  1. dongolzo81 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Great combination of the Haribo-fruity Glenburgie distillate with bourbon barrel aging, which dominates the nose and the spicy-nutty Manzanilla finish, which is present on the palate and in the finish and complements the given sweetness
    A careful addition of water does no harm

  3. Totoro scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I‘m a sucker for this style, and Manzanilla maturation in general, but still: this is excellent. A real surprise.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The Manzanilla influence is undeniable: yeasty, nutty, slightly salty. Great balance between sweet and sour, and extremely fragrant / aromatic. Marzipan, white chocolate, tangerine, mineral-rich seltzer water, and lemon soda.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Unexpectedly good, even if it needs a couple of drops of water to take the harsher edges off. Creamy, oily, nutty, on salted caramel gelato and almond butter. Sweeter than expected: full of honey and pastry (brioche, pain au chocolat). Some spiky oak provides a welcome kick of spice and pepper as it goes down.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pleasingly maritime, with sea salt, well-behaved oak, peanut butter, vanilla pudding, and crème brûlée.

  4. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very nice, strong, fruity and spicy whisky. Nice in balance, very pleasant dram.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very fruity, strong alcohol punch, some citrus, some nuts as well and spices.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Pretty strong, pickering, fruity and spicy, some nuts, some orange. Full taste.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still pretty strong and pickering, some fruits and sweetness, honey, pretty long.

  6. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Overall difficult to see through, the manzanilla brings dry nutty notes, good drinking, no miss notes, but does not quite hit my nerve

    After a second tasting without Notes, I go a bit up in the rating.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Dry, slightly nutty, sour yellow fruit, marzipan, slightly closed
    • Taste
      85 85
      oily, dry, nut, unripe banana, vanilla, creamy, with water comes through clearly oak, wood, bitter, the basic character remains the same
    • Finish
      85 85
      very creamy, vanilla, banana, some hazelnut, long-lasting, with time always over, some oak

  10. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Even without water a nice nose, with water he opens up properly.
    • Nose
      (With water) sweet nose. Banana sauce, sherry, mild spices.
    • Taste
      Ripe bananas, honey, ginger. Dark chocolate over time, getting dry.
    • Finish
      Nutty finish, fruit volatilizes, dry.
