  1. mrgood scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    This whisky wants to be sherried, tries hard to be sherried, thinks it IS sherried... but it isn't and doesn't know how be.

    sweet and dry like a martini, with just the slightest hints of the deep chocolate of a good sherry whisky, but not quite, it's fleeting. It wasn't really doing it for me so I added water quickly (too quickly, I really should've given it a fairer shake at full strength). There's a hint of something on the nose that doesn't quite agree with me (kind of a dull thud... or the olfactor equivalent of a dull thud?) and it's amplified a bit with water. That said, I do like this better with a small dash of water, gives it more honey and lemon.

    The taste was subdued at first but after the dash of water it's much better. The fruity sweetness is so much more apparent now. More honey as well.

    At first the nose has a sort of dishwater smell mixed with cheese about it?
    Faint hints of fruit but something is holding it back, not very expressive and I have added a few drops of water, maybe I have dulled it with water?
    sweet and syrupy on the palate with a little pepper, rather bland.
    Finish is decent enough but a little harsh.
    Not great but better than MOTR.

      Honey, apple, sugared almond and vanilla.

      Slightly peppery, sweet weather. Honey, vanilla. Reasonably long. Again something peach-like. Heated finish, some wood tones.

  8. Willum scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nice dram for this summer evening; I think it is a beautiful flowing whole without becoming flat or boring. 88 points. Tasted at blind tasting (VBT9)
    • Nose
      Pleasant nose. I smell fudge / caramel / butter babblers, vanilla, coconut and a little bit of banana. Sweet, gentle scents.
    • Taste
      During the tasting, this continues and custard and biscuits also come forward.
    • Finish
      Medium and soft.

    He looks young, sharp, so he is against me. The nose is on, the taste is too hard and sharp.
    • Nose
      Typical grain nose. Glue, citrus. A light nut, vanilla. However, the adhesive is quickly gone.
    • Taste
      Unexpectedly. Slightly higher ABV. Heavier taste than nose. Chocolate and nuts. Sharply. Light and creamy.
    • Finish
      Medium.
