  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Got a sample from a friend.

    Had it neat, found it great.

    Full sherry flavour, very complex on both nose and taste.

    Robust, heavy, very present and takes charge of your senses..

  3. thijs100 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Good? Yes. Decent value for money? Totally. However, this is not for the faint-hearted. Strong-willed and quite aggressive.
    • Nose
      Extremely sweet (cotton candy, marzipan), but there's a slight tartness as well. Also, plenty of cocoa powder, followed by some bung cloth. A hint of charred orange peel and rum-soaked raisins.
    • Taste
      Spicy (black and chili pepper), and with a fair amount of new oak as well, yet sweet. Orange juice, chocolate and raisins.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, and finally some sweetness again. Long.
