  2. Tauti did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The alcohol is not integrated well additional there is a bitter taste in your mouth which stays for about a minute after sipping.

    But I couldn't smell any sherry notes.. 
    • Nose
      Honey, citrus, straw (guinea pig cage?), cold ashes
    • Taste
      Again honey followed by cold ashes, citrus (lemon here), bitter and alcohol
    • Finish
      long and bitter

  3. Segens scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Too young! If you would need to phrase it in two words that is what I would say! The dram is interesting and for 7 years it has a lot to offer. The Octave Casks are small and therefore deliver a lot of power to this dram. Nevertheless it has too much of this metallic glue smell and taste that young Bourbon Casks (Yes Bourbon actually I do not see a lot of Sherry Influence here) are providing and can be skipped via maturity.. Minimum 5 more years and this cask would have been much better I guess
    • Nose
      Lemon fruits (oranges, lime, mandarine), honey and also some glue in the back.

      Give this dram some seconds!
    • Taste
      quite fruity but too sharp, too agressive and also too metallic
    • Finish
      Especially the finish is too bitter !
