  1. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      92 92
      Complex & interesting
      In addition to notes of dry sherry, you will find resinous wood, sweet corn (cotton candy), dark chocolate, leather, plum must, balsamic vinegar and a great blend of spices.
    • Taste
      94 94
      Full body.
      Can be enjoyed undiluted - but I added a few drops of water - that makes it milder without losing the aromas.
      Very round & balanced - no burning (only a pleasant tingling sensation can be felt) - no unpleasant wood notes. The nose reflects the flavors on the tongue.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long, sweet, mild and balanced - with red grapes, wood and forest honey.

  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Taste this in a show, sorry for the short notes but this is truly legendary.
    • Nose
      A whiff of peat (I might be wrong), strong violet flowers mixed with seaweeds, extremely aromatic, dark prunes, huge sherry influence. 
    • Taste
      Lavender (not the perfume), top quality VORS sherry, bitter and sweet orange, quite dynamic.
    • Finish
      Dusty sherry, very long.

    Color: Amontillado / Madeira Sherry
    Nose: Immediately starts a wave of flavor and leaves hardly time to write; dry sherry, currants, apricots, tobacco, maggie seasoning, balsamic, leather, straw, coffee beans and aromas of coffee cream. Class!
    Taste: Heavy diet with notes of old sherry casks, humidor, red cherries and berries, elderberry, rum punch, leather, wood, furniture stain, wooden boards, orange peel and a handful of herbs.
    Finish: Long - but also quite tart. Jam, wood, blueberries, elderberry, some honey and dark chocolate.
    92 points (Nose: 94 / Taste: 92 / Finish: 90)
