  1. robain scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Interesting, the taste is so different from the nose. Amazing and scary at the same time. Very complex.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Obvious powerful sherry, wet wood, slightly peaty but very subtle.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Wow, extremely powerful kick of peat, like an octomore kick. Sweet, salt and sweaty.
    • Finish

      Some peat but more subtle. Vanilla.

  2. SAND scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    NOSE. Sweetened peat smoke, classical sherry cask notes of died brown and red fruits and berries, also woody notes but rounded, sweetened, not so fresh or sawdusty as in many whiskies these days. In the background; hints of tar smoke, coffee and vanilla. (89p) With water: Hessian with whiffs of tarred ropes. Cured lemon and lime. Camphor, Christmas pudding grass, freshly brewed oolong tea and a hint of good olive oil. (91-92p)
    TASTE: Rich taste. Wood smoke, a some tar, rich and rounded black pepper, good oloroso sherry notes. (88-89p) With water: Slightly sharper black pepperiness, rich, fruity and dry notes of dried fruits (90P).
    EXIT: Sherried in a dry way, with soft black pepper and wood. (87-88p) With water: rounder, softer, more sherried. Medium long to long. (89-90p)
    OVERALL: A rather demanding whisky which not only requires time in the glass and quite a bit of water to fully unfold but also commands your full attention and concentration. Nonetheless a great dram and very impressive for being only four years old. TOTAL SCORE 89 (90) points.

    • Nose
      75 75
      Burnt sweet bbq pork mixed with some hoisin sauce. It's not a very pleasant nose for me.

      Peat. Smoke. Again, quite sweet. Sweet red wine... oh wait, that's what sherry is, isn't it, but here it's somewhat different. Not very well integrated, to be honest, but then again, it is only 4 years old.Quite dry.
    • Finish
      76 76
      A strong, bloody, bbq porky finish... again, not my kinda thing.
