2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. Bona scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    A real Olorosobomb. Dry, tart. Not a flatterer and not much fun either. But quite interesting.

      A little alcoholic. Acidic. Dry oloroso, some stock cubes (!). Bitter orange, oak
    • Taste
      86 86
      Intense on the tongue, dry, very spicy, orange peel, a lot of oak, fermented grapes, slightly burned nuts, a hint of citrus. Very extreme for 9 years.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Bitter, woody. Very tart and not balanced. A slight alcohol note remains

  2. Murphy scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Reminds me a bit of some beautiful bourbon barrels from the Isle of Jura, only milder. Of course I know that this is a little bit away and even a teaspoon does not have that effect.
    • Nose
      Sweet oak. The alcohol is discreetly noticeable in the nose. Pleasant acid, vanilla with a hint of citrus note.
    • Taste
      In the first sip of the alcohol makes immediately noticeable, but quickly subsides and leaves a pleasant warmth. Again, the oak comes first with a distinct but pleasing bitterness. Next to it again the vanilla but unfortunately little sweetness.
    • Finish
      Warm and medium length.
