  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Well that is something to think about. A very surprising dram that has
    huge cask influence. Not at all unpleasant but certainly unexpected.
    • Nose
      (This is tricky because I forgot I don't have a nosing glass up here) It
      is like sticking your head in a newly opened bag of raisins, then
      there's a citrus rush, followed by dates. Its all fruit. I can't detect
      any grain at all.
    • Taste
      I can't remember having such a fruity dram. The wine influence is
      extraordinary. Its like drinking marmalade diluted with Cointreau.
      Amazing.
    • Finish
      Only here does the grain assert itself, coming through with the
      spiciness of the wood. Dried fruits are still all over it though.

    Found some N.B. 16yo sign. c. sherry, left in a sample bottle at 48.9%. Very soft and smooth, very enjoyable. From my friend CJVD or someone else? Anyway -thanks!
