  1. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Delicious sherry garnets - more sherry is gone and it remains whisky. Notes from blind tasting.
    • Nose
      deep red fruits - smashed raspberries, sour cherries, young balsamic with a bit of acidity, plum jam with cinnamon, incredibly oily fat sweetness wafting through the glass, grape seeds, burned match meets freshly ground coffee and cocoa, strong vanilla, some mint, dark oak - sweetness and Acid change frequently - the acid is more in the foreground for me
    • Taste
      Spicy on the nose, lots of peppery aromatic oak - very intense, chocolate, espresso, fresh mint and sweet cherries - sour raspberries, light tingles - a dose of herbs and spices, it is getting creamier in the mouth, fruits and oak are gaining more and more balance - beautiful complex interwoven - tastes old but at the same time freshly fruity and very intense - the longer you chew, the darker the chocolate, softly sparkles sulfur
    • Finish
      medium to long, creamy with a medium dryness, slightly astringent, spicy, mint and pepper are very long on the tongue

    Beautiful mild sherry nose, slightly sweetish with herbs, harmonious, no alcohol. The 57.6% have quite a lot of power in their mouth! The alcohol is well integrated. Again light sweetness and herbs. Long, powerful finish. Very good whisky, you can recommend if you are on bar.

    An exceptional cask indeed.
    • Nose

      Plum jam, dried fig, mocha, cherry, honey and an oaky, somewhat herbal, spiciness.

      Plum, cherry, caramel, mocha and chestnut.

    With sexy Standard LiquorBottle I would have given more presentation points - why only these chubby pulls

    With time and water you can tease out great creamy sherry flavors.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A lot of sour oak, a hint of solvent, dried fruit, chocolate and some menthol
      Nice intensity
    • Taste
      91 91
      First, sweet dried fruit, tenderly bitter grape skins, some orange peel and coffee. Beautiful sherry and plums.
      Fills the whole mouth and then becomes bitter with caramel and toasted notes
    • Finish
      88 88
      Oak, oak, oak - almost a touch too bitter, but it comes back nutty sherry, plums and vanilla.
      Very long

    A thick enough. But not worth repeating.

    Duration does not always mean better.
