  1. maltaholic scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Woody, spicy in the aroma. A touch of alcohol. A touch of vanilla.
      Lovely in the mouth. The spice unfolds. Bark, sawdust, juniper, herbs.
      Long, spicy finish.
      Pretty good.

    High sherry but also clear bourbon barrels - nice and round - good PLV
    • Nose
      Beef stock with boiled vegetables, lovage, earthy, grape seeds, sour wine, berries removed
    • Taste
      soft, full-bodied with well-integrated alcohol, aromatic red berries with mint and lots of chocolate, vanilla and nuts
    • Finish
      very long and warming, wood and fruits are very long on the tongue

    a beautiful dram if you like the style.
    • Nose
      starts fruity on red berries and apricot. the sherry influence is much more prominent than in the light blue label version. but it´s not a sherry bomb as it stays rather fresh. just the right amount of oak and vanilla. reminds me of good japanese blends because of its harmony.
    • Taste
      same feeling on the palate, it´s just what you expected after nosing. perhaps you can add some plum wine and hints of honey. very harmonious.
    • Finish
      medium to long, becoming a little spicy

    This newer version is different to the earlier versions with the white label, heavier and more full bodied.

    Nice stuff, good value.
