  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Nice bottling, the nose is comparable to a lot of other sherried PC's in this particular age range. The taste and finish however stand out for me in this one.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Campfire smoke, piccalilly, caramel and toffee sweetness, some varnish, smoked and salted ham, mocha and peanut
    • Taste
      90 90
      Peat smoke, black pepper, coffee and cream, cocoa, sweet prunes, salted liquorice and a little charcoal.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Very long and lingering: a clear mocha note, salted liquorice, charred oak wood and black pepper.

  2. aphex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Another excellent Private Bottling PC.

    Tasting notes from july 2017.
    • Nose
      Typical peaty sherry. Smoky, meaty and leathery. Ripe fruits. Whiffs of ashes and hay.

      With aeration, the ripe fruits are more present : prunes, plums, figs.
    • Taste
      Continuity of the nose with the smoked meat and fruits. There are some spices too and coffee.With water : more sherry notes plus coastal notes on the nose, more fruity sweetness on the palate.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky. The meat and fruits are lingering.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Blackberry, peat, mocha, toffee and sulphur. Water adds a little peach.
    • Taste
      Peat, blackberry, toffee and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, blackberry and mocha.

  4. Andara scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice one but a tad to much of Bleistiftspähnen (Pencil Shaving). Needs lots of air.

  5. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    High expectation before tasting this, I would say I'm not disappointed at all. Lovely stuff.

  6. etwa77 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      92 92
      old leather and dusty book covers.. strawberries and blueberries become stronger with time in the glass..
      herbal, alcohol-drenched bitters
      /
    • Taste
      90 90
      sweet, peat and fragrant herbs.. aniseed
      /
    • Finish
      89 89
      subdued.. herbal dry and peaty.. it’s hard to believe there is over 60 abv in this friend.. but the warmth slowly spreading in my tummy helps reminding that this is a high calibre dram
