannins from the oak, but very weak, the sherry remains

      Sweet, fruity, chocolate, coffee, plum
    • Finish
      medium-long, spicy

  10. Gloin scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The drop formation after a drinking strength. Unfortunately, the palate loses and the finish opposite the nose, which is fantastic. Especially the departure is relatively meaningless
    • Nose
      Sherry! No alcohol, grapes, raisins, cinnamon, chocolate and ... sherry! Behind it lies a slightly dryness and the spice of the oak. An almost classic nose of a sherry whisky
    • Taste
      Gentle start, sherry, but not as intense as in the nose, but again very classic, raisins, chocolate, coffee
    • Finish
      The finish shows bittersweet oak, raisins covered in dark chocolate, medium long
