      Dry Citrus is the first and then some toffee and wood
    • Finish
      83 83
      Decent aftertaste of black tea, slightly bitter and oily in a pleasant way.

  3. marmeladow scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Undiluted sherry flavors, dominated by ABV.
    Tasted at 48%: Now in the nose sherry, dried fruit, sweetness, a little citrus. In the mouth also ginger and marzipan, but overall somewhat impetuously youthful. Leaving just medium length. Not entirely convincing

    Interesting, with a very good ballance between the different cask influences.
    It's hot, and it would be interesting to experiment some more with different levels of water.
    • Nose
      80 80
      In no way intimidating, actually quite soft.
      Dominated by sweet slightly citric barley notes.
      Both bourbon vanilla and sherry fruit notes present, but neither is overpowering the other.
      Maybe a little simple and "boring" but still very tempting.
      Water brings out more fruit, the yellow kind.
      And some sourness, almost peat like.
      In my opinion the nose is better neat.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Pretty powerfull and spicy hot arrival.
      Here the sherry clearly take a lead.
      Midway the sherry recides a bit and opens up for some unripe bone hard pear, not much juice here.
      Doesn't take much water to calm it down considerably.
      Quite opposite to the nose this brings more of the sherry forward and supress the lighter notes.
    • Finish
      82 82
      As the sherry notes recide there are some very nice sweet vanilla bourbon notes emerging.
      Neat the spicy warmth is very long.
      As with the main body, water favours the sherry notes.
      Even if it's a bit hot, I prefer it neat.
