  1. RL_whisky scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very nice, but not very complex sherry bomb. Something for the sherry lover I think.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasty thing, with 170 € also almost within reach of my wallet, but feels more like 15-20 years, and so you will probably find in the 100 € -Class (or something under it) similar good stuff.
    • Nose
      Spicy-woody, but no fresh sawdust, no age-old, dark cupboard, rather medium-hardwood, with some cinnamon, pepper, dry, aromatic ... with water juicier, fruity, canned peach, mirabelle, orange marmalade, still cinnamon, a Touch ginger
    • Taste
      spicy-woody like the nose - fits, maybe a bit darker, sharper, the fruits rather dried than jam, dark chocolate ... and there is still something dark-tart-sweet behind on the tongue, so between molasses and liquorice, with dark berries
    • Finish
      medium to long, warm, spicy-dry with cocoa and a light, tart fruitiness ... blackberry or blood orange?

  3. Dominik scored this whisky 89 points Member Senior

    Fine example of a sherried cask strength whisky. It might seem heavy on the sweet side at first, but it certainly gains from letting it rest in the glass for some minutes. The careful addition of water tamed the prominent sweetness and brought pleasant citrus notes to light.
    • Nose
      The sherry comes out strong and with it the typical aroma of dried fruits. A lot of sweetness, I'm thinking of apples and prunes that have been lying on the ground for awhile. Mellow oak lingers in the background. (With water: Hints of freshly cut oranges.)
    • Taste
      Spicy at first, you can tell this was bottled at cask strength. Not too strong though as it's oily and velvety in the mouth. Many fruity notes again, notably sweet strawberries. It has something creamy... strawberry and vanilla milkshake? (Having rested in the glass a little longer, with water: Definitely oranges now. Strikes a nice balance with the soft taste of oak.)
    • Finish
      Best described as long-lasting sweetness. More oak later as the mouth gets dry.
