    Definitely a great sherry cask - very complex and balanced - delicious!

      Dried fruits galore, plums, figs, prunes, nutmeg, toffee, old wooden cabinet, shoe polish, acacia honey, sherry wood, hints of cooked oranges and jam, milk chocolate, whiffs of brown sugar and molasses - superb!

      Little punchy, creamy, good sweetness, liquorice, menthol, eucalyptus, more dried fruits, more sherry wood, spices, dark chocolate, little toffee, also some coffee and espresso - excellent!

      Long, warm, deep sherry notes, balanced sweetness, not drying, more spices, little more woody - great!

    I was intrigued given the high score and the low ABV, so went hunting for a sample. Was lucky to finally get a sample of this from another WB member on the other side of the world, and so glad I did.

    The nose on this whisky absolutely transports me to another time. Amazing layers of old, dusty spice. If only all whisky smelled like this.

    Best whisky I can recall, even at 43%.

      Old mahogany, floor polish, dark fruits, spice, old sherry. Somewhere deep underneath that melange is a hint of vegetation, like a walking through an old forest.

      Old sherry front and center, but well integrated with the malt. After the sherry passes I get toffee and amazingly complex layers of spice and sweetness. Perfection, even at the lower proof.

      95 95
      Extremely long finish with interesting spice and a lingering warmth that. Extremely surprising for a 43%-er.

    Very complex, old sherry whisky. Great nose, very round taste and long finish. So far my absolute highlight!

    Great, my best DRAM ever. It transports it in an "old dusty library in a leather armchair" - feeling perfect.

    Wow, I love these old whiskys, which also got a good portion on tap. A real sherry bomb with an insane body and a fabulous complexity that I would not have expected from a 43% whisky.
    • Nose

      Sherry, dark fruits, tannins, dark chocolate.
    • Taste
      98 98
      Extremely round, sherry continues, a nice sweetness, dark fruits and chocolate, as already announced by the smell. A very complex body with fantastically integrated alcohol. The barrel taste is present but not dominant. Again a real hammer.
    • Finish
      97 97
      Very long and sweet. All flavors remain in the mouth.

  7. jay83 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    The most outstanding about it is, that the intense sherryness with all its famous massive aromas leaves also space for "lighter" aromas like vanilla, coconut and ancient Cognac aspects which is a unique selling point of only the great old Sherry giants. Besides the sensational complex old sherry "broadside" a fantastic sweet fruit basket, the omnipresent old study furniture nuances, tobacco box, old leather cover, and dark wooden floor. No more to say. Wonderful how active and lively it is despite the 43% abv. Breathtaking style of distilled magic from the 60ies! That's why I'm into Whisky!

    Mega horny malt completely filled with chocolate and leather
