  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very nice nose: sherry, wood, fresh fruit, vanilla, biscuit malt, then a little vegetal, fresh and minty. With water, more honeyed and with dried fruits. In the mouth, it spoils: much too keen on the attack, shame, there are beautiful fruits in the syrup behind. With water it's a little better, but lacks fullness.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  4. Maltmaniac72 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    From my point of view: Everything a sherryfassgereifter Malt must have.
    • Nose
      Initially, distinct oak notes that dissolve into the glass after some standing and reveal dark aromas of the sherry cask: prunes and other dried fruit like (rum) raisins, waves of dark chocolate, some tobacco and vanilla. In addition, creamy in the nose. 44 points.
    • Taste
      Oily consistency. Thin streaks on the glass. Voluminous sherry flavors, creamy and cuddly on the palate: freshly brewed coffee / espresso, dark chocolate, raisins, prunes. Spicy oak, Christmas spices. Everything is well balanced, tasty and full-bodied. Sweet and tasty, 45 points.
    • Finish
      Very soft, with a lot of sherry and waves of bitter chocolate. Toasted malt.
