  1. wncvirus scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Sherry, chocolate, forest fruits, cherries
    Taste: A nicely folded whisky with deep notes dominating sherry with the addition of light spices. In the next approaches you can feel chocolate,
    Rating: 88 | 100 Finish quite strong with a sherry profile with the addition of black pepper.

    This is a great sherry bomb. I tasted a 2cl glass and experimented with water.

    After adding 3 drops of water, the pepper, alcohol and glue stepped forward. Not really pleasant.

    Another 3 drops of water made the dram sweeter, the unpleasant aromas stepped back, but were still stronger than undiluted.

    Another three drops of water made the dram really smooth, mellow, sweet and really kicked in the sherry, but lost on the spices and malty aromas.

    I prefer this dram neat.
    • Nose
      Plums, red grapes, "Rote Grütze", hints of glue
    • Taste
      again red fruit, sherry, malted barley, oranges, cloves and maybe a hint of cinnamon, Lebkuchen
    • Finish
      Long finish. The malty sweetness stays long and evolves to treacle, dark chocolate and hints black pepper.

    Needs some drops of water, because the strength of alcohol is very present initially.
