  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    After increasing the volume percentages of 57.7 over 58.6 to 59.9 in the batches B1 / 11-B1 / 13, it is now in the other direction since batch B1 / 14. We have now arrived at 57.4%. Still, this is a great representative of the single pot still whiskeys: full, fruity, spicy, classic pot still. Only in the departure of this batch is my opinion a bit weaker (because shorter) than its predecessors.
    • Nose
      A full, voluminous nose with dark fruits, sultanas and figs. Brown sugar covers the fruits. Next to it a strong leather note. After a while, the fruit fades into the background and pepper and nutmeg, mixed with the leather, take the lead. This spicy nose stays "stable" for a very long time, nothing flattens out.
    • Taste
      Very full and creamy onset, which, although undiluted, does not burn, but only pleasantly warms. Sherrynoten next to fine bitter chocolate, oak is surprisingly easy to taste. Spicy: White pepper, mild liquorice. Almonds. Fresh pipe tobacco. It gets a bit thin at the back.
    • Finish
      Medium long, getting dry. Finished with sherry and berries, oak.

    Great whiskey, smooth at this strenght, not at all a sherrybom, well balanced between cask and spirit. fruity, creme, vanille, buttery, pear... It stays with you, the finish is the best part, it sticks on your tongue.

  7. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    a really great Irishman, lots of sweet fruit paired with sherry notes. Class All Day Dram.
    • Nose
      Pure: very sweet, flowery, powerful Sherrynase. Cotton candy, honey, orange peel. Chocolate, plum cake set the tone in the Sherrynoten. Really delicious and round! With water: more herbs, not so sweet and flowery.
    • Taste
      Pure: sweet, creamy, buttery onset with very nice likerartgien Sherrynoten, milk chocolate, greek yoghurt with honey. hot! With water: drier, not so creamy.
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, chocolaty
