  6. p4blo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    An uncomplicated dram with a rather mild shery influence. Good balance, but not really entertaining.
    • Nose
      Nougat, toffee, some raisins, dried prunes, a hint of smoke and ash. Nice balance.
    • Taste
      Sweet at first, nutella, almonds, toffee, orange zest, after a while becomes more spicy with cinnamon and pepper dominating.
    • Finish
      Slight toffee sweetness initially, then a big hit of smoke lingering for quite a while.

    Pretty decent overall.
    • Nose
      Something resinous about it along with peach and apricot jam and some smoked ham notes.

      Sweet caramel
    • Taste
      Powerful and smoky with it but the caramel sweetness is evident. There are some mice raspberry notes and moist Jam sponge.

      Very syrupy and creamy with it
    • Finish
      Long and smooth. just a little unbalanced for me, there is literally too much sherry and it is drowing everything else out.
