    Meh. Not worth its price.
    • Nose

      Light nose, hints of the sherry casks but very discrete. Oak, caramel, raisins. Not very complex.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Watery texture, I don't understand why they keep bottling at 40% abv. Quite nutty. Vanilla, dried fruits, but the fruits are overpowered by the nutty taste. Quite muted.
    • Finish

      Medium short, oaky, with a lingering bitterness. Not great.

  3. maltaholic scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    It smells of wood and sherry. Not very good, but goes.
    Something stands out, fermented fruit, pomace perhaps?

    Something furry in the mouth, almost like sloe.
    Something bitter, very spicy.

    He does not convince me.
    Since I had better of Macallan.
