Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonSerious sweet-dry-sour (?) sherrywood here. Heavy, potent, dominating completely on dried fruits. Dark sugar, perhaps even surypy, so intense. Absolutely silly on raisin. Exciting. Wow, taste massive on a rather excellent sherrywood influence. A bit sourly but really without any off-notes. Concentrated reduced raisin in the aftertaste. Dry, bitter at the end. Love the extremeness.
Krishna NukalaDeeply sherried.Spices. Dark rich fruits.Prunes, figs, Christmas cake. Brilliantly rich. Festival of rich dry fruits. You can not expect any thing less from this kind of whisky. Marvelous. (Blind Tasting Notes on MMA 2013)
