    On the nose, characteristic smell of sherry, then scents of rum and bourbon!
    2nd:
    rum molasses for sure, there must be a lot of grain in it, otherwise, vanilla, caramel, dried fruit dried, a little mold and wood.

    This is a drop, which I wish for the bar in heaven, whereby the magic potion does not overburden the certainly not too richly endowed cash register of Peter at the same time.
    • Nose
      First, I want to find out the Fassart: But first comes apple, slightly leathery umflort, then rise bitered apple seeds and a colorful and fresh fruit mix. But back to the barrels used: definitely the finest sherry, but also vanilla from bourbon barrels. But that is really a successful mixture! Very fine barrels!
    • Taste
      Syrupy, full-bodied, spicy. What more do you want?
    • Finish
      And everything condenses in the finish something, without any share would gain the upper hand. Slightly salty (like with a splash of sea water) and peppery.

    Nose:

    Fresh wood, American oak vanilla, wood shavings, graphite, tobacco sour note, glue, engine oil, dark bitter cold Earl Gray tea, lavender, rosemary and citrus.

    Taste:

    Again lots of wood, licorice, vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar, sandal wood. In the development some nutmeg and very nice tannins.

    Finish.

    Nice and long, with a leather note, wood tannins and caramel sweetnes.

    Very very nice...

  10. p4blo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A really good dram for the price and highly drinkable at the full strength.
    • Nose
      Deep notes of sherry, caramel, almonds, cherry liqueur, liquid chocolate, orange zest. Notes of good old cognac.
    • Taste
      Very chocolatey, sweet, deep and rich. Orange zest, all kinds of berries. A heavy sherry cask influence, but it worked really well with the character of the spirit.
    • Finish
      Quite long, mouthwarming, notes of chocolate and gentle fruitiness appear again. Towards the end, it feels slightly spirity and young, but it's acceptable here.
