5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.88 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A young and modern dram. It's oaky and sherried, but not overpowering. Apart from the palate, it has a good balance between spirit and maturation. 
    • Nose
      A modern young sherry-matured dram: high in alcohol, woody, and sherried (here it's oxidiation of bone dry Oloroso that speaks). Having said that, it's not that monstuous that it totally masks the spirit. First, it's oxidised grape, both dry and wet wood, and raisins that speak. There is also a leafy side (dry tobacco leafs, forest soil) from the maturation. Then, there is plenty of candied ginger and a bit of clove. After that, the powdery, confectionery character of the spirit (icing sugar, candy cherries) shows. 
    • Taste
      Heavy, a tad meaty (leather), dried fruits (raisins, figs), spices (ginger, clove), wood. Less influence of the spirit, but still some apple pastry to be detected.
    • Finish
      Short to moderate, with a better balance between maturation and spirit now. The apple pastry comes out better than on the palate. It is accompanied by the dried fruits, spices, a hint of leather and wood.

    Cherie cherie lady, the theme off "Modern talking"
    Schitterende dailuane
    • Nose
      Bloedappelsientjes, donkere chocolade.
      Vleugje gember gevolgd door wat roze peper.
    • Taste
      Gekonfijte Appelcompote verrijk met dadeltjes.
      Lichte kaneelspoortjes, orangesnoepjes
    • Finish
      Warme body

  5. mandragoru did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS tasting notes:Looking at the colour, noting the age and nosing it this one could not hide its provenance. Aromas of powdered ginger, ground cloves and cinnamon mixed with blood orange segments, dark sour Morello cherries and bacon frazzles making this quite an experience. Just wait until you’ve tried it! Full-bodied with plenty to tell; wood spices, tart apples and plenty of sour cherries, but at the same time dark bitter chocolate notes. Diluted, spicier with slightly herbal aromas appeared as well as honey like syrup from sun drenched figs and on the palate, goat cheese blended with mascarpone, roast beetroot and walnuts.

    DRINKING TIP: Is it ‘Sherry o’ clock’ yet?
