  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Ordinary malt. The sherry is not dark fruit, but rather yellow fruit, sweet and fresh. In addition a certain spice. Can you have a drink? But you do not miss anything now.

  3. peatbogger scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    Bottle have been sitting half full for around 3 month, and it has mellowed and improved significantly. On first taste I don't think I would have given this more than 75p.
    • Nose
      79 79
      Apples, citrus and some sweet sherry notes.
      Light and very fresh, but nose to deep and the alc gets very sharp and tingly.
      There is a distinct floral note that I can't name.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Spicy orange.
      Some dark fruits and a little chocolate.
      Quite pleasant oily mouthfeel, still leaning towards dry and bitter.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The dry and bitter notes takes over in the finish, but it's somewhat saved by a very long and powerfull lingering of the spice.

    Classy sherry whisky, complex. Simply very round and succeeded, in addition to the excellent PLV. That's fun!
    • Nose
      Sherrynoten immediately present, raisins, pleasant spice. Dark dried fruit, sweetish, the alcohol is excellently integrated.
    • Taste
      Sweet onset, slightly bitter, then chocolaty and oily. Stimulates salivation. It remains fruity sweet. Pleasantly complex and no false notes, all extremely harmonious.
    • Finish
      Medium long and fruity sweet, with a pleasant spice. Sweetish he remains present.

    • Taste
      Soft and pleasant, "thin", oak, rose water, ash, green apple

    • Nose
      Net melon, apples, beautiful harmony of sweetness and sherry notes, "light" notes not heavy but fresh and fruity.

      very sweet with classy spicy notes of clove, vanilla and cinnamon. Again always elegantly fresh and slightly fruity.
    • Finish
      Quite bitter, cocoa and espresso notes, cereal notes. medium

    87/100
    • Nose

      sweet onset, the 1st-fill sherry puncheons are noticeable, stone fruit, now darker like plums or cherries, cinnamon, slightly bitter oak, chocolate, dry sandalwood note
    • Finish
      delicate bitter oak, oranges, apricots, short to medium long

  10. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Dangerously tasty. A whisky where you have to take care when pouring. Otherwise the Nosingglas is full ......
    • Nose
      Start immediately with orange and chocolate. Reminds me somehow of chocolate refreshment sticks filled with orange. Some menthol and slightly spicy. When you let your colleagues breathe, it becomes more and more fruity and sweeter. Mild Sherrynoten and little alcohol noticeable. By the time there is still a trace of leather. Something stands out, but I'm just not on it.
    • Taste
      Mild entrance. Immediately there is the refreshment bar with chocolate and orange. The orange brings a bit of bitterness. The alcohol is holding back. The seasoning is there, but only in the background. Creamy mouthfeel. The second sip makes it even more fruity and sweeter. Juicy peach. Boha is the most comfortable. Luckily, there is a bit of bitterness and a little spice. Otherwise I would drink the stuff from the bottle. ;-)
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Some cocoa and coffee. But still the fruity sweetness is there.
