  6. st7 scored this whisky 98 points Connoisseur

    Excellent sherry-monster. Well balanced.

    Hint: Do NOT add water.
    • Nose
      A very complex nose, from a truly great sherry cask. Large quantities of dried fruits (raisin, apricots, dates and figs), bittersweet English liquorice, coffee (espresso), tobacco, dark chocolate, roasted nuts and brown sugar. Old (but not to old) and dry with sweet vanilla and spicy wood in the background. Superb.
    • Taste
      Strong, rich, spicy and bittersweet. The dried fruit, coffee, tobacco, chocolate and old wood is still there. Creamy with more sweet sherry notes. Almost like wine sauce (gravy). Perfect.
    • Finish
      A long lasting finish, with a little more bitter chocolate from the wood. Now true to its age. Fantastic.
