General description

Unripe green apples (sour and bitter), baking spices, creamed nuts, natural vanilla, grape skins, rum, and some oak. The nose and pallet are very good, but the finish is the best part. It tastes a bit like a 25 year old+ Calvados (apple brandy), and is the easiest drinking 48% ABV I've come across. I'm not sure I'd buy a full bottle at $500, but I'd happily pay $350 (so, I'd buy a bottle on sale).

General description

Das Problem einer zu kleinen Probenmenge. Sicherlich ein guter Whisky, dessen verkostetes Volumen jedoch zu gering war, um ihn vernünftig zu beschreiben. Daher möglicherweise auch underrated.

Miellyttävä iäkäs sherryviski.

Pähkinää, kuivattua hedelmää, mahonkia, ruusun terälehtiä, riisimuroja

Palate

Pehmeä, täyteläinen ja miellyttävä. Liukuu kevyesti alas.

Finish

Jälkimaussa sherry nousee vähän katkerana.

General description

Although a little hard work, this is a very enjoyable dram. Characterful and rich with some subtle complexities. Certainly a whisky befitting special occasions.

Nose

Big notes of sherry-soaked fruit up front - raisins, figs and oranges. Followed by hints of toasted almonds.

Palate

Rich, sherry sweetness & spiced fruit cake. Hints of orange and vanilla rounded off with oak warmth.

Finish

Cracked black pepper brings a warmth, over hints of sweet red fruits.

Wonderful nose - very appealing with Sherry, malt, fresh spring dew, and salty sea air. Sherry, dark chocolate, spice, oranges, oak, and salt are evident on the palate. Finish is smooth, spicy, refined and long. Excellent quality dram that is slightly reminiscent of higher end Macallan offerings.

Sherry, oranges, dark chocolate, sea air

Sherry, orange peels, dark chocolate, honey, salt, oak

Finish

Refined, slightly spicy, oily
