  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Well chosen, the single cask. The nose is a spice cupboard, on the tongue it is then balanced.
    • Nose
      Wonderfully spicy: black pepper, nutmeg, cloves. Pimento. The after-maturation in the Sherry-Hogshead gets through quite well. The interplay between spices and sherry is fun in the nose.
    • Taste
      Full mouthfeel, with a hefty helping of whole milk chocolate on the go. Immediately afterwards, the sherry floods. Toffee and caramel. As spicy as it was in the nose, it is now balanced on the tongue. Sweetness of grapes and dark berries.
    • Finish
      Medium long and dry. This gradually shows more and more woody notes, which are cushioned by the sherry and round ground. And finally, there is another kick berry sweet.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: frivolity in a glass, but yet timid, wood a mild sherry notes (reduced: more aromatic warm fruity notes)

    P: very fresh, anice, woody and drying (reduced: more flavors like fruit and vanillins)

    F: again fresh with anice, spicy and warming

    C: frisky and funny.
