Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonThick quite perfect sherry influence. No off-notes that disturbs anywhere. Great spices, on cardemon, cinnamon. Just pure good stuff, quite rare these days. Wow, taste is so intense. Lots of wood, all the spices and so big on sherry influence. Quite excellent indeed and a pure-bred sherry monster.
Krishna NukalaComplex sherried nose.Lots of dry fruits like you come across such a whisky like-Dates, raisins, Prunes etc. Extraordinarily sweetness, and very hot. Fire on palate. Leaves with stunning burst of fire crackers.Could be a Karuizawa, Glen Grant or a Glendronach (Blind tasting notes of MMA 2013)- This turned out to be ultimate over all winner of MMA 2013
