    Amazing whisky, if i had to compare, i would say it's like the Glendronach 21 only better. The development of smell and flavour is more interesting
    • Nose
      91 91
      A "old" sherry nose, It starts of with deep and dark sherry notes. Smells like a antique shop filled to the brim with raisins and dried fruits. Some hints of orange, vanilla and a subtle meaty note start showing up after some time in the glass .
    • Taste
      91 91
      The taste is slightly fruitier than the nose. Plums and dried figs join the notes found on the nose, some oaky notes on the end of the taste development. After opening up a meaty note that combines really well with the sherry comes to the fore
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is long, oily, dry and there is still some red fruit after all the dryness.
      Love me a fruity dry finish

  10. MrRancho scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Excellent! Sherry bomb that fully meets these expectations. Beautifully balanced between sweetness and wood.
    • Nose
      very dense, voluminous and complex with dried fruit: raisins / plums, vanilla, oak, orange, slightly minty
    • Taste
      just like the smell
    • Finish
      just
