  5. Maltm8 did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    Good stuff
    • Nose
      Unstruck matches, but not offensive. Prunes, raisins, toasty oak, faint hint of nail polish
    • Taste
      Sherry sweet, wood spice, butterscotch, malt
    • Finish
      Here is the magic, powerful fade of spice, dark fruit (prunes) leather and chocolate

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Surprised to see that this one's still available after 5 years, because this is a stunning whisky.
    • Nose
      There's the dark sherry notes, such as prune, toffee, cherry, raisin and date. Then there's that typical exactly right dose of sulphur that adds some spice like laurel and liquorice. And last but not least there's that mature touch of leather that you normally only find in sherried whiskies of over 25 years old. Great rich nose, 90+.
    • Taste
      Prune, toffee, leather, coffee and clove.
    • Finish
      Prune, laurel, liquorice, cherry, toffee and rum raisins.
