    All in all not bad, but for me nothing screams 'buy me!'
    • Nose
      From the sherry Vollreifung I notice, at least what is fruit, not all too much. Something dark fruit is already there, but it already has something musty, bitter, that gives it a kind of maturity, but unfortunately somehow out of round.
      Overall, rather on the woody-spicy side.
    • Taste
      Spicy again in the mouth, because something like almond and old vanilla may be, maybe even a tangerine peel ...
      He gets better behind the back.
    • Finish
      The finish I like best, because the spicy is very pleasant.

    Quite prickly on the nose for only 43%, a decent sherry burst mixing with the fruit.
    Nicely sweet on the palate, no rough edges, very simple profile with a nice sweet finish mixing crystalized fruits with a little caramel.

    An 18 year at this price is god value, roughly £60 in the UK but its really a daily sipper do I suppose you can get something cheaper that would do the job I suppose.

    Yes I would buy a bottle and if you like sweet, creamy whisky you should like this one.

  5. Bam scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      85 85
      Sour green apples, orange peel, some menthol. Very fresh nose. Brings ripe red fruits and a light nuttiness from the background. Earthy and grassy.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet sherry at first, which is immediately replaced by slightly bitter apple peels. The oak is spicy and slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Espresso, oak milk chocolate, the oranges flashing again.
