    One of their better expressions - and the darkest in colour of the ones I have tried.
    • Nose
      A strong smell of sherry but slightly lost due to the high level of alcohol.
    • Taste
      One of the nicest expressions so far - the sherry really adds a depth of flavour, but also a smoothness that is lacking in some of the other bottlings.
    • Finish
      Another long finish - very pleasant

  8. JohannesB scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A true sherry monster with everything that goes with it. The short years of maturation in the heat of Taiwan are truly impressive. This whisky is on a par with the best Scottish sherry barrel whiskys, which usually require well over 20 years of maturation for this quality. Absolute buy recommendation!
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring a very dark, heavy and aromatic smell with a lot of sherry flows out of the glass. Dry Oloroso Sherry, more fruity than sweet. Lots of aromatic wood, pipe tobacco, blackberries, raisins, cherries, dark chocolate. Like Black Forest cake with a strong coffee. Later, Christmas spices are added: cinnamon sticks, gingerbread spice, orange peel and cloves.
    • Taste
      Extremely much sherry also in the taste. Now also very sweet, the dryness from the aroma is no longer felt. Overripe blackcurrants, plums, walnuts and candy sugar. Strong oak tannins are also present, but do not overlap the sherry, they alternate well with the fruit flavors,
    • Finish
      Lots of wood and spices stay in the mouth for a long time. Espresso dark chocolate, caramel, cinnamon and all sorts of red fruit that flashes on the cheeks again and again. Strong salivation.

    Sherry much?
    • Nose
      Sherry bomb of the highest order, smells like an Olrosso. Dry sherry wood. Sherry funk. Fresh red fruits. Raisins. Bit of coffee. Some jammy notes. Bit of sherry gunpowder. 
    • Taste
      Superglue. Rich red fruits. Dry wood. Nutty Olrosso notes. Blackcurrant jam. 
    • Finish
      Long. More dark fruits. Sticky jam. Bit of tobacco smoke and a slight rubbery note.
