Holy balls this is good
As a whisky lover with a clear bias towards Scottish whisky, I was blown away by this. Captivating nose, mouth watering taste, fascinating finish. Lovely stuff.

Water not included
One of the most lovely whiskies I have ever had the pleasure to taste...........I do recommend a " tear" of water to allow the bouquet and full flavours to come out from behind the alcohol

Nose: very rich sherry taste, the fruitiness immediately shocks the system and stands out.
Palate: again the sherry takes over, it immediately grabs your attention. As sips go on the fruitiness comes out a little more.
Finish: even with the sweetness, it is hard to hide 57.8% alcohol. It can be quite harsh on the throat and leaves a taste which lingers.
Overall: It's a nice flavour if you're a big fan of sherry. However, it's an expensive bottle at over £100.

Tasted both the Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon and Sherry during my last trip to Taiwan. The Sherry is such a beast that rock the whisky world. Having tasted both neat and with a few drops of water, I can assure you that water literally bring the whisky alive.
Nose: Very strong sherry influence with lots of fruits, and a bit of dark chocolate at the back. Palate: Mouth drying sherry that virtually bounce on your tongue like flamenco. Quite a lot of fruits and spices. End with some cocoa and nuts. Finish: Very long and gradual diminish.
I can see this as a love-it-or-hate-it whisky. Some maybe scared by the strength and aggressiveness of it. But for those who like the Aberlour A'bundah or the GlenDronach Cask Strength, this is something that you must try.
