  1. zaphod155 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Full, strong sherry drop, which actually reminds a little at Christmas
    • Nose
      Strong Sherrynote. Malty, honey sweet, fruit bread. Gets spicier with time. In the background, light leather and wood flavors. Above all lies a slight alcoholic sharpness
    • Taste
      Fruity sweet onset with a subtle chili sharpness. Honey, vanilla and oak flavor. Add dark chocolate. Very creamy mouthfeel. Here, too, I have the fruitcake, although not as clear as in the nose. Also, chocolate gingerbread.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy and sweet, with dark chili chocolate.

    Nice sherried whisky. Neither complex nor strong, but very enjoyable nevertheless -- especially for the price!
    • Nose
      Raisins, apple juice and cinnamon. The alcohol is still noticeable in this relatively young whisky.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouth feel, if you take a big sip. Vanilla, followed by dark chocolate and spices.
    • Finish
      Medium in length. Dark chocolate and a bitter fruitiness persist the longest.
