  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    this is not a sherry bomb in the sense of it, rather a sugar bomb, certainly sweet as dessert whisky, but definitely too sweet for me. With water a little more conciliatory in the nose, but on the palate then again too sweet. I prefer to drink NEN good rum. The hype about this bottle I can not understand.
    • Nose
      very very sweet, immediately it is clear. White chocolate, creme brulée, cotton candy, fruitful I would call Lychee and overripe orange here. A very untypical, almost brandy Sherrynase. Not uninteresting. With water: canned peach, canned mandarins, now also cigar box and some leather, looks more mature. Better!
    • Taste
      Here, too, a heavy sweetness, but now clearly "darker", melted milk chocolate couverture, Bailey`s, espresso with lots of sugar, Black Forest cherry. Fierce! With some water: creamy, nougat chocolate, Mon Chérie, now again pretty sweet.
    • Finish
      long, milk chocolate and a little oak flavor.

  2. Mannix65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very round and easy-to-drink, personally too harmonious
    • Nose
      Burnt almonds, roasted aromas, furniture polish, mead, a little cheesy
    • Taste
      Very nutty, sweet sherry, pickled cherries, full-bodied, very round and creamy, almost creamy
    • Finish
      Sweet and rather short, very tasty

  4. Lorion scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Except for a few aspects in the nose (the artificiality and the occasionally flashing alcohol), this is an incredibly good whisky. He could get a truly stunning score. So it is "only" (absurd to use the word "only" here) 90 points. And there could really be more.
    • Nose
      "Sherry and wood - both flow intensely into the nose. Sweet mulled wine. There is a spicy note of cinnamon. An almost artificial perfume note develops quickly. Grapes, cherries. Surprisingly, after a while the alcohol in the nose only begins Baked apple and dark chocolate, occasionally a little spicy cheese flashes up and then disappears behind the fruit.

      Water: sweeter. Applesauce. More supple than undiluted. "
    • Taste
      "Deliciously sweet and fruity. Incredibly soft and juicy. Intense cherries. Milk chocolate. Sugared wood. Even more sweetness in the taste. More cherries. This is really great. Sweet herbs.

      Water: cherry liqueur from the wooden barrel. Wine-soaked leather. Cocktail cherry. "
    • Finish
      Long, warm and incredibly sweet and sticky.
