    A very intense and fruity barrel.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Immediately it exudes an extremely fruity scent of cherries in the glass, combined with a nuttiness. Sweet caramel, figs and dates join.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Strong alcohol, but still develops a fruity variety of flavors. The fruit notes explode later in the mouth, mostly cherries, some juicy figs and strawberries.

      With water even fruity and sweet, oak bitterness occurs.
    • Finish
      89 89
      The fruitiness remains, cherries and figs abound, oak bitterness, incredibly long finish for the age.

  10. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    a great young sherry bomb.
    • Nose
      Lots of sherry, toffee, some balsamic, a touch of salt caramel, very sweet yet spicy and amazingly, the alcohol does not bite at all. With water almost a little flatter, even more toffee and toffee.
    • Taste
      Pure with strong power, but doable, sweet at first, sherry, toffee, then surprisingly tart, a bit hot and almost a bit bitter. He does not change so much with water, still powerful, even more toffee and sherry, a little tamer.
    • Finish
      warm, slightly bitter, then caramel, dried fruit, sherry. With water you also notice something oak
