    • Nose
      Fruity, some markers of sherry type: dried fruits
    • Taste
      Very fluid, sweet and fruity.
    • Finish
      Relatively short.

  2. Whiskybayer scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Violent spices and sweet cherry jam come first in the nose, really oily with candied dark fruits and pepper. The oak barrel can be felt. After approx. 15 minutes in the air, bitter herb notes are added. The herbal spice is already dominant. Milk chocolate and milk coffee in the finish. The PX sherry is delicately recognizable, not as heavy as other bottlings. For a spice that I rarely experienced in a whisky.
