    A strong dram by the ABV, for me here and there just ff too much. But also a grain that leans towards a single malt on sherry. Well recognizable as grain, but almost a hybrid.
    • Nose
      The glue disappears into the background quite quickly. The typical sherry remains: sweet, dried fruit, but also the earthiness of nuts and wood.
    • Taste
      Spicy dram, do not expect at that age that ABV would cut it like this. A bitter, earthy taste. Many notes. Just wait and the sweet fruit comes forward. Sharp, bitter and slightly creamy.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, but also the burning of the alcohol lingers.

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Yes clearly show savory sherry. There is still the initial and well-known glue air. But you find some leather and some dark herbs in the nose. Furthermore, this is not very special on the nose, but I suspect that water does open up the lot. With water: Then the lot is indeed looser. The 'heavy' is off and there is more straw influence. Still clear sherry influences.
    Taste: Indeed, very high in the alcohol. Furthermore, this is sweet as cream butter babblers, but there is also a clear sherry taste. Seems to have a little Tamdhu influences. It is sweet and savory from the sherry. It is only superficial. With water: It is all a bit milder, but the idea remains the same
    Body: Full and greasy
    Finish: Medium length. Pretty abrupt ending actually. Pulls away somewhat bitterly. With water it becomes more and more a sherry bomb explosion and the finish is also a bit longer. But still it collapses a bit.
    Comment: Fine stuff. Bit of a deviant grain. If this had been blind, you would encounter everything in terms of distilleries (bunna, glenfarclas, blair athol, tamdhu etc) And in terms of age you could also get everything between 8 and 40 years, but I do not think people would go for a grain. All in all a great juice with good sherry influences 88 points.

  6. Steven79 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Immediately after pouring a light glue scent, but also the sherry tones are coming through. After 5 minutes the glue smell has already disappeared. Wood, vanilla, dried fruit.
    Taste: Nice greasy mouthfeel. Butter babbler. Little bit of wood. Chocolate. Less sweet than the typical grain on bourbon barrel. Personally, I think this is actually nice. After 30 minutes also raisins. After an hour a drop of water added, this makes him even better!
    Finish: Fruit! Slightly drying, small bitterness. After a drop of water, the finish is slightly sweeter.
    This whiskey in no way resembles a grain (except the initial glue smell). It is that it is there, but otherwise it could also have gone for a malt. Very tasty whiskey!

  9. wisekycourse did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    On the nose, heavy old wood, the grimoire and some fresh notes of grass!
    2nd:
    a little dust, noble rot, slightly ripe fruits, raisins, rather pronounced spices on a taste of pastry, and vanilla, glue and almond.

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    A very old grain whisky, enhanced by its long maturation in refill sherry casks. At the nose it’s darkly perfumed with notes of mint, camphor, a strong impression of old books and even a hint of smokiness. At the palate the sweetness of the cereals and the vanilla notes imparted by the long maturation are immediately evident, but soon the aromatic and slightly bitter notes of mint, liquorice, gentian root and old leather-bound books nicely complement it. Towards the finish, it’s an impressive crescendo of tannins from the oak: peppery and slightly astringent, but with the creamy cereal sweetness still lingering in the background to provide an intriguing tapestry.
