  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    distillery not too famous, sherry bomb, what gives !?
    Can chivas work well?
    • Nose
      it causes!!
      macerated fruit and maderized, mold, we attack of course a "big" sherry!
      wood too, intense, tenacious,
      some spices, sweet caramel, honey
    • Taste
      Madeirised wine like an old maury, with its dust on the neck at the bottom of a cellar, the Madeira side of the fruits (grapes, cooked orange), mildew, the wine that stands out strongly
      some honey and cocoa
      the alcohol arrives "finally" to amplify even more these scents
      the barrel was stronger than the distillate, but what a good Sherry it must be!
    • Finish
      Alcool chaleur, moisissure et Xérès, bois aussi, bien mélangés
      c'est long et bon, surprenant.

      rich sherry notes, dates with some roasted nuts, vanilly, deep sweet spices
    • Taste
      86 86
      sulphury, intense fruity sherry, toffee, velvety, malty body
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium, with more honey and floral notes

  3. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A big sherry monster, but surprisingly oaky and spicy. 87/88.
    • Nose
      Phosphorous sherry, caramel, raisin, prune, jelly and gingerbread.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sherry, tannic oak, pepper and ginger, dried fruits, marzipan and lemon peel.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, fruity.
