    Very nice balanced whisky with some good dynamics in heat and sweetness. Clearly a sherry based whisky in line with the age. Very appealing!Score 86-88
    • Nose
      Medium impact nose. Sweetness (dried fruits, plums), spices, wood, whiff of smoke. Very appealing.
    • Taste
      Sherry (dried fruits) followed by spices (pepper, nutmeg?, vanilla). Warming mouthfeel. Good complexity and balance. Smooth and a bit creamy.
    • Finish
      Long finish, some heat (spice) followed by sweetness (raisins, honey) with a whiff of (fire)wood. Ending slightly dry.

    Not really spectacular. No € 100 worth in any case
    • Nose
      Dry fruit, raisins, wood, nuts. Wipe cleaner but not annoying
    • Taste
      Clear sherry whisky, soft but just a bit sour. Caramel / burned sugar. Figs, wood, leather and nuts.
    • Finish
      Taninnes, raisins, wood.

    Local Liquorstore tasting by Maxxium Nederland

    Nose: Raisins, nuts and warm spices. A good sherrycask. Some milk chocolate.

    Taste: Matches the nose. Spices, and chocolate covered raisins. Mouthcoating, but still mild. Would love this at CS.

    Finish: Long, peppery spices and a hint of smoke.

    Could be +2 or 3 points with a higher ABV.
