  1. Luigisim scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Fantastic. I do not like very much sherry but this is so balanced and harmonic .... adorable.
    Canasta cask is a beautiful surprise as it helps the spirit to reach a rounded shape.

      92 92
      Sulphur and dense, so much and so well balanced to become almost a beautifully smoked dram, even if is not peated at all
    • Taste
      91 91
      Creamy and sweet
    • Finish
      90 90
      Matured red raisins, long and persistent aftertaste

    Yes, I admit ... I like these kind of sherry bombs quite a lot. Dark, dried apricots, dark chocolate, moldy wine cellar, nuts, dark berries, hints of wine, grapes. Some spices and fine oaky influence. the finish long and full of sherry. that is a really complex dram. Could sit for hours just enjoying one dram. Full of aromas and just excellent. Tasted this one at a Bunnahabhain Ultimate Tasting in 2018.

    N: Sherry, soot, and pickled onions for starters. 
    T: Big sherry arrival. Quickly becomes all-sherry and with more soot.
    F: Winey.
    C: Unless you like old sherry I’d pass. For the price you’d be better off with a Glenalba, or for calibre that 1997 Glenrothes.Scores a B-
