  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 92 points Moderator

    This is definitely more than a daily dram - very well balanced - I never had the feeling that it is over-sherried
    • Nose
      Huge and intense dried fruits, plums, prunes, dates, toffee, butter caramel, sugar cane - very good
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, creamy, lots of dried fruits again, figs, nutmeg, very nice oak wood, good sweetness
    • Finish
      Long and burning, spicy and peppery but not drying

    Nose: toffee and caramel sweetness that always changes to balsamic vinegar, plum jam and almond / hazelnut flavors, the alcohol is quite well integrated, but is present and gives him something fresh, mentholhaftes, oaks and spice flavors come through, especially cloves and some cinnamon , red fruits like raspberry and strawberry

    Taste: Sherry explosion in the mouth, quite oily, the alcohol bites very strong here, has a peppery, slightly dry oak

    Finish: long and warm, later drier on the tongue, again massive sherry with dried fruit and the hazelnut from the nose is now much more dominant, almost towards nougat

    With water: it softens, opens and reveals much more fruit flavors, then vanilla and even some coconut cream with chocolate topping

    Significantly better than the previous batches, which is almost back towards batch 1 - 89 points

    a great Dram I appreciate 10-15 years old from fresh barrels - because he seems so active and lively fresh - many spices and fruits united without becoming woody - I would not buy it because neither an age is on it nor the PLV is particularly good
    • Nose
      Cardboard box, roux, lime, orange, orange oil, mint, carambola, raspberry pulp, prunes, lemon zest - heavy oily nose, nutmeg, laurel, allspice, a touch teriyaki sauce - waxy heavy sweetness - as you know from older sherry casks, spicy fresh light oak - peppery - aromatic it goes into tobacco notes - if you breathe slowly over the edge - you will find green tea and jasmine aromas - these are fleeting and show us only when the glass gets the peace to form a fragrance bell
    • Taste
      Spicy fresh, tingling, plums, lemon zest, peaches and oranges, toasted cereals, oak tobacco - it is rather light and fresh than deep red berry - I know this mouthfeel and the fine spices of SMWS Vigin Oak ripening - but here is certainly some sherry there
    • Finish
      Warming, flattering, elegant but strong - light dryness and some wax at the end of the mid-season finish with mint and citrus
