  1. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A concentrated, viscous, complex sample, with the characteristic "musty" features of a long-stored whiskey. A very colorful, unusual, catchy release in which you want to delve into. This is not whiskey for every day! ..
    • Nose
      The aroma of tightly interwoven notes of dried cherry, nutmeg, fresh baguette with tones of old leather, varnished board, whitewash and broken brick. For some reason I also feel a shade of noble “junk”, which is usually present in whiskey bottled in the last century. This shade undoubtedly adorns the aroma.
    • Taste
      Notes of cherry and nut with mustard, plus tannins and spices.
    • Finish
      Bright, energetic, long enough, with echoes of caramel, cherries, dried apricots, sweet pastries, almonds, with a touch of noble “junk” and a mineral nuance, which is usually inherent in bourbons.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    My 2nd virgin note of the evening, had a few 8 year of this before but not this particular bottling.
    The sherry is strong here as the nose is very expressive mixed with a hint of smoke and orange with a little peat.
    Creamy and spicy with a good dollop of peat mixing with ripe fruits, punchy for 40%.
    I always thought both the 8 year and 15 HF were nice whisky, this is another good one.
    The finish is pleasantly warming, remaining sweet
