  1. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    An honest, simple malt with nice fruity notes, a noticeable sherry influence and a lot of power.
    At first I found the alcohol in the nose to be too dominant and pointed, but it gets a bit more pleasant over time. The fruits come through nicely. In terms of taste, it goes one better, really tasty fruit notes, as well as a little honey and tart chocolate with spices. The finish continues the whole thing nicely, some cocoa comes to mind.

    Personally, the bottom line is a bit too rough and one-dimensional, but still quite tasty, honest and personable. Can be done and does not hurt anyone :)

    I am completely with Lukas_Kiene. It couldn't be more aptly described.

  4. glendronach64 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    My favorite flavor, sulfur and sherry
    • Nose
      90 90
      Sweet, sulfur (burned match), sherry, prunes appear.
    • Taste
      95 95
      It starts out sweet and fruity, the sulfur is present, everything is very voluminous (probably due to the 57.5% vol.), It becomes drier on the palate.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long and dry

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    More than solid, strong, hearty drinking malt for everyday use, if you are on stronger, dry Oloroso sherry, angular leather and malt as a counterpoint.
    • Nose
      Hearty nose, toffee, vanilla, light malt, peach, a lot of butter, young, polished leather, some red apple, fennel, some camphor, pecans
    • Taste
      Similar experience, buttery, a lot of malt with a nice edge, young leather, more red apple and a few strawberries, toffee, honey, beautiful oak, camphor, tick nutmeg, ginger, walnut
    • Finish
      Apple chips, leather, distinct, beautiful malt, ginger, long, licorice

  7. LordIslay scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    An "honest" rock solid Highland Malt for a great price.
    If the price were to be a criterion in the following evaluation, the number of points would definitely be higher.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sweet and heavy nose.
      The finish is immediately recognizable!
    • Taste
      84 84
      Despite the barrel strength, it lies comfortably on the tongue.
      Bourbon Cask and Sherry Finsh unmistakable.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Fruity and fine finish.
