General description

The nose is very nice, but just a good sherry nose. But in the mouth the oak brings just too much blunt bitterness to enjoy it. A bit dimensional as well.

Nose

Deep sherry nose with red berries, cherries, apples, vanilla and pineapple. A bit sweet but also a bit tart, maybe from ginger.

Palate

Creamy and mouthwatering. Strong oak with a harsh bitterness! Powerful approach. The oak tastes too bitter to compare it with coffee or chocolate. Too much...

Finish

Warming and getting a bit sweeter again with caramel and malt. At the end the oak bitterness remains.

General description

Good lawd this is some damn good scotch! Notes of raisins, vanilla, brown sugar, cake, strawberry... rich, full bodied flavor that wraps up with a cranberry juice flavor that's sweet but leaves some tartness in your mouth. If you're a fan of sherried scotch, this is a must try.

Nose

Raisins, vanilla, brown sugar, wonderfully sweet, strawberry, moist yellow cake

Palate

Warm sweetness, full bodied, a bit waxy, sweet, vanilla, spiced cherries

Finish

Prunes, cranberry juice, a leathery pucker that sticks around

General description

Nose is not particularly complex but it is nice. Tasting is sweet, sherry forward and enjoyable. This expression is lower ABV, I would suggest the higher ABV if possible thwme flavors seem to be more pronounced at higher ABV.

General description

Sherry bomb, very similar to Glenmorangie Lasanta but a little more wood character and texture. Good stuff. Balanced and smooth.

General description

Sweet sherry, fruit, and some vanilla on the nose. Inviting beginning, which doesn't disappoint on the palate. Rich creamy sweetness that goes down silky smooth and provides the palate with hints of fruit and honey. Finish is very elegant and leaves a nutty note with no residual burn. Simply engaging.

Nose

fruit, vanilla, sherry

Palate

fruit and honey

Finish

nutty
